Plaza Watch International - - Sihh Roundup -

At SIHH, Jaeger-LeCoul­tre shared its fas­ci­na­tion with the move­ments of the heav­enly bod­ies, which serve as ideal sources of in­spi­ra­tion for ex­press­ing its wide-rang­ing savoir-faire. Among its newly launched high com­pli­ca­tions ded­i­cated to the mea­sure­ment of astro­nom­i­cal time and its three moon-phase time­pieces, the Ren­dez-Vous Moon stands out as the brand is cur­rently ex­celling in the field of women’s watches. Five years ago, Jaeger-LeCoul­tre de­cided to ded­i­cate a larger part of its cre­ativ­ity to women and for­mally launched its new­est ladies’ col­lec­tion with day-night, ce­les­tial or tour­bil­lon func­tions, Ren­dez-Vous, and it has proven ex­tremely pop­u­lar. The Ren­dez-Vous is the first time the brand cre­ated a watch fam­ily just for women, as pre­vi­ously they had to choose from ladies’ mod­els of its men’s ranges. This iconic fem­i­nine line has al­ways show­cased se­ri­ous com­pli­ca­tions like a per­pet­ual cal­en­dar or tour­bil­lon, and last year, saw the brand’s first minute re­peater for women: the Ren­dez-Vous Ivy Minute Re­peater. Now the moon phase dom­i­nates the dial with a mother-of-pearl moon disc set within a deep blue sky re­veal­ing the con­stel­la­tions and sprin­kled with cabo­chon-cut di­a­monds rep­re­sent­ing the stars. Pow­ered by the new au­to­matic Jaeger-LeCoul­tre Cal­i­bre 935 with 43-hour power re­serve, the moon phase is de­signed to re­main ac­cu­rate for 972 years in­stead of the stan­dard one that shows a one-day de­vi­a­tion ev­ery two and a half years. In a 36mm or 39mm white gold case, the time­piece fea­tures two crowns: one for ad­just­ing the time and moon phase, the other for guid­ing the mov­ing star on the edge of the dial, which the wearer can set to a time of her choice to re­mind her of a se­cret ren­dezvous.
