Since Jaeger-LeCoultre's founding, the company has produced over 1,242 different calibres. Registered approximately 400 patents and created hundreds of inventions. In 1844, Antoine LeCoultre invented the Millionomètre, which was the first instrument in history capable of measuring the micron, allowing for the precise manufacture of watch parts. The invention was never patented, as no such system existed in Switzerland at the time. However, its unique composition was kept a closely guarded secret, used by the company for more than fifty years.
It was presented at the Universal Exhibition. In 1847, Antoine invented a keyless watch. The second simple and reliable winding and time-setting system to do without a key after Patek Philippe. Instead, it relied on a small push-piece that activated a lever to change over from one function to another.
Again, the invention was not patented. Allowing other watchmakers to quickly implement the system. In 1866, for the first time in watchmaking history, LeCoultre & Cie.Began to manufacture calibres with small complications. In small series, and in 1891 combined the chronograph. Complications into a double complication calibre. This subsequently led in the mid-1890s to the production of grandes complications, or watches comprising at least three classic horological complications, such as a perpetual calendar. In 2004, the Manufacture created the Gyrotourbillon I, its first grande complication wristwatch, featuring a tourbillon.
Gravitating on two axes, along with a perpetual calendar with double retrograde indicators and a running equation of time. In 2006, it released the Reverso grande complication à triptyque, the first watch in history to be equipped with three dials driven by a single movement. And in 2009 the company produced one of the world's most complicated wristwatches, the Hybris Mechanica à Grande Sonnerie with 26 complications. In 1907, the LeCoultre Calibre 145 set the record for the world's thinnest movement at 1.38 mm thick, appearing in pocket watches that remain to this day the thinnest in their category. From 1907 until the 1960s, the movement was produced in some 400 copies.
