As far as Christmas gifts go, jewelry is a sound choice. But handing over a velvet box for the nth consecutive year is just plain predictable. If you want to bring back that much-needed element of surprise, take a look at Jaeger-LeCoultre's latest women's watch.
With The Art of Precision as its theme, Jaeger-LeCoultre's new Rendez-Vous collection focuses on action, design, and other elements that go hand in hand with high jewelry. You'll find an elegant reimagining of the prong setting, moon phase, diamonds, and mother-of-pearl here.
Out of the many exceptional timepieces in the collection, it's the Dazzling Rendez-vous Night & Day that stands out. The claw-gem setting, which debuted in this collection, draws you to the timepiece by giving the bezel the brilliant sparkle of diamonds. It takes Jaeger-LeCoultre's master jewelers hours upon hours to perfect the technique, which maximizes each diamond's radiance and shine.
The timepiece is even made more exceptional with mother-of-pearl and even more diamonds on the dial. There are a total of 108 diamonds on the bezel, 47 smaller diamonds inside the dial, and 12 diamonds on the lugs. A generous 36mm case accommodates and balances it all out. The two jewelry watches are available in white or pink gold and paired with blue or taupe alligator leather straps.
Jaeger-LeCoultre is located in Greenbelt 5, Ayala Center, Makati.
