The Rendez-Vous collection, first launched in 2012, was designed as a round watch for women seeking an alternative to the rectangular Reverso. Inspired by the Master Control, the Rendez-Vous is notable for its round case. Initially, it aimed to provide a more “feminine” option with smaller dimensions and luxurious materials like diamonds and mother-of-pearl. 

This model comes with a silvered dial featuring a guilloché pattern radiating from the centre. The Arabic numerals, characteristically exaggerated for the Rendez-Vous collection, stand out prominently. The bezel, decorated with diamond-set, adds a touch of sparkle. The crisp blued steel hands provide a striking contrast against the silvered dial.

The watch is driven by the calibre JLC 898D/1, an automatic movement that includes hours, minutes, centre seconds, and a night and day indication. Comprising 300 parts, the movement boasts a 38-hour power reserve. The night and day indication is positioned at six o’clock within a semi-circular aperture.

The sun, symbolizing daytime, features exaggerated squiggly rays, while the moon, representing nighttime, is depicted as a crescent with three small stars. The sun and moon are crafted from blued steel. While this complication isn’t strictly necessary, it enhances the elegance of this ladies’ watch, which is designed more for style than utility.

    So, how does it wear on the wrist? Very well. It looks clean, and if you have a small wrist, it will sit nicely. The dial is easy to read, and the contrasting textures between the centre and the outer chapter ring add a nice touch to this piece.
