RENDEZ-VOUS SONATINA
RENDEZ-VOUS SONATINA DEDICATED TO PEACEFUL NATURE

Jaeger-LeCoultre is delighted to present three exquisite variations of Rendez-Vous Sonatina celebrating “Peaceful Nature”, each offered in a limited edition of eight pieces. These supremely elegant timepieces embody three distinct expressions of refined and delicate femininity.

Testament to the rare talent of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s craftsmen, they unite the codes of fine watchmaking and the delicacy of Métiers RaresTM (Rare Handcrafts), celebrating the Art of Precision in both technical execution and aesthetic expression.

RENDEZ-VOUS SONATINA

Orchids: a symbol of beauty, grace and charm, cultivated and appreciated in China for more than 3,000 years. Butterflies: believed to represent metamorphosis, hope and life itself – their almost weightless fluttering evoking a sense of lightness and joy.

Elegant yet delicate, fragile yet strong, orchids and butterflies unite on the dials of this new edition of the Rendez-Vous Sonatina, expressing the most enchanting facets of the feminine character.

RENDEZ-VOUS SONATINA

Giving full rein to the skill of the Maison’s artisans, these new timepieces call on three of the Métiers RaresTM (Rare Handcrafts) that Jaeger-LeCoultre has so thoroughly mastered: guillochage, micro- painting on mother-of-pearl, and gem-setting.

The dials are engraved with a wavy guilloché motif that enhances the tonal variations of the mother-of- pearl, then a delicate tint of pink, green or purple is added. Onto this gleaming background the exquisite composition of orchids and butterflies is brought to life by the artisan, one tiny brushstroke at a time. Lifelike in their detail, with a remarkable sense of visual depth, each of these miniature works of art is subtly different, imbued with the artisan’s personality and passion. A fine oval-shaped ring of diamonds draws the eye to the painted image where, set among the blooms, in a free-form, flower-shaped aperture, the Night & Day indicator is visible.

RENDEZ-VOUS SONATINA

Set on the edge of the dial, a delicate gold star marks the time of a special rendezvous, moved into position by a second crown. When the time comes, the watch releases a single, melodious chime to remind the owner of her appointment.

This poetic and whimsical expression of femininity is brought to life by the technical sophistication of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Manufacture Calibre 735, a self-winding movement developed specially for the Sonatina, which is displayed beneath the transparent sapphire case-back.

RENDEZ-VOUS SONATINA

To complete these watchmaking treasures, an alligator leather strap, matched to the dial colour and given a glowing, shiny finish, is fastened to the wrist by a pink gold buckle.

Conceived as a joyful expression of femininity, these special editions of Rendez-Vous Sonatina are limited to eight examples of each variation, and are available exclusively from Jaeger-LeCoultre boutiques.

RENDEZ-VOUS SONATINA

Light up your extravagance

Serial innovator Roger Dubuis is a firm believer in living larger than life. The intrepid spirit and unleashed creativity embedded in its DNA repeatedly impels it to explore uncharted territories in multiple areas of aesthetic and technical research. The inevitable result of this no-holds-barred approach is a unique form of hyper horology expressed through daring timepieces.

Raising the mechanical to art form status

Roger Dubuis thus instinctively and organically creates models designed for an exclusive tribe composed of those unafraid to stand out from the crowd. The kind of non-conformist visionaries looking for unique and aesthetically pleasing designs matched by a high degree of technical sophistication. It is with them in mind that the Maison is now presenting the Excalibur Blacklight Trilogy.

Light up your extravagance

This singular new model features a particularly artistic new version of the iconic RD820SQ calibre, featuring a decor made possible by a technology used for the first time in the Haute Horlogerie industry. The fully integrated nature of the Manufacture Roger Dubuis indeed provides an exceptional capacity to cultivate beauty and an unparalleled flair for detail. The calibre takes on a whole new dimension by offering a mix of materials to display a unique and contemporary design. The outcome is a full-fledged mechanical objet d’art brimming with significant emotional content.

Light up your extravagance

A unique glow

Within this fascinating construction, the signature Roger Dubuis ‘Astral Skeleton’ movement presents an innovative technology using micro-structures made of lab-grown sapphire identical to that used in watchmaking jewels. The aesthetic and creative dimension – which Roger Dubuis likes to refer to as ‘expressive singularity’ – displayed throughout the calibre gives the impression of a veritable 3D mechanical sculpture. A sensation reinforced by the inherent ability to glow under UV light, revealing the motif as it were floating in the case at night. In a final flourish of technology-enabled the skilled artisans of the Roger Dubuis ateliers allow the diamond at the centre of the Astral Skeleton to stand out in solitary splendour. This strategic effect further reinforces its taut lines and impressive visual depth generating multiple levels and angles.

Light up your extravagance

The 42 mm Blacklight Trilogy comes in a 28-piece pink gold limited edition, accompanied by an 88-piece blue version with a white gold case and black alternative in DLC titanium. While all bear the prestigious Poinçon de Genève, the pink gold limited edition is the only iteration to be released as a boutique exclusive.

Light up your extravagance

 

A decidedly 21st century opportunity for fans of the Maison to glow in the dark, as serial innovator Roger Dubuis once again vanquishes the blackness of the unknown in a shower of extravagant light

The Marine by Breguet embodies a desire to travel the seas, and be carried by the winds and currents. Breguet dedicates this collection to modern-day women explorers.

Leaning on a wealth of watchmaking know-how, the House of Breguet unveils the Marine watch collection for women, inspired by our oceans. As a specialist in guillochage (or engineturning), Breguet has designed an original motif that reflects the flow of waves on the dial. The second hand, as one of several details echoing the marine world, is decorated with a maritime flag representing the initial of Breguet.

True to Breguet’s tradition, this collection combines refinement with technical performance. This watch beats to the rhythm of the self-winding 591A caliber, a manufacture movement 3.41 millimeters thick with a date display. The Marine will fit even the finest of wrists: flexible strap fasteners extend from the case with a diameter of less than 34 millimeters.

Available in steel as well as rose or white gold, the Marine also features precious variations, with the bezel ringed and illuminated by diamonds. For the gold models, the diamond setting is continued on the bevel of the rotor and the crown protection, bringing the total to 1.26 carats. Depending on the variant, the Marine dial is adorned with an ocean-blue lacquer with light reflections, or with polished or engine-turned mother-of-pearl.

A Craft Inspired by the Sea

The engine-turning artisans of the House of Breguet have created a unique design evoking the sea as it laps the shore. This pattern, called marea, or tide, incorporates curves; in contrast to the classic guillochage, which consists of straight lines and circles, the curves in this design capture the natural movement of the water. The development of the marea pattern took several months, including the manufacture of special cams for the engine-turning lathes. The
artisans of the House of Breguet have made this demanding design come alive on motherof-pearl, a particularly fragile material, which graces the dial and rotor of the movement for this collection.

Nautical Aesthetics

The new Breguet Marine collection for women is a celebration of the marine world in many aspects. The Roman numerals resemble nautical pennants. For use at night, the open tips of the hands, the five-minute markings, and the hour markers are coated with luminescent material.

The sapphire-crystal caseback shows the self-winding 591A caliber and its bars decorated with double engine-turned côtes de Genève calling to mind a ship’s deck boards. The words Horloger de la Marine (Chronograph-maker to the Navy) are engraved on the rim of the case, referring to the title of Chronometer-maker to the French Royal Navy bestowed upon Abraham-Louis Breguet in 1815.

Breguet has also reworked the flutes on the sides of the case. This new design, more distinct and spaced, lends the watch – barely one centimeter thick – a more daring look. The crown protection, diamond-set on gold pieces, appears like a wave at 3 o’clock. Screws in the shape of navigational markers provide a flexible hold for the strap fasteners.

Another motif – on the white rubber strap – created for the collection involves seagrass arabesques. This plant is known to be found on the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea, and to help keep the water clean. This strap, for a sportier lifestyle look, is available alongside alligator leather straps in midnight blue or white, depending on the model. A sapphire cap marked with the letter ‘B’ for Breguet adorns the clasp of the folding buckle.

Beauties of the Sea

Marine Dame 9518 Diamond-Set in Rose or White Gold

The Marine is available set in white or rose gold, with dials enlivened by engine-turned mother-of-pearl in the marea style. The white-gold version is adorned with pale-blue motherof-pearl, while the rose-gold variant features opaline mother-of-pearl. Depending on the model, the rotor is decorated with engine-turned mother-of-pearl of the same color, and also inlaid. The bezel is illuminated by a setting of 50 brilliant-cut diamonds. Their sparkle extends to the strap fastenings and the crown protection.

Marine Dame 9517 in Steel and Marine Dame 9518 in Diamond-Set Steel

The House of Breguet also offers the Marine in steel and inlaid steel. The dials of these models are done in natural opaline mother-of-pearl or marbled blue lacquer, animated by clearer volutes reminiscent of the white-horses of the sea – or a starlit night sky, which was used for navigation in former times. To achieve this decor, the artisan applies a clear lacquer on the still liquid azure material. When they come into contact, the colors marbleize and create a unique image, thus rendering each piece exclusive. Visible by the sapphire-crystal caseback, the rotor bears the engine-turned marea motif in mother-of-pearl – in azure or white, depending on the shade of the dial. The bezel of the inlaid-steel variant is enlivened by 60 brilliant-cut diamonds.

As early as in the 18th century, Abraham-Louis Breguet created watches for daring women. Today, dedicated to the modern adventurer, the Marine by Breguet evokes an exhilarating sense of adventure at sea.

Orion 33 duo watch

The wedding bells are ringing and everyone—the birds, the bees, your readers, and us—are in love, or wish they were. There must be something in the air at this time of year!

That’s why we want to celebrate with you, and we have the perfect watches to suit the occasion. Here they are:

For love birds: the new duo series 

Four classics (Tangente, Orion, Ludwig, Tetra) in a smaller size, without a sub-seconds dial—after all, you have all the time in the world when you’re in love. These four watches are visually more delicate and combine silver and gold in a refined, Bauhaus-inspired way (which means that they look great with jewelry). They are also accessibly priced, leaving more in the budget for date night. Learn more about the duo series here.

For those who tick together: watches for the happy couple

Instead of rings—or perhaps along with them (since they will look effortlessly elegant together), we have watch models with their own characters that still look great together. Well-matched couples, in other words! Get inspired by some beautiful pairings here.

For now and forever: watches with a love note

All NOMOS watches with a stainless steel back have space for a small love message, a big “thank you” or some words of wisdom. Up to four lines of 22 characters each can be engraved for posterity by NOMOS in Glashütte. And our engraving tool makes drafting a personalized message fun—just try it out!

For the love of learning: time for graduates and academic achievers

Is your high school sweetheart moving away for college? Has your first long-term love found a master’s program at a different university? NOMOS watches may not be easy to finance on a student budget. But they are something special: handcrafted timepieces for life. The Campus series, designed with graduates in mind, comes with a complimentary engraving and a particularly accessible price. With it, NOMOS Glashütte is making its contribution towards education—and love, of course!

Needless to say, NOMOS Glashütte also has plenty of timepieces for contented singletons and all those in less conventional relationships. So whichever topics you have lined up, we will have watches, images, and further information to suit.

Naomi Campbell
IT’S ALL ABOUT SECONDS

Everything has always been about seconds for a House created by a woman who knew how to follow her instincts. The instinct of the moment when everything is decided.

Whether it is the longest second of a lifetime on the day of an important decision or preparing a soft-boiled egg with perfect culinary precision, catching an airplane or missing a taxi, our existence is a succession of milestones that are of no coincidence.

The New J12 – NAOMI CAMPBELL is the watch for these milestones and the perfect accompaniment for every second. In this campaign for the most iconic CHANEL watch, nine iconic women share their personal experiences about a second that changed their lives.

Everything is a story of seconds for a woman who is in touch with her life and with this intimate timepiece that can shape destiny in a few seconds. The new J12 Watch is for this woman.

BIOGRAPHY OF NAOMI CAMPBELL

“Every action that I’ve committed myself to is a decisive second.”

Naomi Campbell made her first on-screen appearance at the age of seven when she was featured in the music video for Is this love? by Bob Marley. As the daughter of a ballet dancer, she decided to follow in her mother’s footsteps and studied the art of ballet at the Italia Conti Academy and the Stage School in London. Yet her life changed course completely at age 15 when the director of a modeling agency spotted in her in the street.

Just a few weeks later, she appeared for the first time on the cover of a magazine, none other than British Elle. Her career as a top model then skyrocketed, boasting more than 800 magazine covers to date.

The New J12 - Vanessa Paradis
IT’S ALL ABOUT SECONDS

Everything has always been about seconds for a House created by a woman who knew how to follow her instincts. The instinct of the moment when everything is decided.

Whether it is the longest second of a lifetime on the day of an important decision, or preparing a soft-boiled egg with perfect culinary precision, catching an airplane or missing a taxi, our existence is a succession of milestones that are of no coincidence.

The New J12 – Vanessa Paradis is the watch for these milestones, and the perfect accompaniment for every second. In this campaign for the most iconic CHANEL watch, nine iconic women share their personal experiences about a second that changed their lives.

Everything is a story of seconds for a woman who is in touch with her life and with this intimate timepiece that can shape destiny in a few seconds. The new J12 is the watch for this woman.

BIOGRAPHY OF VANESSA PARADIS

“A decisive second is when you fall in love.”

Vanessa Paradis was only 14 when she made her sensational debut in the world of music with her single Joe le Taxi which topped the charts in 1987.

This was the start of a rich musical career consisting of seven albums (M et J, Variations sur le même t’aime, Vanessa Paradis, Bliss, Divine idylle, Love Songs, Les sources), countless Victoires de la Musique awards, and a series of equally impressive and inspiring collaborations.

Etienne Roda-Gil, Serge Gainsbourg, Lenny Kravitz, Alain Bashung, Matthieu Chedid, Benjamin Biolay and Samuel Benchetrit have all left their mark on this artist’s career.

In addition to music, Vanessa Paradis also maintains strong ties with the world of cinema. For her first film role in 1989, she portrayed a vulnerable teen in love with one of her teachers in Noce Blanche, directed by Jean-Claude Brisseau.

Her captivating performance received many accolades, including the Romy Schneider Award, as well as the César Award for Most Promising Actress. Co-starring with Gérard Depardieu, she played a young woman in search of her father in Élisa, then starred in Un amour de sorcière, with Jeanne Moreau, to whom she paid a beautiful tribute by performing Le tourbillon de la vie during the opening ceremony of the 1995 Cannes Film Festival.

She then had two unforgettable roles in films directed by Patrice Leconte: Une chance sur deux, in which she brilliantly co-stars with Jean-Paul Belmondo and Alain Delon in their return to the big screen, and La fille sur le pont co-starring with Daniel Auteuil, which won her a nomination for the César Award for Best Actress in 2000.

She also achieved great popular success with L’Arnacoeur, and in recent years, has starred in many “auteur cinema” films, including projects by John Turturro (Apprenti gigolo), Guillaume Gallienne (Maryline), Sharunas Bartas (Frost), Samuel Benchetrit (Chien), and of course, Yann Gonzalez with the vibrant Un couteau dans le cœur, which, in May of 2018, was recognized by her first selection to compete at the Cannes Film Festival.

The New J12 - Vanessa Paradis

In 1991, she became the face of Coco perfume in an advertisement shot by Jean-Paul Goude, in which she swung from a trapeze in a spectacular 15-meter tall bird cage. Throughout the years, Vanessa Paradis has created a strong bond and demonstrated sincere dedication to CHANEL and Karl Lagerfeld, who photographed her for the project The Little Black Jacket.

Vanessa Paradis has also been the face of the Cambon, New Mademoiselle, Coco Cocoon and Girl handbags, as well as the Rouge Coco and Rouge Coco Shine lipstick ranges. She is a muse unlike any other.

Marie-Olga Jewelry watch

The House’s beautiful tribute to a bold and refined femininity

 

The secret links between equestrian and watchmaking arts are stamped with the same strong and timeless values: rigour, purity, transmission,  passion.  They both share the same song of gestures with the hand as a major actor, the eye as a conductor and the heart as a motor. They take time without counting it to achieve excellence, erase complexity to keep only the essential, the beauty, the pure gesture,  the perfect moment.

Quintessence of all these attentions, the MARIE-OLGA watch is a jewellery watchmaking creation that pays tribute to one of the passions of its eponymous muse, Marie-Olga Charriol, wife of the founder of the House and distinguished rider.

Bright and refined piece of watch art, this new ambassador of the Maison Charriol combines femininity,  sophistication and personality.  The time that gives patina and embellishes beautiful objects has shaped its lines, without sparing its hours, to give them curves of ideal proportions.

The silhouette of this watch reflects the gestures of the rider on her horse, combining voltes and figures. The case conjugates roundness and asymmetry.  Its oval shape is visually soft and feminine and of a masterful technicity.

The volutes of the magisterial Arabic numerals on its dial like purebreds raiser in a mother-of-pearl enclosure add their slender commas to the beautiful straightness of two hands punctuating the passage of time.

A unique stirrup extends the case with its asymmetrical lugs which underlines the equestrian metaphor and magnifies the purity and personality of MARIE-OLGA’s case.

The bezel and lugs of some versions are set with white diamonds, reflecting the watercolour shades of the mother-of-pearl dial, punctuated by precious markers.

An exclusive fastening system is hidden between the top of the bracelet and the case to offer each gesture a fluidity and a graceful mystery.

Symbolic link of all Charriol collections, the steel cable is here lightweight and ultra-feminine to extend the equestrian spirit and the evocation of the weaving of a competition horse mane on the bracelet. Its 16 twisted steel strands of 1 mm in diameter, exquisitely thin and of unfailing strength, offer this watchmaker’s jewel its Charriol signature.

In the purity of pink or yellow gold, it becomes a  refined daytime jewel.  Covered in diamonds, it is of a daring sophistication.  But whatever the version,  the  MARIE-OLGA watch offers the most demanding women the spirit of a watchmaker and a jeweller whose beauty is both timeless and boldly modern.

 

 

Cable and femininity by Charriol

A LOVE STORY SINCE 1983

Iconic and inescapable, the steel cable, present in every Charriol creation, both rebellious and sophisticated, embodies the «art of living the difference», in the image of Celtic culture and femininity, dear to the brand and more than ever of timeless modernity.

Queens, druidesses, fairies or goddesses, Celtic women expressed qualities of strength, Independence and intelligence of a great contemporaneity well before the Christian era. Far from passivity, both protective mothers, passionate lovers, political advisers and formidable fighters, the complexity of their soul and heart has inspired many legends of love, spirituality and freedom.

Ariadne’s thread of the Charriol collections, obviously present in this new collection, how not to see in their tendrils and volutes, in their stunning curves of metal twisted with 3 or 4 branches, the evocation of a womanity so intense that it becomes indomitable.

BVLGARI’s signature motif is the serpent, and its driving force is a fearless sense of design. These two elements combine in the Serpenti Seduttori (“seduction”) is a bold new interpretation of the design. It interprets the iconic drop-shaped watch case, but it is thinner than previous models, and it is set provocatively with diamonds on the side bezels. It has a sinewy new bracelet that is flexible, inspired by the original Serpenti watch, with links that mimic the shape of the case, and a serpent’s head. The crown is topped by a pink rubellite cabochon, a nod to Bulgari’s roots as a jeweller. There are several options, including rose, yellow, white gold and two diamond pavé options.

Legacy Machine FlyingT

Now in its 14th year of creating collaborative works of audacious horological art for the wrist – and sometimes for the tabletop – MB&F has finally created a timepiece dedicated exclusively to women. The Legacy Machine FlyingT is a three-dimensional creation, with a steeply cambered bezel and slender, beveled lugs on a round case that is fully set with diamonds. The high, convex domed sapphire crystal hovers over a curved dial plate. An asymmetric opening frames a raised flying tourbillon escapement, the carriage of which is topped by a single large diamond. A dial of white or black lacquer with blued gold hands sits on a 50° tilt at the 7 o’clock position. The watch is set with either round-brilliant or baguette diamonds.

The newest interpretation of the iconic Happy Sport has curvy oval proportions and a supple, updated version of the original galet (pebble) bracelet that adorned the first watch in the collection back in 1993. The bracelet is masterfully constructed using polished rounded pebble-like links, and while made of steel, it is as flexible as knitted mesh. It thus follows the curves of the wrist. This combination of fine construction, along with the use of both steel and diamonds, makes the watch accessible and wearable in the spirit of the easy-going charm at the heart of Happy Sport. In addition to the seven bezel-set diamonds dancing between sapphire crystals over the dial, there are diamonds set into the curved bezel of the stainless steel version.
