Recently this month, JAEGER-LeCOULTRE watches paid homage to the legendary actor, writer, director, composer, the late Sir Charles Chaplin at a very special event held in the honour of his Honorary Award he received 40 years ago, at the 44th Academy Awards held in 1972, which he received 'for the enduring effect he had in making motion pictures the art form of this century'. The manufacturers of high-end timepieces partnered with Carmen and Dolores Chaplin, the granddaughters of Sir Chaplin for this occasion.
Held at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, California, the home of Hollywood, the event was hosted by Carmen and Dolores Chaplin. Those in attendance were several Hollywood personalities, including Academy Award nominee and The Help actress Jessica Chastain, Quantum of Solace (James Bond) actress Olga Kurylenko, Before Sunrise and Before Sunset actress Julie Delpy, Superman Returns actress Kate Bosworth, among several others.
What turned out to be an exemplary celebration of the contribution to cinema made by Sir Chaplin and the legacy he left behind was in-sync with Jaeger-LeCoultre's commitment to film. Among the brand's other ongoing initiatives to support the art of film are their association with the film festivals in Shanghai, Abu Dhabi and Venice, and their annual Glory To The Filmmaker award.
