This 1960s Swiss “Rue de la Paix” lantern table clock by Jaeger LeCoultre belongs to a series of street lamp clocks produced by Jaeger-LeCoultre that he designed during the 1960s. Other examples feature emblematic roads from a range of cities, from New York’s ‘Wall Street’ to London’s ‘Portobello Road.’ This specific version of ‘Rue de la Paix’, is perhaps the most emblematic of the series.
An eccentric and playful object, executed with meticulous attention to detail, this could be a welcome addition to any desk or shelf.
