Unveiled in conjunction with the recent Shanghai International Film Festival 2018, the new Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Night & Day Medium Tribute to Cinema is a limited-edition timepiece that’s ready to dazzle even on a red carpet occasion.

This special sees Jaeger-LeCoultre pay homage to the glamorous world of cinema and its attendant celebrity. Fitted with the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 898A/1, the piece reveals a day/night indicator against a new backdrop. The Moon, which traditionally features on the models of this line, gives way to a five-pointed star.

The Rendez-Vous Night & Day boldly showcases crimson red on both its iconic function disc at 6 o’clock and on its glistening alligator-leather strap. That motif continues on the winding crown in the guise of a garnet cabochon as red as a film star’s lips.

As eye-catching is the bezel that’s set with brilliant-cut diamonds which simultaneously underscore the finely guilloché-adorned face of this sublimely feminine timepiece.

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Night & Day was unveiled at the festival’s presentation ceremony of the now famous “Glory to the Filmmaker” trophy, an award that recognises the exemplary creative talents of past and present film figures who endeavour to advance and promote cinema.

These exquisite timepieces will be made available exclusively through select Jaeger-LeCoultre boutiques.
