The Atelier d’Antoine Discovery Workshop
To complete the exhibition, the Atelier d’Antoine – named after the Manufacture’s founder – has been specially relocated to New York City, giving visitors the opportunity to enjoy a unique, hands-on adventure with chiming timepieces. Together with an instructor and a technical expert, attendees will discover why watches go `tick-tock` and how time can be expressed through sound.
To be fully immersed within the Jaeger-LeCoultre universe, participants will use larger-scale models to try to replicate the work of the Maison’s highly skilled watchmakers.
The 90-minute Atelier d’Antoine discovery workshops are accessible to the public for a fee. With classes limited to a maximum of 6 participants, pre-booking is required at www.thesoundmakernyc.com.
THE SOUND MAKER exhibition will be presented from September 21st through October 5th at 70-74 Gansevoort in New York City. Open to the public by reservation only, from 11am to 7pm on Monday through Friday, and 10am to 7pm on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets may be reserved online free of charge at www.thesoundmakernyc.com.
