The Rendez-Vous Dazzling Night & Day, which captures the essence of femininity, has been reimagined in green this year as a tribute to the unspoiled nature that surrounds Jaeger-LeCoultre’s home in the Vallée de Joux and serves as a constant source of inspiration.
Just as the cosmic cycles inspired our watchmakers to develop a mechanism that displays night and day on the dial, the fields and forests of our valley inspire the designers and artisans of our Manufacture.

Presented in pink gold with a glowing green sunray-brushed dial and matching green alligator leather strap, this new rendition of the Rendez-Vous Dazzling Night & Day deftly marries the spirit of fine watchmaking with the codes of high jewellery. The radiance of 168 diamonds draws the eye to the rich colour of the dial.
On the bezel, 108 diamonds form two concentric rings around the case. A classical jewellery technique that requires great precision, claw settings are designed to maximise the presence of each stone by allowing light to pass through the diamonds from every angle while minimising the visible metal.
The fine gold claws hold the diamonds high, giving the impression that they are floating around the watch case rather than anchored to it. Completing the case, an inverted diamond is set into the winding crown, and three diamonds are set on each of the four lugs.
An inner circle of 47 diamonds draws the eye to the Night & Day indication on the dial. Set on a disc that rotates every 24 hours, a pink gold crescent moon with a backdrop of stars slowly alternates with a polished golden sun as night turns to day.
The Rendez-Vous Dazzling signature elements add even more refinement: hours are marked by applied Arabic numerals in the emblematic Floral style and polished golden hemispheres.
Calibre 898, housed within the 36mm case, is a self-winding mechanical movement developed and produced entirely in-house, with a power reserve of 38 hours. The transparent sapphire caseback reveals some fine decoration and finishing in classical watchmaking style: blued screws, circular graining on the wheels, Côtes de Genève on the plates, and an open-worked pink gold winding rotor.
With its glowing green dial, the new Rendez-Vous Dazzling Night & Day is a visually arresting expression of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s dedication to precision and creativity in both the mechanical aspect of watchmaking and the decorative arts.
