Jaeger-LeCoultre Replica Watches pays tribute to Charlie Chaplin, artist both in front and behind the camera, by becoming a partner of Chaplin’s World, a museum dedicated to the life and work of Charlie Chaplin. In the heart of Manoir de Ban, Chaplin’s World redraws the last twenty five years of Charlie Chaplin’s life in Switzerland. A Hollywood studio will offer a surprising dumping in the cinematic world of Charlot. Dived into alleys or mythical sets, the spectator discovers or rediscovers the masterpieces of Charlie Chaplin. Chaplin’s World will open to the public on April 17th, 2016.
Jaeger-LeCoultre has an ongoing history with the artist and his family. When the film actor and director set up home in Switzerland in 1953, the cantonal authorities saluted this outstanding figure by giving him a very personal present: a Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox watch featuring a gold case engraved with the following inscription: “Hommage du gouvernement Vaudois à Charlie Chaplin – 6 octobre 1953″. Ever since, this mechanical watch equipped with an alarm function has been carefully safeguarded by the Chaplin family. Recently restored to its former glory by the Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre, Chaplin’s Memovox is now back in the historical home of its first owner, where visitors to Chaplin’s World can enjoy the pleasure of viewing this legendary watch displayed in the manor house.
Replica UK Jaeger-LeCoultre was once again chosen as a means of paying tribute to Charlie Chaplin in May 1972, when he was awarded “Caméra souriante” (smiling camera) prize by the Swiss press photographers association. The latter wished to honour the artist for his kind attitude towards national journalists and this homage to a warm-hearted man took the shape of an Atmos clock. This clock is said to live on air, because its movement is wound by variations in ambient temperature. Jaeger-LeCoultre has now loaned Charlie’s World an Atmos Classique identical to the one presented to Charlie Chaplin at the time.
