Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Moon Medium

Offering a jewelled interpretation of a function much loved by those of a dreamy disposition, the Rendez-Vous Moon Medium watch expresses the Manufacture’s jewellery and watchmaking expertise.

The moon phase stands outs very clearly against an elongated dial with its textured finish. A carefully worked elliptical guilloché pattern adorns the heart of the dial, while its shimmering moon has a sand-blasted finish that creates a surprising impression of depth and relief. In this inspired way, the Manufacture’s artisans faithfully reproduce the many facets of the moon, as it reflects shifting hues over time. This emblematic function demonstrates remarkable accuracy, needing a correction of only one day every 972 years.
Supremely feminine, this face is accentuated by a setting of brilliant-cut diamonds that heightens its brilliant sparkle. Something else is new, too: the discreet but notable role of the seconds hand, which emphasises the top-flight watchmaking expertise required for this model.
