Vintage Ads: The Series – Part #6 Advertising as art
Hello Vintage Jaeger-LeCoultre Lovers, For my 5K post I though I should post some about the more artistic styles of the JLC ads thru the history. What’s interesting is that in Jeager-LeCoultre ads a lot of art and graphic elements was used while in Jaeger...
Bloman, Your saga continues to amazes all of us. This one, even if it's a 1958 ad, sounds like "Take Five", played by the "The Dave Brubeck Quartet" (the first recording was in 1959). Cheers...
Like JLC watches…
Their ads are a never ending story..! Thank you, Nilo! Best Blomman
There are some very strong ads, here.
Well, the 1958 ad featuring the Geophysic in Rose Gold, of course, but one is speaking very lous to me. This one: Time, personalized, walking on a cloud, and flying among the clouds, at the same time, this blend of day and night, and the title: " Eloge of...
Indeed.. THAT is the One .. :))
- which EVERYONE would cherish , says it all, and very poetically so .. On a smaller note, I recently have been quite lucky .. to find few others, not as famous, but very nice , too. Many of these vintage ones are true gems, and confirm that ad and art ca...
Sounds promising.. I'll do so humbly in return ! :)
- indeed, they are terrific gifts, and fascinating witnessess of times gone by. Sometimes, these can also help us to underdtand, - on other occasions they pose new riddles .. Always enjoyable .. Best for Saturday evening, hs
Oh, what I almost forgot.....
Oh, what I almost forgot.. Will keep my eyes open .. Maybe something pops up one more time, from this source .. Can't promise, but I'll try: - maybe once I could find something for you.. Best, hs Am 16.07.2011 um 20:22 schrieb www watchprosite < w[Email a...
As so many times before…
We have the same favourite, Nicolas! And the same idée – me I am hunting a second copy to frame. First copy always goes in to my black book archive… Actually, I think it would be very nice to make theme in a watch room with all the “Éloge du Temps” on the...
No Black Book .. But nice White Wall .. YET:
I truly can relate to these little marvels.. - but only have found some very few, which I however like a lot .. .. Not yet a single one from the ?loge du Temps Series, which I would absolutely adore . So still a long path, also on this Avenue.. Try to fol...
Re: In two they come…
Yes, Vlad and Mr 666! Only downside with such a leader is that you will end up with 2 small holes in your neck! Best, my friend – and be careful with your neck! Blomman
outstanding, thank you blomann
These ads remember me the art & science themes which was dear to general motors back in in its glory days of the 50's. thanks for sharing. best regards georges
Thank you, Georges!
A lot of beautiful ads were made in the 50’s! Cars, perfume, even cigarette ads! Best Blomman
re" Part #6
Congrats on 5k and a great way to do it with another wonderful post! I like the 1954 ad with the hands drawn in pencil/scribble, the watches pop out due to the contrast of black lines. It'll be interesting how those in the future view today's ads by JLC. ...
The 1954 scribble series I like a lot too! So simple but yet very appealing! Thank you, MW! Posts (and time) fly fast when you are enjoying yourself! Best Blomman
Fantastic way to celebrate your 5000!
Love these ads. It's so reflect of the brand and the European influences. Romantic tributes to a great brand! blomman, where do you store all these?
Ohh.. Those Black Books .. are really something ;-)
Was lucky enough to get a peek or two , - pretty Dark Art in there, I learned .. Well, one has to start early, always digging deep - and trying to hang on.. That can make some journeys hilarious , as we got to know ! Always a pleasure being at your wings ...

Your Vintage time travel about Ads and Art is a keeper, a very nice reference , ) - but also a pleasure to read and look at !! ( Some I had known, eg from Marv's also great post about 'A Journey Through Vintage Ads' - maybe a nice further read and some on...
Re: Ads & Art…
Indeed, Marv has a stunning selection of ads! I still some of them in my book… But I am working on filling the blanks! Thank you very much, my friend – very kind of you! I will do my best to keep them coming… Best Blomman
These are really great examples of illustration and graphic design. A lost art.
Truly a lost art!
Nowadays it’s most about beautiful people… Don’t get me wrong – I do like to look at beautiful people, but the artwork is not the same anymore. Thank you, Le Chef! Best Blomman

A personal milestone…
Half way to 5-figures…! Thank you, my friend! Always important to look back, it might help you on your way forward! Best Blomman
Thanks Blomman, great series and this addition is
a real topper for me. Ads from my birth year and wedding year. It is still amazing how the ads pull one in, take you back and still marvel at how great these watches look. You have also reminded me to revive my Vintage watches, waiting patiently for some ...
JLC has always been very artistic!
Thank you for your nice words, Ping! Will come back with more soon… Best Blomman PS. A belated congrats on your 1K post - great work from all the moderators here!
