Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-vous Haute Joaillerie Collection – Rendez-Vous Tourbillon, Rendez-Vous Night & Day Rendez-Vous Celestial and Rendez-Vous Tourbillon Haute Joaillerie

Jaeger-LeCoultre now offers new high jewellery and gem set versions of the timepieces from its magnificent Rendez-Vous collection. The models that come in sparkling variations are Rendez-Vous Tourbillon, Rendez-Vous Night & Day Rendez-Vous Celestial and a more precious Rendez-Vous Tourbillon Haute Joaillerie timepiece.

Rendez-Vous Tourbillon
A worthy descendant of the models presented in previous years, the new Rendez-Vous Tourbillon model adopts a shimmering natural mother-of-pearl décor to show off its tourbillon regulator. The technical nature of the model is heightened by subtle aesthetic touches that give it an air of nobility and distinction. The dial is discreetly enlivened by various blue accents, from the hands to the chapter ring and from the screws to the sapphires. A precious gem-setting composed of alternating diamonds and sapphires crown the tourbillon and is reflected in the mother-of-pearl, exquisitely highlighting its grey and blue tints.

The white gold case bears a gem-set bezel and lugs, as well as a middle rimmed by a rail of gemstones. Finally, the winding crown is adorned with an inverted diamond. Inside this luminous costume beats the heart of a genius: the famous Jaeger LeCoultre Calibre 978 driving the watch. Its 22-carat pink gold oscillating weight as well as its Haute Horlogerie finishes may be admired through the sapphire crystal case-back.

Rendez-Vous Night & Day
Round, infinitely round. While the graceful curves of the Rendez-Vous watch have won women’s hearts, the new entirely diamond-set creation will doubtless put a sparkle in their eyes. While detracting nothing from its character and its already iconic aesthetic, 468 or 699 gems respectively adorn the 29 mm and 36 mm-diameter versions.

In addition to the setting on the white gold case, the dial also features a central graded setting that plays on various sizes to achieve an effect radiating out from 6 o’clock and highlighting the day/night indication. The latter appears on a blue background echoing the blued hands and matched by the satin strap in the same shade.

Rendez-Vous Tourbillon Haute Joaillerie
A sparkling hymn to the rare crafts cultivated by the Grande Maison, the Rendez-Vous Tourbillon Haute Joaillerie is a distilled blend of expertise brilliantly combining high technical demands with sophisticated aesthetics. Driven by the famous Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 978 tourbillon movement, renowned for its precision and its reliability, it reveals the beating of its mechanical heart and the regularly ticking of the seconds at 6 o’clock.

The dial testifies to the masterful skills of the in-house designers and artisans: topped by an openworked gold chapter ring, a splendid backdrop of gems mingling grain and rock settings adorns several levels, while the association of brilliant and baguette-cut stones lights up the hours and creates fascinating depth effects. The luminous stage-setting is further enhanced by the white gold case also hosting variously cut gems that accentuate its architecture.

Rendez-Vous Celestial
Following on from the eponymous model presented last year, the new Rendez-Vous Celestial features a bezel set with baguette-cut diamonds and is issued in a limited edition. The gems light up the zodiac calendar, with the month indicator serving to show the position of the constellations at any time of the year, via an annual calendar that regulates the time display and measurement system. The mechanical automatic movement, JaegerLeCoultre Calibre 809, turns the disc counter-clockwise in relation to the stars, almost imperceptibly in step with the rotation of the Earth in 23 hours, 56 minutes and 4 seconds. The dial succumbs to the appeal of rare handcrafts while preserving readability.

The hour numerals with their contemporary design stretch across the curve of a hand-guilloché crescent coated with a transparent blue lacquer. The hours arc tops a disc offering a captivating view of the sky chart with the constellation transferred on a blue mother-ofpearl background. In a resolutely poetic spirit, the designers of this model have chosen to integrate a shooting star intended to personalise time: controlled by the crown adorned with an inverted diamond, this mobile heavenly body enables the wearer to set her very own rendezvous with the stars.
