Recently, Benedict, the famous British actor, the ambassador of Jaeger-LeCoultre, attended the watchmaking courses in brand’s flagship store. Firstly he viewed and emulated the process that Richard Phipps-Carter disassembled the calibre 925. Richard Phipps-Carter jointed Jaeger-LeCoultre 31 years ago. Then Benedict experienced how to assemble the components by the traditional watchmaking tool.
Richard shared his professional knowledge with Benedict. Later he viewed several movement that Jaeger-LeCoultre manufactured by itself in the glass cabinet. He wore the Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris copy with black dial during the visit and learning, which is inspired by the classic model in 1968.
After the visit he knew that all the delicate US fakeJaeger-LeCoultre watches embody the high level of craftsmanship and timeless patience. To some extent, acting is the same with watchmaking which also needs attention and carefulness.
The film “The Favourite” won the annual best British film and the directer Yorgos Lanthimos wore the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master copy with steel case to attend the adward ceremony, perfectly presenting his elegance and gentleness. “The Favourite” also won other 6 awards including best actress, best costume design, best original screenplay, best supporting actress, best makeup and hair design and best art direction.
While Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman won the nomination of best film, best adapted screenplay and best director. He wore the Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris to attend the ceremony. The knockoff watch with dark brown leather strap makes the wearers very gentle and reliable.
