Founded in a small Swiss workshop in the heart of the Vallée de Joux in 1833, Jaeger-LeCoultre was one of the first watchmakers to offer timepieces for ladies. In the 1880’s, the LeCoultre Calibre 7Hp – which featured a small diameter and diamond adornments – became hugely popular among ladies, who would wear them around their neck.
Fast forward 130 years and Jaeger-LeCoultre are still devoting special attention to ladies’ watches, having recently added the exceptional Rendez-Vous Night & Day collection to their estimable range. The Art Deco-inspired collection is powered by a new self-winding mechanical movement developed entirely in-house, which can be seen in all its glory through a sapphire exhibition caseback. It is available in steel or rose gold variations, and with 29mm or 34mm case sizes. Each model also features a superb diamond-set bezel, and there are a number of fine leather strap options.
