Gem-Set Moon

Jaeger-LeCoultre unveils a dazzling new version of the Rendez-Vous Moon.

Recognised for their affair with the celestial night skies over the Vallee de Joux, Jaeger-LeCoultre introduces their latest interpretation of the moonphase complication with the new gem-set version of the Rendez-Vous Moon timepiece.

The Dazzling Rendez-Vous Moon comes with a bezel comprising of 108 diamonds which form two concentric circles around the pink gold case of the 36mm piece. The stones have been set in place using the same jewellery technique which was employed by the brand for the Model 101 in the 1920's. The 'griffes' or the 'claws' hold the outer ring of 36 stones in place in an almost levitated stance giving the impression that they are floating around the case. The case is completed with the addition of diamonds to the lugs and the winding crown.

The mother-of-pearl dial features diamonds as the hour markers on the outer ring and pink gold numerals on the main hours ring which are anchored by the inner circle of 47 diamonds. The moon phase complication is displayed at the 6 o'clock against an aventurine night sky. This complication is powered by the self-winding mechanical calibre 925/A1 and provides a power reserve of 38 hours.

The transparent sapphire caseback reveals blued screws, circular graining and the classic Cotes de Geneve decoration along with the pink gold signature winding rotor .
