Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Secret (Ref. Q3553306)

This high jewellery - horological masterpiece showcases the Grande Maison’s miniaturisation skills while reviving the aesthetics of a 1960s Jaeger-LeCoultre heritage watch.

Its slightly domed lid is adorned with diamonds of brilliant, baguette, and marquise cut, in a setting with four different hues of brilliant-cut sapphires that depicts a flower, seemingly captured by the ice and held in endless frozen beauty. All the gem-setter’s talent is apparent in this composition that brings out the beauty of every single one of the 304 stones embellishing the Rendez-Vous Secret.  The lid of the watch opens partially to show the time. The Rendez-Vous line’s emblematic numerals appear against a delicate mother-of-pearl dial, entwined in the engraved ivy leaves hand-painted in a shade of blue. The charm of this face is magnified by a row of bright and pure blue sapphires.
