Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Sonatina: Summer Delight

25.06.2019

The most delicate orchids and butterflies inhabit the dials of this three exquisite pieces by Swiss manufacture.


The dials are decorated with a wavy guilloché motif that enhances the tonal variations of the mother-of-pearl, then a delicate tint of pink, green or purple is added. The pink gold case measures 38.2 mm in diameter and along with the bezel is adorned with diamonds. Three pink gold hands indicate the hours, minutes and seconds, and an oval-shaped ring of diamonds draws the eye to the painted image where the night and day indicator is visible. To complete the glamorous look, an alligator leather strap, matched to the dial colour, is fastened to the wrist by a pink gold buckle.


Set on the edge of the dial, a gold star marks the time of a special rendezvous (hence the name of the watch), moved into position by a second crown. When the time comes, the watch releases a single, melodious chime to remind the owner of the forthcoming event, therefore fulfilling a function of alarm. The in-house self-winding calibre 735 was specially developed for the Sonatina and can be admired through the transparent sapphire caseback. Each of the three variations will be produced in a limited edition of eight pieces.
