Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin racingAdrian Fernandez visits the Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre
Adrian Fernandez, one of the Aston Martin team Le Mans driver, was the special guest of Jaeger-LeCoultre for an exceptional visit to the Manufacture. The visit once again confirmed the strong ties between Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin racing. Adrian Fernandez took a break in his racing season to visit the Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre. Welcomed by CEO Jérôme Lambert, he was invited to discover the mysteries of watch creation. This fascinating approach to the world of horological mechanisms gave him the opportunity to witness all the stages in the making of a watch. This journey to the heart of 177 years of history delighted the driver, who was also given a warm welcome by the entire personnel.
Adrian Fernandez’s said: ‘I had never been to a watch manufacture before. My visit to Jaeger-LeCoultre was very special. The way they work is like in racing. You have engineers, technicians, designers, mechanics, watchmakers to assemble and tune… They make a team to produce very unique watches, using pieces so small that it makes things even more complicated. I tried with my hand to hold some of the parts, screws that are even invisible to the naked eye. I was very impress with their attention to details and dedication. I can now appreciate even more the mechanism of my watch. The visit was one of the highlight of the year!’
