Dazzling is a particularly apt term to define this Rendez-Vous Dazzling Moon Lazura and all its predecessors. This Jaeger-LeCoultre dazzles with the brilliance of the precious stones that decorate its case, accentuated by the spectacular contrast they create with the blue of the dial.

The literal translation of the French term rendez-vous is “rendez-vous” and, in addition to the moon phase, this is the curious indication offered by the Rendez-Vous Dazzling Moon Lazura. It is an indication in the form of a star that we manually adjust to the time when we have an appointment, an event, etc.. It is an indication that unlike the alarm complication does not emit any sound, so it is limited to a simple visual reminder. This star is set by the second crown fitted to this watch.

Rendez-vous is also the term that gives its name to an extensive women’s collection from Jaeger-LeCoultre, but it can be confusing. A priori it is easy and logical to think that all watches in this collection bring us the indication of “date”, but this is a rule that surprisingly is not fulfilled. We only find this curious indication in some of the jewel-watches of this collection. For the others, the term Rendez-Vous implies more a stylistic concept than a functional one.

Both aesthetically and technically, we can mention as a predecessor of this Dazzling Moon Lazura the Rendez-Vous Moon Serenity that Jaeger-LeCoultre presented us in 2019 and to which we dedicate this article. The big difference between the two watches centers on the distribution and style of the diamond settings that adorn their cases.

In this area, the identifying sign of the Dazzling is the profuse setting of precious stones that adorn its bezel distributed in two rows. It is this sparkling decoration that gives meaning to the term Dazzling in its name.bre. In this case we are dealing with brilliant-cut diamonds, which as is characteristic of this series are distributed according to their dimensions; We find 36 large diamonds in the outer row, 76 in the inner row, 12 in the lugs and 2 as cabochon of the two crowns of this Rendez-Vous.

What is remarkable about this setting, which sets it apart from conventionalism, is its structure that forms a sort of cantilever that exceeds the diameter of the case. Apart from its undeniable aesthetic appeal, the benefit of this implementation is that it allows light to pass through the outer row with a consequent increase in brilliance, which is the raison d’être of a precious stone.

The case measures 36 millimeters in diameter and 10.76 millimeters thick. The material chosen to make it is pink gold, which increases if possible the spectacularity of this piece, but the differential factor with previous editions of this watch is found in the dial. It is the Lapis Lazuli that Jaeger-LeCoultre has chosen to make it.

Again, the characteristic blue of this semi-precious gem is spectacular, but what makes this stone so special are the golden pyrite shavings that are distributed over its surface and interior. The hypnotic effect that this produces makes even more sense in a sphere like the one in this Rendez-Vous, in which a celestial map is staged. Lapis lazuli gives us in a single material the blue of the sky and the bright stars that are distributed in it. But let’s not look for the impossible, as it would be that its distribution resembles the astral reality.
