Jaeger-LeCoultre presents three exquisite variations of Rendez-Vous Sonatina celebrating “Peaceful Nature”, each offered in a limited edition of eight pieces. These supremely elegant timepieces embody three distinct expressions of refined and delicate femininity.
Testament to the rare talent of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s craftsmen, they unite the codes of fine watchmaking and the delicacy of Métiers Rares™ (Rare Handcrafts), celebrating the Art of Precision in both technical execution and aesthetic expression.
Elegant yet delicate, fragile yet strong, orchids and butterflies unite on the dials of this new edition of the Rendez-Vous Sonatina, expressing the most enchanting facets of the feminine character.
Giving full rein to the skill of the Maison’s artisans, these new timepieces call on three of the Métiers Rares™ (Rare Handcrafts) that Jaeger-LeCoultre has so thoroughly mastered: guillochage, micropainting on mother-of-pearl, and gem-setting.
The dials are engraved with a wavy guilloché motif that enhances the tonal variations of the mother-of pearl, then a delicate tint of pink, green or purple is added. Onto this gleaming background the exquisite composition of orchids and butterflies is brought to life by the artisan, one tiny brushstroke at a time.
A fine oval-shaped ring of diamonds draws the eye to the painted image where, set among the blooms, in a free-form, flower-shaped aperture, the Night & Day indicator is visible.
Set on the edge of the dial, a delicate gold star marks the time of a special rendezvous, moved into position by a second crown. When the time comes, the watch releases a single, melodious chime to remind the owner of her appointment.
This poetic and whimsical expression of femininity is brought to life by Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Manufacture Calibre 735. Specially for the JLC Sonatina watch, this self-winding movement is visible through the transparent sapphire case-back.
An alligator leather strap, matched to the dial colour and given a glowing, shiny finish, is fastened to the wrist by a pink gold buckle.
These special editions of Rendez-Vous Sonatina are limited to eight examples of each variation, and are available exclusively from Jaeger-LeCoultre boutiques.
