The brand new Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Tourbillon for girls has a circular opening at 6 o’clock through that the constant movement of the rotating tourbillon cage is visible. Think of it as a window into a miniature masterpiece of horology in which dozens of components execute their complex dance, all in the service of precision. The encompassing dial is made from shimmering mother of pearl, punctuated by diamond and sapphire details and a bezel set with diamonds.But there’s more. Bathed in the light of both brilliant and baguette-cut diamonds, the dial is completely set with all these precious stones using different levels and varying angles of setting.To add even more glamour, the case of this Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Tourbillon Haute Joaillerie features 547 diamonds within an impressive 9 carats. The result is mesmerising and one which is designed to seduce even the most demanding of women.You understand what I’ve never seen? A calculator adorned and studded with diamonds. Or how about a solid gold hammer? We typically are not used to resources getting such lavish remedies. The idea nearly seems preposterous, but in regards to watches that the opulent mentality reigns — and we adore them for it. This is especially true in regards to tools such as the diving watch. Its rising popularity over formal timepieces stems from the durability and improved legibility. You may call the diver watch the most successful genre of timepiece to date. These kinds of timepieces are so popular, in fact, that girls often choose to wear them with outfits which would disintegrate if they got wet, though their watches are survive.
The gents’ version is powered with the hand-wound caliber 822 motion while the women’ model features the quartz caliber 657. The Reverso is an excellent illustration of the difference between fashion and style. An easy Reverso has no consideration of trends, rather it’s a product of design and style which successfully operates outside much of the ebb and flow of fashion.For their 117th anniversary, Raffles sourced 117 customized Longines watches and we think they’ve selected well for their 125th, not just with JLC, but especially with the Reverso. For a hotel to survive 125 years of recent human history, it has to have the ability to change and expand without loosing its soul along with the joie de vivre making it unique. While the engraving isn’t the most novel nor imaginative of layouts, it does make a simple connection between the life span of this hotel and the legacy of the Reverso. While decades of human history would suggest that good things often come to an end, we still possess the Raffles Hotel and we have watches like the Reverso.Celebrating its 180th year, Jaeger-LeCoultre, understood as one of the four ‘old ladies’ of horology and master of every complication is one of the best watchmakers of time. No surprise then, laden with high expectation, I set myself first in line to reassess the Reverso Lady watch.Even prior to exploring its reversible case or peeping beneath its well-endowed hood, the iconic Reverso Lady watch is striking enough using its culmination of art-deco inspired layout and soft neutral tones contrasts beautifully with cobalt blue accents. Aesthetically appealing, this ladies watch is both unobtrusive and daring leading to a accomplished modern classic.

After Jaeger-LeCoultre started the very first Rendez-Vous back in 2012, it made an announcement. Short of going down to one knee, red rose bouquet in hand and proposing undying love to the women of the planet, the 180-year-old Swiss watchmaker was clearly wooing the women. And that is because the Rendez-Vous is the very first set Jaeger-LeCoultre has made only for women.Of course in the past Jaeger-LeCoultre has offered versions created for the girls, using elaborate enamel decorations as well as miniature marvels, such as the diminutive bead bracelet watches which housed the famous 101 Calibre that the magnitude of a ladybird – as obscured by our very own Queen Elizabeth II. But before the coming of the round-faced Rendez-Vous, almost all Jaeger-LeCoultre women’s watches were variations of men’s versions. Think of this Reverso: originally a man’s opinion that soon found its way on to women’s wrists.And because its timely arrival, the Rendez-Vous watch has deftly found its place in the ranks of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s most prosperous timepieces. Despite its youth, its own sober lines, beautiful details and impeccable mechanics have made this, dare I say it, an instant classic. And now the Swiss watch home has gone one step further and shown exactly how committed it’s to offering the very finest in horology to girls with the advent of new Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Tourbillon models.But offering girls tourbillon-regulated moves that increase the precision and reliability of timekeeping is not enough. All these tourbillon movements are put in beautiful, feminine instances and topped off with fairly dials to match.

Jaeger-LeCoultre was one of the most talked about brands at SIHH this year, with the launch of the magnificent (and unexpected!) Sector dial additions to the Master Control collection. However, there was still another set updated this year you might have missed, the Rendez-Vous collection. The Rendez-Vous is distinguished by its own round case shape and was actually inspired by the Master Control. While the original notion of this Rendez-Vous was to offer you a round case alternative with much more “female” attributes, for example smaller dimensions and substances like diamonds and mother-of-pearl, the brand new Night & Day Big is a departure from that using its case measuring a solid 38.3mm compared to smaller Night & Day that measures 34mm. What exactly is there to learn about this watch besides the size? Well, it is available in steel or without a necklace and rose gold with diamonds and a ring. The silvered dial has a guilloché pattern radiating from the middle. The Arabic numerals are somewhat exaggerated, and this is habitual for its Rendez-Vous collection. You will find small diamond-set indicators, though they’re comparatively subtle and add only a little sparkle (notice: the ancient versions shot here in SIHH do not have these diamond indicators yet). The hands are a crisp blued steel and contrast well with the silvered dial.
