Jaeger- LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Celestial

Rendez-Vous Celestial stands out with its enamel dial, its hand-painted disc of the sky made of lapis lazuli, its bezel set with different shades of sapphires, and its shimmering diamonds.

This treasure trove of creativity draws inspiration from the once-in-a-lifetime impression left by the astonishing Northern Lights, and is softly powered by the rhythmic swaying of its automatic movement, the Jaeger- LeCoultre Calibre 809/1. Generously proportioned at 37.5 mm, this characterful watch offers a precise view of the movement of the constellations, as seen from the northern hemisphere. With its captivating hues ranging from deep blue to intense purple, it makes time more beautiful.
Jaeger-LeCoultre brought together all the inventiveness and creative virtuosity of its Rare Handcrafts « Métiers Rares™ » for this High Jewellery piece. The circle of baguette-cut sapphires around the bezel alone is a work of art. The play of light reflected off it like a mirror gives an impression that, while decorative, remains extremely well-balanced. The new Rendez-Vous Celestial is an invitation to dive into successive depths of blue, pink, and purple. Under these clear vaults of heaven, the exquisite gradation of colour continues around the case-band. The Rendez-Vous collection’s emblematic floral numerals on the upper part of the dial are skeletonised on a plate of white gold that elegantly matches the case’s preciousness.
