A new addition to the collection this year, the Dazzling Rendez-Vous stands out for its precious stones in a prong setting. This Red version is perfect for a long, hot summer.

In addition to the Dazzling Rendez-Vous Night & Day (available in white gold or in pink gold) and the Dazzling Rendez-Vous Moon (in white gold) launched at SIHH, Jaeger-LeCoultre is delighted to present the new Dazzling Rendez-Vous Red, launched at the occasion of the 22nd Shanghai International Film Festival. With Dazzling Rendez-Vous Red, Jaeger-LeCoultre presents its emblematic Night & Day function in a radiant new setting that combines pink gold, white mother-of-pearl, white diamonds and the rich glow of rubies.

To highlight the impressive rubies that encircle the watch case, its master jewellers have opted for a prong setting, one of the most demanding of jewellery techniques. Requiring extreme precision, each of the 36 rubies is held in place by tiny gold spikes. The master gem-setters spend hours meticulously positioning the stones one by one, mounting them high, to minimise the presence of the metal and allow light to pass through the stones from all angles. A circle of brilliant-cut diamonds completes the bezel and within it, gleaming like moonlight, is the silvery-white mother-of-pearl dial – a perfect foil for the Night & Day display. Visible through an opening at 6 o’clock, a golden crescent moon alternates with a shining sun, as night turns to day in an endless dance of time.

The row of 72 diamonds on the bezel is echoed by a ring of 47 smaller diamonds on the inner dial. Set between these diamond circles, the pink gold Floral numerals stand out in warm contrast to the iridescent white dial. Adding a final flourish, 12 diamonds are set in the lugs and a further diamond in the crown.
