CEO Alfred Riedl | Jacques Lemans®

Quality and Tradition since 1975

"My goal was to build an international watch brand and at the same time contribute to the regional economic success", says Founder and CEO Alfred Riedl about the start of Jacques Lemans. Today, the company has evolved to a global player with full-range offering: Jacques Lemans watches are available at numerous global sales partners and distributors in every style and price range.

The brand represents timeless elegance, innovative technology as well as durability and meets the highest quality demands.

From one generation to the next

Jacques Lemans is a tradition-conscious family business with an international focus and regional roots. With the start of his son Andreas Riedl in the company, the continuation as a family business is secured into the next generation. The goal, to support the local economy and bring sustasinable and innovative products to market, connects both generations.

Everything from a single source

One major factor for the success of Jacques Lemans is the concentration of essential strategic areas, such as research and development, marketing, logistics, quality control and distribution in the headquarters in St. Veit in Southern Austria. This makes short decision paths possible and creates a flexible business structure to quickly react to new trends. The pursuit of quality and perfection is always the top priority.

More than a watch brand

Jacques Lemans may be known as a watch brand, however, the family company stopped fitting into this narrow box a long time ago. With countless sponsoring activities, charity purposes and special projects in the culture and sports area Jacques Lemans leaves the art of watchmaking and becomes a cultural landmark.

A special project of the company is Burg Taggenbrunn. After many years of renovation work, an extraordinary project was finally realized by the ambitious family Riedl. In November 2019 the public was finally able to see the wonderful project: the historic jewel castle Taggenbrunn opened its gates.

Castle Taggenbrunn and the 'Taggenbrunner Festspiele' event are connected to the Jacques Lemans Group and the realisation of a vision.
This way the world-famous watch company creates a cultural highlight in Carinthia.
