Creating a sense of wonder is certainly the reason for being of any renowned jewellery brand whose back story is linked with the pursuit of excellence, a painstaking thoroughness and minute attention to detail.
Cinema, which is intimately bound up with the world of Jaeger-LeCoultre, is akin to the craft of watchmaking. Slowly, painstakingly, just as the master jeweller carefully selects each precious stone before skilfully setting it into the dial of a watch, actors and directors meticulously plan every detail of their films to breathe life into a gem that draws the spectator into its realm. A talent for precision, exceptional know-how, selecting the very best tools – these elements are as much a part of the filmmaker’s and actor’s art as the jeweller’s.
Rendez-Vous Secret is a masterpiece of jewellery and watchmaking craftsmanship, showcasing the brand’s miniaturisation skills, while reviving the aesthetics of a 1960’s Jaeger-LeCoultre heritage watch. Cloaked in stones tending towards the blue, this line illustrates the lively creative spirit that remains ever-fresh among the Jaeger-LeCoultre’s artisans.
Its slightly domed lid is adorned with diamonds of brilliant, baguette and marquise cut, in a setting with four different hues of brilliant-cut sapphires that depicts a flower set in ice.
The Reverso One Duetto Jewelry is highly feminine with its luminous gem-setting and graceful dial that draws inspiration from the earliest ladies’ Reverso models of the 1930s. .
With singular expertise, the Rendez-Vous Moon Medium’s moon phase stands out against an elongated dial with its textured finish. A carefully worked elliptical guilloché pattern adorns the dial’s heart, while its shimmering moon has a sand blasted finish.
The watches are available at Lucerne, Shangri-La Plaza Mall.
