This year, a number of new models are joining the Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous women’s collection. These pieces are connected by a common theme: the colour blue. Mingling mystery, elegance, and sophistication, deep midnight blue brings an infinitely graceful hint of originality to the wrist. The dials, straps, hands, and day/night indicators of the Rendez-Vous models are bathed in blue’s majestic aura.
Rendez-Vous Night & Day Small and Rendez-Vous Night & Day Medium
The 29 mm or 34 mm stainless steel case of the Rendez-Vous Night & Day watch provides a dazzling yet mysterious setting for the extremely delicate day/ night indicator complication. The Rendez-Vous Night & Day watch reveals a playful contrast between a midnight blue dial and a dazzling, gem-set bezel. The sapphire crystal case-back uncovers part of the movement to lend a touch of sophistication to the watch.
The easily legible, powdered, silvered numerals on the dial of the Rendez-Vous Night & Day watch stand out delicately against the sunray-finished midnight blue dial. The alligator leather strap of the Rendez-Vous Night & Day watch matches the dial and features tone-on-tone topstitching. As it incorporates an interchangeability system, the strap can be changed over and over again without requiring a single tool.

Rendez-Vous Night & Day
The Rendez-Vous Night & Day watch in stainless steel expresses femininity by day and by night, exuding elegance down to its midnight blue, alligator leather strap. The dial of the Rendez-Vous Night & Day watch captures the gaze and sparks the imagination with its delicate finishes. The guilloché finishes imitate wild silk to create a material-effect backdrop against which the floral numerals, scattered with mounted diamonds, perform a gentle farandole. The seconds hand and floral blued steel hands mark the passing of time while adding to the general feeling of elegance.
In an opening at 6 o’clock on the dial, the sun and moon take turns to complete their daily course and indicate whether it is day or night. The topstitched midnight blue alligator leather strap delicately recalls the colour of the hands of the day/night indicator, adding an extremely elegant note that flatters the wrist. This automatic mechanical movement contains 204 parts and has a 40-hour power reserve.
The Rendez-Vous Tourbillon watch in white gold brings together Jaeger-LeCoultre’s watch and jewellery know-how, with its dazzling finishes and captivating mechanism. At 6 o’clock, the fascinating, midnight blue dial of the Rendez-Vous Tourbillon watch reveals a glimpse of one of the most sophisticated watch complications: the tourbillon. This ingenious mechanism cancels out the negative effects of gravity on the movement in any position, granting the watch optimal accuracy.
A row of brilliant-cut diamonds encircles the heart of the Rendez-Vous Tourbillon’s dial. This ring is then intersected by another precious circle to showcase the tourbillon. When combined with the gem-set bezel, they form a perfectly proportioned design.
The Grande Maison’s master jewellers have turned the Rendez-Vous Tourbillon in white gold into an exceptional jewel. The bezel is not the only part that dazzles; the case sides, the lugs and the crown – with its inverted diamond – also bathe the wrist in light and form contrasts with the midnight blue alligator leather strap.
This automatic mechanical movement contains 302 parts and a 45-hour power reserve.
