Ren­dez-Vous Ivy Minute Re­peater

ZbBZ (Singapore) - - 好时光 WATCH OUT -

Ren­dez-Vous Ivy Minute Re­peater is the first minute re­peater in Jaeger-LeCoul­tre’s fem­i­nine Ren­dez-Vous col­lec­tion. Its many achieve­ments ex­plain why it took 10 years of de­vel­op­ment to pro­duce, start­ing with the new Cal­i­bre 942A, an ex­tremely ac­cu­rate au­to­matic move­ment that beats at a ca­dence of 28,800 vi­bra­tions per hour and has a 43-hour power re­serve. The watch is fit­ted with two patented tre­buchet ham­mers which strike two crys­tal gongs con­nected to the sap­phire crys­tal harder and just once, pro­duc­ing a loud­speaker ef­fect. A ma­jor im­prove­ment on clas­sic minute re­peaters is that this model is equipped with a se­cu­rity sys­tem which en­sures that even if the push but­ton is pressed again while the minute re­peater is al­ready in ac­tion, the mech­a­nism does not start work­ing again. This pre­vents any dam­age to the move­ment.
