JAEGER-LeCOULTRE FOR NEW YEAR

Kas 29th, 2016

In 2017, Jaeger-LeCoultre is writing a new chapter in the story of its Rendez-Vous collection of women’s
timepieces. Originally introduced by the Maison in 2012, Rendez-Vous is a collection bearing all the hallmarks
of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Métiers Rares™ (Rare Crafts), impeccable timekeeping accuracy, unrivalled excellence in
craftsmanship and the breathtaking artistry of its jewellery designs and settings.
The new Rendez-Vous collection, once again the result of the combined talents of the watchmakers and
craftspeople of the Manufacture in the Vallée de Joux, is a celebration of horology designed for women, with
sophisticated materials in muted and sparkling tones reinforcing the timeless style of these elegant, noble
timepieces.
The introduction of a moon phase and a new chiming reminder function, yellow and rose gold options, a larger
size and sumptuous new straps, all reflect the popularity of the Rendez-Vous collection worldwide, among art,
design and watch lovers alike.
A rich gamut of colours, including yellow and rose gold watch cases, takes inspiration from the constantly
changing light of the sun and the moon, from the first glows of dawn to the vibrant shades of dusk, turning to
a moonlit sky as day turns to night – eliciting colours, reflections and emotions to accompany and inspire a
woman every moment of her life, whatever the occasion and wherever she may be.
At the heart of every Rendez-Vous timepiece is an impeccably precise automatic movement coupled with the
aesthetic perfection of a rare, precious jewel. The new Rendez-Vous unveils the secrets of watchmaking
mastery at its finest, both in technique and artistry – from the elaborate ornamentation of its movement to the
elegant adornment of its dial, from the delicate setting of its diamonds and sapphires to the presentation of its
timekeeping functions.

Rendez-Vous Night & Day

Beauty around the clock
Rendez-Vous Night & Day now reveals itself in a new light. Available in three sizes and in a choice of materials,
including yellow gold, and featuring a new function, Rendez-Vous Night & Day is adorned with straps of steel,
ostrich or alligator leather and comes in a spectrum of colours, each alluding to different moments in the daily
life of a woman, from the first gleams of daybreak to the moonlit night.
Rendez-Vous Night & Day Large
A new size
With its case of 38.2mm in diameter – a larger than ever case for this collection – Rendez-Vous Night & Day
Large enables women to change their watch straps or buckles as they wish, without the need for tools to do
so. As an alternative to the delicate subtlety of the steel version adorned with a steel or a leather strap, some
may prefer the tender femininity of the rose gold version, set with brilliant cut diamonds and available with an
ostrich leather strap.
A supremely delicate watch dial
The graceful, elliptical guilloché dial of the Rendez-Vous Night & Day Large reflects the light, while its texture
brings the watch to life. Understated and refined, with its night and day display and delicate floral type hands,
it is the result of tireless work by the craftspeople at the Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre, devoted to the fine art
of watchmaking.
Rendez-Vous Night & Day Medium
A precious metal to reflect the times
Jaeger-LeCoultre introduces yellow gold into the Rendez-Vous timepiece collection for the first time. Gold –
noble and precious, be it in the form of an elegant bezel, understated lugs or a finely designed buckle – merges
naturally with the skin. To emphasize the gold lustre of the bezel, the silver dial is adorned with an elegant
guilloché. Coupling yellow gold with a pink watch strap makes for a simple, daring and ultra-feminine sartorial
statement, transforming a watch into a jewel, to be worn close to the skin every day.

 

Rendez-Vous Sonatina Large
A new feature in the world of women’s watches
To provide a discreet reminder of an upcoming rendez-vous, Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre’s watchmakers
have created the Rendez-Vous Sonatina Large, complete with a new function. It chimes at the appointed hour,
thanks to the mysterious little star that has marked out certain models of the Rendez-Vous line since its
inception, and that can be moved around the dial. The delicate tinkle of a single hammer strike is audible at the
selected time. When it is set using the top crown, this innovative feature comes as a surprise to the ear and
explains the name Sonatina, a musical term for a short melody.
Two versions to mark time
On the dial, with its fine guilloché finish resembling raw silk, are blue steel hands, a design signature of traditional
Swiss watchmaking. The elegant night and day indicator appears in a semi-circle at 6am, complementing the
rendez-vous star at its side.
In addition to a rose gold version, the Rendez-Vous Sonatina Large is also available in white gold with a dial of
amethyst shades and brilliant cut diamonds adorning its bezel, lugs and the rim of its case. True to their
reputation as virtuosos of colour, the Maison’s artists have embellished this sensual dial with captivating
graduated hues. To be found concealed beneath are the meticulous workings of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s new 735
Calibre automatic movement. What better homage could be paid by the Métiers Rares™ (Rare Crafts)
to the mists of time?
