It is almost the New Year and that means a host of celebrations, reflections and resolutions. So, women, just in case you were wondering what you should be wearing on your wrist to ring in the new year … we present three great high-jewelry watch options from Jaeger-LeCoultre.
It was earlier this year, during the Venice Film Festival, that Jaeger-Lecoultre first unveiled these newest watches, along with a special hand-painted piece in tribute to Scuola Gran d San Rocco, that you can read about here. Now, these stunning watches are available for sale and will attract all eyes to the wearer.
One of our favorites in the dazzling tribute to femininity is the Rendez-Vous Secret watch. Secret watches hold such a special meaning and date back to the days when women were supposed to be discreet about watching the time. The secret watch enabled them to show off the beauty of a piece of jewelry that only they knew also contained a watch. This new piece from Jaeger-LeCoultre is inspired by a Jaeger-LeCoultre model from the 1960s. The timepiece showcases the Maison’s great skills of dial working and gem setting. Like a flower with white and pink petals, the watch’s cover is abloom in marquise-cut diamonds, pink sapphires, and brilliant-cut rubies. Two rows of brilliant-cut diamonds make up the bracelet that gracefully fits around the wearer’s wrist. The cover gently opens to give a glimpse of the time on the dial, which is further decorated with ivy leaves. In total, the secret watch is set with more than 11 carats of diamonds and gemstones.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso One High Jewelry watch
Another of our favorites is the Reverso One High Jewelry watch. The Reverso is a legend in its own right and so bedecking it in baguette-cut invisibly set diamonds is a true tribute to the timepiece. The dial is surrounded by three rows of diamonds, reproducing the Reverso’s emblematic gadroons. The horns of the watch have two different finishes, giving rise to rays of light that accompany the turning of the case. The Duetto concept equips the watch with an alternate face on the reverse side. On a black aventurine dial, with a sprinkling of stardust scattered over its depths, diamonds trace out the perimeter of the hour and minute display, sparkling like rays of sunlight. The manually wound mechanical movement , Caliber 844, offers 38 hours of power reserve. Just 100 pieces are being made.
Third, and certainly not least, is the Rendez-Vous Moon watch. The white gold Rendez-Vous Moon is a work of technical mastery and elegance. The moon is revealed in a wide display at 6:00, while the center depicts a starry sky. The Grand Feu and paillonné enamel dial reveals thousands of stars and brilliant-cut diamonds light the bezel, lugs, and crowns. Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso One High Jewelry watch is powered by the automatic Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 935 with 49 hours of power reserve.
