Visit to the Sound Maker Exhibition by Jaeger-LeCoultreBy Revolution
Revolution visited The Sound Maker exhibition in New York City and had an opportunity to interview Stéphane Belmont, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s director of heritage. After a two-and-a-half-weeks of welcoming watch enthusiasts and clients, the exhibition ended today.
The exhibition featured a curated selection of the earliest and most historically significant of the Jaeger-LeCoultre’s chiming masterworks, chronological display of Memovox models with alarm complication, and special timepieces from the Atelier des Métiers Rare.
The exhibition also featured a fascinating ‘Sound Sculpture’ installation commissioned by Jaeger-LeCoultre from the Swiss contemporary artist, Zimoun.
Lastly, Jaeger-LeCoutre offered 90-minute Atelier d’Antoine discovery workshops where participants went hands-on with chiming timepieces under the supervision of maison’s master watchmakers.
