With a prong setting brought to life with the most meticulous and striking jewellery techniques, the new Dazzling Rendez-Vous pay tribute to the highest form of precision, both in craftsmanship and creative passion

In addition to the Dazzling Rendez-Vous Night & Day (available in white gold or in pink gold) and the Dazzling Rendez-Vous Moon (in white gold) launched at 2019 Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH), Jaeger-LeCoultre is delighted to present the new Dazzling Rendez-Vous Red at the occasion of the 22nd Shanghai International Film Festival.

Red: the colour of nobility, energy, passion, wisdom and good fortune. The colour of confident femininity – extroverted and undeniably glamorous.

With Dazzling Rendez-Vous Red, Jaeger-LeCoultre presents its emblematic Night & Day function in a radiant new setting that combines pink gold, white mother-of-pearl, white diamonds and the rich glow of rubies. Created in the spirit of jewellery watches, Dazzling Rendez-Vous Red showcases La Grande Maison’s uncompromising attention to detail. To highlight the impressive rubies that encircle the watch case, its master jewellers have opted for a prong setting, one of the most demanding of jewellery techniques. Requiring extreme precision, each of the 36 rubies is held in place by tiny gold spikes. The master gem-setters spend hours meticulously positioning the stones one by one, mounting them high, to minimise the presence of the metal and allow light to pass through the stones from all angles. This creates an impression that the rubies could almost be floating, and intensifies their crimson-red glow.

The row of 72 diamonds on the bezel is echoed by a ring of 47 smaller diamonds on the inner dial. Set between these diamond circles, the pink gold Floral numerals stand out in warm contrast to the iridescent white dial. Adding a final flourish, 12 diamonds are set in the lugs and a further diamond in the crown.

A circle of brilliant-cut diamonds completes the bezel and within it, gleaming like moonlight, is the silvery-white mother-of-pearl dial – a perfect foil for the Night & Day display. Visible through an opening at 6 o’clock, a golden crescent moon alternates with a shining sun, as night turns to day in an endless dance of time.

As with the dial and case, Jaeger-LeCoultre allows no compromise inside the watch. Visible through the transparent sapphire case-back, Calibre 898B/1 is a self-winding mechanical movement entirely developed and produced within the Jaeger-LeCoultre Manufacture.

This sumptuous timepiece is completed by a strap in ruby-red alligator leather with a subtly shiny finish, fastened with a pink gold pin buckle.
