As the part of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Rendez-Vous collection 2017, which is to be unveiled at SIHH 2017, the Rendez-Vous Sonatina Large model comes equipped 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.
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. Inside each Sonatina Large model, beats a hand-decorated 735 Calibre automatic movement.
