    Question maybe some afraid to ask: How do you pronounce...

    A Question maybe some afraid to ask.

    Being basically a newbie to the watch collecting world, I would like to confirm, clarify, or just genuinely find out the answer/s to the following question below. As I am opening my eyes to new watchmakers, I see their names, but wonder if I sayng their names correctly or not? I certainly would not like to learn in public the corect way when I go to a Jeweller or try to talk watch talk with some other collector...

    So without further delay...

    Please give a phonetic pronouncement. ALL: please add to the thread if there are other names we want to phonetically clarify! Here's a few to start....

    How do you pronounce correctly the following watchmaker's names?

    Tag Heuer

    Audemars Piguet

    Maurice Lacroix

    Yep, Hoyer is definitely correct.

    Mike, thanks for the link. That's a very informative web-site.

    Now, does anyone know how to pronounce Jaeger Le-Coultre?

    It's in the link, 5th row, far right.

    Yeager Lee-Coul-tre, or Jay-El-Cee.
