Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez vous Tourbillon

A Rendezvous between fine Watchmaking and High Jewellery

New models are joining the elegant and timeless Rendez-Vous collection to present another communion between fine watchmaking and high jewellery. These iconic pieces exhibit Jaeger-LeCoultre’s watchmaking expertise and showcase its characteristic Rare Handcrafts “Métiers Rares®” such as guillochage, gem-setting and decorative arts. This exceptional collection is made for women from around the globe who choose to make every hour of the day and night a rare and precious moment.

An iconic complication lavishly adorned with gold and diamonds

Once again, the new Rendez-Vous Tourbillon casts a spell on dynamic women who love to surround themselves with refined pieces that glitter with understated confidence. At 6 o’clock, the tourbillon reveals its spectacularly complex system of predominantly hand-decorated gears. Seemingly suspended in mid-air, its balance wheel oscillates within the carriage to perform one revolution every 60 seconds, setting the beat of its high-precision automatic movement, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 978.

Showcasing centuries of watchmaking expertise

The tourbillon needs no introduction. Yet on each and every new interpretation designed by the engineers and artisans of the Grande Maison, this watch complication offers a captivating, almost hypnotic spectacle. The halo of brilliant-cut diamonds glittering on the bezel add to this sensation, mirrored on a smaller scale in the centre of the dial and around the tourbillon. Its adornment expresses the noble heritage of Rare Handcrafts “Métiers Rares®” executed by generations of artisans under the roof of the manufactory. They include the 215 hand-set diamonds, which require many hours of attention within the Rare Handcrafts “Métiers Rares®” workshop.

With the pink gold models embellished with the shimmering iridescence of mother-of-pearl, a delicate, almost vibrant femininity radiates from the central dial of the new Rendez-Vous Tourbillon. Its precious materials transform the watch into a piece of jewellery – one which glistens on the wrist and marks out the enchanted passing of time.

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Manufacture

We were born in La Vallée de Joux in the Swiss mountains in 1833. Since day one, each watch, from the calibre to the case, is designed, made and assembled in our Manufacture by our master watchmakers. It demands inventiveness, determination, hard work and courage. How long it takes is irrelevant. What matters is how long it will last. This is the maker spirit.
