The story of Jacques Lemans
It all started in a small town in Carinthia, Austria, when the two brothers decided to set up a watch brand named Jacques Lemans. From idea to first sketches, from final design to production, marketing and sales, Jacques Lemans creates all of his own resources. That's why Jacques Lemans is the notion of a stable company with decades of tradition and millions of customers all over the world. This watch company is a 100% independent family business that is directly owned by the owners. Leadership consists of the shareholders of Alfred and Norbert Riedl. Watches are a key player in the major European markets and a leader in Austria with its own brand stores. Do you need a helping hand when choosing? Here are six stylish options for you.
