Jaeger-LeCoultre celebrates the Art of Precision
The Maison shined the light on its 186-year history of watchmaking at London’s Royal Academy of Arts.
Jaeger-LeCoultre welcomed guests to a gala dinner in London this week in honour of the Art of Precision: a celebration of the Grand Maison’s long history of precise engineering and manufacturing in watchmaking. The evening took place at London’s Royal Academy, an independent institution that supports artists and architects and promotes visual arts through exhibitions, education and debate.
A highlight of the dinner was a Letters Live performance by notable friends of the Maison including Benedict Cumberbatch, Juliet Stevenson, Ellie Bamber and Clarke Peters. A philanthropic initiative, Letters Live promotes the power of literacy through influential artists performing live readings of historical letters with their own artistic interpretation.
As a part of the Art of Precision, Jaeger-LeCoultre reimagined the Rendez-Vous collection this year. Capturing the pure essence of femininity, the new collection shows a stunning richness of detail with elements that fully adhere to the codes of High Jewellery. More than ever, the new models of the Rendez-Vous collection are imbued with the spirit of fine watchmaking with precision in both action and design.
One of these pieces includes the Dazzling Rendez-Vous Night and Day, a watch that sets the stage for an all-new version of the iconic Night & Day function. Combining gold, mother-of-pearl and diamonds, this timeless model is sure to charm any sophisticated woman with a taste for jewellery watches.
Just as radiant, the new Dazzling Rendez-Vous Moon watch from Jaeger-LeCoultre features a new vision of moon phases to enhance the model with pure soul and femininity. With two rows of brilliant-cut diamonds flowing along the outline of the bezel and continuing to the heart of the mother-of-pearl dial, this timepiece is equal parts watchmaking and jewellery.
