Finding a reputable Jaeger LeCoultre watch repair specialist in New York can be challenging, unless of course you are planning to bring your watch back to Jaeger LeCoultre. Although delivering your watch back to the manufacturer might feel like the right decision there are ways you can save time and money, as with JLC the repair can get very pricy and take anywhere from 6 to 12 months or longer depending on the type of repair needed.

Service intervals depend on many factors including frequency and type of usage. To be on the safe side it is recommended having your Jaeger-LeCoultre timepiece serviced at least once every four to five years, just as you would with any other precise mechanical device. This service interval guarantees the watch's reliability and precision. It is very important to understand that when in use your watch is running non-stop 24 hours a day and seven days a week. The oil and lubrication will eventually dry out and could cause undue wear to the internal components of the watch's movement. Regular maintenance will prevent this from happening.
Only highly trained watchmakers can carry out restoration work or maintenance on new or vintage Jaeger-LeCoultre watches. Such specific and highly qualified work is what our family does at Manhattan Time Service, using the most up-to-date techniques and equipment. Furthermore, we benefit from continuous training in order to improve the level of service we can offer our customers. Each watch sent to us is examined by our master watchmaker and a series of tests are carried out before a detailed cost estimate is prepared free of charge. This estimate is presented to you before any work is done. We will always give special attention to your Jaeger-LeCoultre timepiece while it is here, and we use all genuine Jaeger-LeCoultre materials when required for replacement.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre timepiece brand is a statement of elegance and innovation. It comes with a long-established Swiss heritage and passion for precision. LeCoultre also founded his company on the premise that the boundaries of timekeeping should always be pushed, and his company crafted more than 350 different timepiece calibers in the first thirty years. So instead of resting on the laurels of only one design, Jaeger-LeCoultre always strives to provide its users something unique.
In 1833, on a small family farm in Le Sentier, Vaud, Switzerland, Antoine LeCoultre founded a workshop for manufacturing luxury timepieces. LeCoultre was a great visionary and contributed a number of major technological advancements in the industry throughout his life.
In 1937, Antoine’s grandson, Jacques-David LeCoultre, oversaw the union between Parisian Edmond Jaeger and the beginning of the Jaeger-LeCoultre watch brand. The new brand broadened the company’s reputation and blended high-end Swiss watchmaking with French style and overall influence.
