After the successful launch of Rendez-Vous Ivy Minute Repeater in 2014, prestigious Swiss watch manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre now adds a tourbillon complication to its highly feminine Rendez-Vous Ivy line of timepieces. In this new creation, the tourbillon displays the high-level mechanics of its mobile carriage. It rotates once a minute, thus compensating for variations in rate due to gravity, whatever the position of the wrist.
The opening reveals this emblematic watchmaking complication is emphasised by a row of diamonds. The ivy motif appears to surge from the tourbillon to bloom on the dial, thus playing a key role in the stage setting of the watch face. Like a radiating girandole composition with the tourbillon at its heart, ivy leaves unfold in swirls. At 3, 6 and 12 o’clock, the “tree” ends with the hour numerals that are so characteristic of the Rendez-Vous Collection, blooming like slender flowers in a stylised bouquet.
