That’s why every watch combines three elements, including classic aesthetic design, mechanical movement with one or more complex functions, and rare craftsmanship (Métiers Rares®) showing unique charm. Jaeger-LeCoultre launched a variety of works based on the theme of ivy, leading people into the wonderful world of watchmaking, and admiring the exclusive masterpieces owned by former monarchs and leaders of various countries.

This perseverance is gradually associated with love, representing a relationship that is still unbreakable in adversity. With unparalleled endurance, Ivy has crossed the boundaries of time and is a timeless thing. In ancient times, the thick leaves of ivy were regarded as a symbol of the heart, the source of life and the source of enthusiasm. Ivy made crowns on athletes’ heads. It is also used in Rome to pay tribute to scholars and scholars. Ivy representing loyalty and reputation can be seen in the decorative patterns of different styles and times, which is very attractive.

Ivy, world famous decorative element
In the field of creative design, ivy has always been a popular material for designers. The plant’s arabesques first appeared in medieval manuscripts, and in the Baroque and Rococo periods, they became decorative elements of artistic style in buildings. Later, ivy shined in the Victorian era and was used in home wallpaper to contrast with the stylish Tiffany glass lamps. In terms of goldsmith craftsmanship, the theme of nature marked the heyday of the Art Nouveau movement, and ivy was an important part of it. Ivy also witnessed the change in the shape of the royal crown. The designer decorated the crown with precious stones, magnificent. Looking back at the history of Jaeger-LeCoultre, the appearance of the ivy pattern dates back to 1890 as a pocket watch with a dark red enamel caseback adorned with diamond-set ivy. In 2008, ‘The Great Workshop’ once again took inspiration from ivy and created a unique jewellery watch. The vivid ivy pattern bloomed endless charm.
