Jaeger-LeCoultre presents a radiant, fully gem-set Dazzling Rendez-Vous Moon August 20, 2019 Jewelry 32 Throughout history, watchmakers have explored astronomical phenomena, harnessing their technical skills to express the movements of the moon and stars in mechanical form. Indeed, the origins of time measurement itself lie in mankind’s ability to understand the rhythm of the cosmos. For Jaeger-LeCoultre, the moon and stars have a special resonance, due to the exceptional clarity of the night sky above its home in Switzerland’s Vallée de Joux, and this year its watchmakers and artistic craftsmen return to the celestial theme. To coincide with the 76th Venice International Film Festival – La Biennale di Venezia, La Grande Maison presents a dazzling new interpretation of that most beloved of astronomical complications, the moon phase. Dazzling Rendez-Vous Moon pays tribute to feminine strength and beauty, presenting La Grande Maison’s emblematic moon phase function in a magnificent new setting, perfect for a romantic and lovely moon phase display. Echoing the serene beauty of the night sky, the icy sparkle of diamonds is warmed by pink gold and complemented by glowing white mother of pearl.
