Earlier this year, Swiss watch brand Jaeger-LeCoultre disclosed its most up to date assortment of Rendez-Vous watches, including the Rendez-Vous Moon Medium watch. The 34mm watch immediately caught the hearts of ladies around the globe on account of its stylish plan, unpredictable dial, sentimental moon-stage complication and specialized ability. Today, we give this watch some wrist-time and see why it has some incredible appeal.
In truth, since Jaeger-LeCoultre initially uncovered its “made for women” Rendez-Vous line in May of 2012, it has not been hesitant to bring to the table complications and significant capacities. Situating the line as an attractive and charming, yet likewise rich and in fact progressed, Jaeger-LeCoultre dispatched the arrangement five years prior with a 29mm and a 34mm Night/Day model with 214-section mechanical development. From that point forward, Rendez-Vous has had complications including retrograde signs, and even tourbillons.
Now, with the new medium-sized – 34mm – Moon form, the brand brings a special moon and sun plate to the six o’clock position on the dial. While there are numerous adaptations of this new watch – in tempered steel and in gold, with metal arm bands or crocodile ties going from become flushed to red, blue, dark and different tints – I as of late picked to acquire the Reference Q3572420 Rendez-Vous Moon Medium in 18k pink gold.
Reference Q3572420, with redden lash, charming white dial and gold sun/moon complements is a dream of apparent magnificence. I see a ton of watches, and a ton of watch ties, however the shade of this become flushed tie, alongside the totally estimated gator blocks, sits delightfully on the wrist – nearly mixing in for a naked appeal.
The watch includes a bezel set with precious stones. Presently commonly, I am not a major jewel watch individual since I think precious stones dress the watch up all in all too much; be that as it may, the jewels work wonderfully and I wound up wearing this watch from day to night to end of the week without an idea. Making the watch significantly more alluring is the way that it includes a compatible tie framework so the lash, with collapsing clasp, can be changed out effectively by the wearer without the requirement for apparatuses. Notwithstanding lashes, the watch is accessible with a metal arm band that offers a cool, fresh, current feel to the piece.
The dial is the genuine plan fascination of this watch. The silvered dial includes a guilloche and grained theme that offers profundity and measurement at any point. Moreover, it is a multi-layer dial, with the most minimal layer lodging the enormous round sun and moon plate, the subsequent layer being the middle dial and the top layer being the external number ring, and internal section ring. The moon sign circle is huge – considering a striking sun theme during day and an all out granular completed gold moon during night. The hour, moment and seconds hand are all blued.
If the plan of the watch doesn’t wow you – and I can’t envision why it wouldn’t – the specialized subtleties ought to. The watch is fueled by a programmed mechanical development, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Caliber 935A, that is completely enhanced and gathered by hand in the brand’s Le Sentier workshops. The 265-section development, with 41 gems, beats at 28,800 vibrations each hour and offers 40 hours of force hold. The watch is water impervious to 3 bar. Most awesome aspect all, the 18-karat gold form I acquired retails for a good comparatively estimated at EUR 23,600 while the steel rendition with blue accents comes for EUR 15,300.
