The Rendez-Vous Moon Jewellery timepieces are the perfect synthesis of watchmaking and jewellery precision.
Swiss luxury watch and clock manufacturer Jaeger-LeCoultre continues to make its mark on the history of watchmaking with new Rendez-Vous models revealed at SIHH 2019. Rendez-Vous Night & Day Jewellery and Rendez-Vous Moon Jewellery are new versions showing a stunning richness of detail. High Jewellery elements of the new timepieces include the addition of a prong setting, a new vision of moon phases, the distinct character of diamonds and mother-of-pearl, and the redesign of Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibres 898B and 925A.
According to Jaeger-LeCoultre, Rendez-Vous Night & Day Jewellery is a timeless model “sure to charm any sophisticated woman with a taste for jewellery watches made for nights out on the town.”
With an automatic movement nestled in a generous case (36 mm), Rendez-Vous Night & Day Jewellery watch is combining gold, mother-of-pearl and diamonds. The prong setting takes centre stage on these new Rendez-Vous Jewellery models. These gem-setting techniques require extreme precision, attention to detail, and a remarkable degree of patience.
The jewellery watch spirit is undeniable even at a glance, with a new adornment featuring mother-of-pearl on the dial and three rows of diamonds including the prong setting.
“Starring the new Dazzling Rendez-Vous Night & Day, a truly breathtaking wonder of watchmaking and refinement. With a new griffe setting technique, this timepiece expresses generosity and preciousness: the form of its case and floral numerals, its two rows of diamonds and mother-of-pearl dial enlightens its Night & Day function.” – Jaeger-LeCoultre luxury watchmaking manufacture.
The day/night indicator moves across a starry sky of mother-of-pearl within a 6 o’clock aperture. The three rows of sparkling diamonds unfurl gracefully, the effect only further enhanced by the brilliance of the iridescent surface. The precious bezel, set with 126 diamonds, shines with stunning radiance. Another row of 47 smaller diamonds is nestled away gently inside the dial, while the lugs are also set with 12 diamonds. A single diamond adorns the inverted cabochon, for the perfect finishing touch of refinement. In this sumptuous setting, the unique hands and floral numerals, so emblematic of the Rendez-Vous collection, are able to shine in all their glory, explained Jaeger-LeCoultre artisans.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Moon Jewellery
Two rows of brilliant-cut diamonds flowing along the outline of the bezel and continuing to the heart of the mother-of-pearl dial. A new vision of moon phases to enhance the model with pure soul and femininity. The white gold version keeps perfect time with elegant women who crave timepieces that are equal parts watchmaking and jewellery. If the character of time truly is round and feminine, “Rendez-Vous Moon Jewellery” is the perfect choice of title.
On the Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Moon Jewellery model, a starry sky of aventurine midnight blue serves as the perfect backdrop for the new face of the moon, reimagined here fully in mother-of-pearl. A translucent cloud stands in the foreground before the new moon phase function, both veiling and revealing.
