Endowed with its powerful and beautifully staged moon-phase display, the Rendez-Vous Moon of Jaeger-LeCoultre extends an enticing invitation to follow the guidance of the most feminine of celestial bodies.
Moon phases play the starring role, exuding an exceptionally powerful presence on this model. Generously proportioned and more radiant than ever, this display vividly reveals the creative freedom that drives the Grande Maison. Full moon, new moon, waxing gibbous, first quarter or first crescent: each and every step in its cycle can be experienced live. The decision to endow this horological complication with a degree of precision testifies to Jaeger LeCoultre’s strong commitment to the development of its new movement. While a classic moon phase shows a one-day deviation every two and a half years, the Rendez-Vous Moon is destined to remain accurate for 972 years.
Mother-of-pearl was the natural choice to adorn the moon disc. This material is symbolically associated with a variety of feminine, soothing and sometimes even protective virtues, such as smoothing out life’s difficulties and sorrows. The colour and the shimmering iridescence vary from one type of mother-of pearl to the next, but its emotional impact remains unchanged.
Diamonds also take part in this celebration of light, since gem-setting is one of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s traditional skills. On the white gold model, JaegerLeCoultre has opted to set the gems dancing along the side of the case all the way to the crowns, bezel and lugs, before unfurling in a glittering diadem above the numerals. The gem-setting thus creates a beaming circle of light both above and all around the watch. It is subtly modified in step with wrist movements. The two crowns are each set with an inverted diamond. One serves to adjust the time and the moon phase. The other guides the moving star serving to personalise time.
Jaeger-LeCoultre has opted to provide two versions of this new model, in 36 and 39 mm diameters. They share several characteristics, including the mother-of-pearl moon disc studded with constellations and sprinkled with cabochons representing the stars. Both versions come on a blue satin strap. The 36-mm Rendez-Vous Moon features a dial bearing blue numerals that echo the deep shade of the sky. Sparkling with the radiant fire of 166 brilliant cut diamonds, this model makes a perfect fit on the daintiest wrists.
The resulting pattern is coated with a blue lacquer that induces a unique depth effect, drawing the gaze into the nocturnal expanses of the dial framed by a seductive row of diamonds. A total of 208 brilliant-cut diamonds play their part in the exquisite gem-setting of this captivating creation.
