For its Hybris Artistica version, the artisans at Jaeger-LeCoultre considered how to fully pave the Rendez-Vous Tourbillon with diamonds, while maintaining the extremely expressive and distinctive features of the model. They recreated the composition of the Rendez-Vous dial, which, while it remains recognisable, is transfigured by alternating baguettes-cut and round diamonds.
Born from the imagination of the gem setters of the Manufacture, Rock-Setting® is characterised by an exceptional arrangement of the stones to reveal the fire of diamonds of the finest water.
Thus selected and positioned according to the art that the Manufacture has perfected, the gems seem to require no setting at all, leaving no underlying metal visible. The lustre of the stones reaches new heights of stunning brilliance. Above all, the dial offers a face of infinite purity perfectly suited to this iconic model that emphasises feminine beauty.
In the same spirit, the 18-carat white gold bracelet of the JLC Rendez-Vous Tourbillon Hybris Artistica watch has been completely redesigned. Even more fluid, it has an assertive Haute Joaillerie aesthetic that makes it an integral part of this elegant timepiece.
The superbly integrated lugs have been reworked and tightened so that they fit naturally to the bracelet that is one with the watch. Enhanced by a particularly striking setting style, the bracelet is a strong element of the design of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Hybris Artistica Rendez-Vous Tourbillon.
Faced with such brilliance, the only response possible is absolute limpidity. Thus, the oscillating weight support is made of sapphire crystal in order not to break the spell of transparency.
With this unique model, Jaeger-LeCoultre undertakes an exercise in style that reflects its ultimate attention to detail and the art of setting diamonds to reveal their breathtaking fire.
