Hands-On: The Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Night & Day Large

Hands-On: The Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Night & Day Large

The Rendez-Vous assortment was at first delivered in 2012 as a round watch for ladies searching for an option in contrast to the rectangular Reverso. The Rendez-Vous is described by its round case shape and was really propelled by the Master Control. While the first idea of the Rendez-Vous was to offer a round case choice with more “ladylike” highlights, for example, more modest measurements and materials like precious stones and mother-of-pearl, the new Night & Day Large is a takeoff from that with its case estimating a strong 38.3mm compared to the more modest Night & Day that estimates 34mm .

There’s no doubt that the rose gold Night and Day has somewhat more shimmer than the steel models.

In treated steel, this is an extraordinary alternative for an ordinary watch.

So what is there to think about this watch other than the size? All things considered, it is accessible in steel with or without a wristband and rose gold with precious stones and a tie. The silvered dial has a guilloché design emanating from the middle. The Arabic numerals are somewhat overstated, which is standard for the Rendez-Vous assortment. There are little precious stone set records, however they’re generally unpretentious and add simply a little shimmer (note: the early forms took shots here at SIHH don’t have these jewel lists yet). The hands are a fresh blued steel and difference pleasantly with the silvered dial.

Inside this watch is the in-house type 898D/1.

The watch is fueled by the type JLC 898D/1, which is a programmed development that includes the hours, minutes, focus seconds, and obviously an evening and day sign. The development is made of 300 sections and has a force hold of 40 hours. The evening and day sign is shown at six o’clock, where a semi-round gap is put. The sun, addressing the day, is delineated with misrepresented squiggly beams, while the moon (showing night) is a bow moon with three little stars connected. On the huge steel form, the sun and moon are in blued steel while the rose gold adaptation has a rose gold sun and moon. Clearly, this complication isn’t completely vital all things considered, however this is a women’s watch, not a device watch. 

The day and night pointers have barely sufficient character to make them interesting.

So how can it wear on the wrist? Truly well. It looks clean and relying upon your wrist size, sits pleasantly. The dial is not difficult to peruse and the separating surfaces between the middle and the external section ring are truly add a decent touch to this piece. Despite the fact that the numerals are an eminent trait of the Rendez-Vous assortment, they are somewhat too huge for my enjoying. Rather than looking rich, they wind up looking somewhat silly, yet there is no reason for fixating on something that I can’t change. Generally speaking the watch actually gives an exquisite yet down to earth impression.

On the wrist, the bigger case size wears very nicely.

Overall, I think this is a truly pleasant delivery from JLC and shows that there keeps on being a pattern towards less frilly, bigger ladies’ watches. In hardened steel, the Rendez-Vous Night & Day Large retails for $8,800 in steel on a lash, $9,900 in steel on an arm band, and $23,600 in pink gold with the jewel bezel. Particularly in steel, this is very acceptable worth comparative with what else I’ve seen of late. For more information,  visit Jaeger-LeCoultre on the web .
