The Sound Maker exhibition by Jaeger-LeCoultre opened at Dongdaemun Design Plaza in Seoul on Tuesday, 15th of June, in the presence of Kim Woo-Bin, a Friend of the Maison.
The Sound Maker exhibition immerses visitors in the creative and cultural universe of Jaeger-LeCoultre, exploring the uniquely rich heritage of chiming watches at La Grande Maison, and paying homage to its home in the Vallée de Joux.
The exhibition features a curated selection of the earliest and most historically significant of the Manufacture LeCoultre’s chiming masterworks, together with dozens of documents and archive materials – many of which have never been displayed to the public before. As visitors tour the exhibition, they enjoy the evolution in both technical skill and artistic expression, from pocket watches to minute repeater wrist watches and the Memovox, along with special pieces from the Atelier des Métiers Rares® (Rare Handcrafts Workshop).
Acclaimed actor Kim Woo-Bin, a new Friend of Maison, joined in celebrating the opening of the exhibition and meeting with the press. “Throughout the exhibition, I could feel and experience the heritage of Jaeger-LeCoultre in a new way, and I was amazed by its beautiful timepieces“, he remarked after touring the exhibits.
