Jaeger-LeCoultre presents a new gem-set version of the Rendez-Vous Dazzling Night & Day watch with a pink gold case, green sunray-brushed dial and matching green alligator leather strap. Dressed in a 36mm diameter case, this sparking jewellery watch is adorned with 168 diamonds.
On the bezel, 108 diamonds form two concentric rings around the case. The 36 diamonds on the outer ring is painstakingly set by using claw (or ‘griffe’) setting technique. The fine gold claws hold the diamonds high, giving the impression that they are floating around the watch case, rather than anchored to it.
Completing the case, an inverted diamond is set into the winding crown and three diamonds are set on each of the four lugs.
On the dial, an inner circle of 47 diamonds draws the eye to the Night & Day indication. Set on a disc that rotates every 24 hours, a pink gold crescent moon with a backdrop of stars slowly alternates with a polished golden sun as night turns to day. Signature elements of the Rendez-Vous Dazzling add further refinement: hours are marked by applied Arabic numerals in the emblematic floral style and polished golden hemispheres.
Inside this watch beats the JLC Calibre 898, a self-winding mechanical movement developed and produced entirely in-house and providing a power reserve of 38 hours.
Visible through the transparent sapphire case-back, the meticulously crafted movement features blued screws, circular graining on the wheels, and Côtes de Genève on the plates and the open-worked pink gold winding rotor.
