Jaeger‑lecoultre Launches Three Limited Edition Rendez-vous Watches To Celebrate The 74th Venice International Film Festival

To commemorate the 74th Venice International Film Festival, Jaeger-LeCoultre, which has been working with the film festival for more than 12 years, is pleased to present you an exclusive art version of the Rendez-Vous dating watch. Since its release in 2012, the Rendez-Vous dating watch has always been closely linked to the film world. This year is no exception. The romantic Republic of San Marino (the most peaceful republic in history) is the perfect backdrop for this collection of ladies’ watches. The latest masterpiece from the Grande Maison’s Métiers Rares, the Rendez-Vous date collection Sonatina watch expresses three different stages of romantic feelings: seduction, romance and love. Each is a limited edition, with only eight being released.

Demonstrate Jaeger‑LeCoultre’s expertise in a poetic way
   In order to create these three limited editions, the Grand Workshop brings together all of the brand’s most representative expertise, giving watchmakers and rare craftsmen the freedom of creativity.
   Grand Workshop’s latest edition of women’s watches, the rose gold Rendez Vous dating collection Sonatina Large is a fusion of intricate designs created for hopeless dreamers. After the design is adjusted, the winding crown position is set at 2 o’clock, and a star-shaped hand is designed to set the date for future appointments. A melodious and prompt music will sound soon. Does it symbolize the next date with a lover? This appointment reminder is like a whisperer in your ear, and it comes with another sophisticated design, the day / night pointer. The hand is located in the aperture at 6 o’clock, shaped like a flower drawn on the dial. As the sun and the moon alternately appear, a non-stop dance is performed, evoking your romantic fantasy in the interweaving of day and night.
   These complex feminine designs are characteristic of the Jaeger‑LeCoultre 735 Calibre with self-winding function, and the perfect match for this large 38.2 mm diameter Rendez-Vous watch.

Magnificence of Rare Crafts (Métiers Rares)
   The ingenuity of the watchmakers of Jaeger‑LeCoultre is harmoniously combined with the amazing skills of rare craftsmen. The birth of these works requires at least three techniques: inlaying, painting on mother-of-pearl, and inlaying stones.
   The mother-of-pearl dial is decorated with hands with a guilloché pattern, which extends over the entire surface, and the outer layer is covered with light lacquer, exuding an elegant light. For the first time, the craftsmen of the Great Workshop adopted the design method of hand-painted mini patterns on mother of pearl. The paintings are subtle and subtle, with amazing beauty, all details come to life and come alive. Some of the patterns in the painting, such as bird figures, are covered with a layer of transparent lacquer to create a sense of depth and depth that complements the texture of the mother-of-pearl. The artistic inspiration born of artisans, each stroke is injected with a new vitality, and each rare craft dial is a miniature artwork with unique personality. Therefore, although all eight pieces belong to the same series, each dial is unique. The artist’s handmade works have attracted countless praises.
   At the same time, the master artisan of stone setting makes each piece more valuable through precious gems. The bezel is embellished with brightly cut diamonds, making the entire dial poetic. A row of timeless stones embellishes the edges of the numerals on the dial of the classic Rendez-Vous date watch, and complements a string of delicate stones patterned around the center of the dial. In order to perfectly decorate this real watch treasure, gem-setters also set diamonds on each side of the case. This delicate extra embellishment makes this watch fantastic from every angle.

Tribute to different stages of love
   Each of the patterns embellished on these watches is original by Jaeger‑LeCoultre. The first stage of romance is demonstrated by the Rendez-Vous dating series Sonatina ‘Séduction’. The two flying swallows dancing on the lavender field represent this moment. This is a moment of mutual discovery and warming up. Couples gradually understand each other at this stage, and this is also the central theme that often appears in most movie works. . Birds symbolize freedom and happiness. They are like performing a romantic ballet, passing gracefully through a sky with a mother-of-pearl background. Mother of pearl is embellished with hazy shades of blue and purple. The artists carefully painted every detail of the birds, and they showed amazing talent in depicting the feathers on their wings. The flower-shaped aperture on the day / night pointer emerges from the deep purple-blue plant center, as if a window opened for lovers who fall in love, foreshadowing the rush of time.
   After the temptation is a romantic time, the heart is full of images of loved ones. The Rendez-Vous dating series Sonatina ‘Romance’ paints an endless picture: a kingfisher perched on a blooming cherry tree. The kingfisher seems to have forgotten the passing of time, and its blue and orange feathers symbolize peace and prosperity. This picture is connected to important moments in life, such as romantic encounters, and the blooming cherry trees are gorgeously reproduced in pink and white gradient shadows. The delicate pink paint layer on the mother-of-pearl mother-of-pearl further enhances the vivid color of the petals.
   The Rendez-Vous dating collection Sonatina “Amour” is the last watch in the limited edition collection, depicting the eternal happiness of love. Over a peony flower, two magpies flew together, using a gradient background from turquoise to sea green. These birds are a symbol of happiness, as if enjoying the joy of traveling. Peony is often associated with wealth and glory, and it also reflects romantic feelings, and peony also brings good fortune, indicating a happy marriage. Harmonious green blends subtly on the dial, adding a touch of tenderness to this poetic watch.
   These wonderful and sophisticated latest works showcase the superb skills of Jaeger‑LeCoultre artisans and their mastery in the art and technology of “rare craftsmanship”. They will surely remind every woman wearing a Rendez-Vous dating watch series of the power of love, and play a star role in her life, and the beautiful jewelry that decorates her wrists will also enrich her feelings.
