For the past eight years, Jaeger- LeCoultre has been committed to supporting UNESCO in striving to protect the marine treasures on the World Heritage List . Destruction of ecosystems through illegal fishing, pollution, unsustainable tourism : there are many conservation threats and it is vital to make people more mindful of them . Through its financial support and extensive involvement, the Manufacture contributes to the preservation of the most precious resources on our planet and to increasing public awareness.
The involvement of the Grande Maison h as enabled UNESCO to create a global network of marine managers for whom the Marine Programme at UNESCO’s World Heritage Centre serves as platform . Tri- annual meetings of all these managers enable sharing best practices in an unprecedented international coordination for ocean conservation . Beyond the financial aspect, Jaeger -LeCoultre’s support therefore also involves concrete action with those working on the ground.
Based in the mountains at the heart of the Vallée de Joux since 1833, on the edge of a magnificently maintained lake and forest, since its very beginnings, Jaeger-LeCoultre has been concerned with the natural environment and has been actively involved in protecting its integrity and beauty. Because of its international growth, it is quite natural for Jaeger-LeCoultre to extend its involvement to other sites than its own. The endeavours pursued through the Tides of Time partnership encompass not only natural treasures, but also a legacy of time that nothing can replace.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Miami Design District Boutique is open Monday through Saturday, 11am to 7pm and Sunday, 12pm to 6pm.
