Jaeger-LeCoultre is pleased to present two exquisite ladies’ watches on this Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is fast approaching, why not take this opportunity to express your sincere gratitude to your mother and/or wife?

On this special occasion, Jaeger-LeCoultre is pleased to present two exquisite ladies’ watches – Rendez-Vous Moon Medium and Rendez-Vous Moon


Rendez-Vous Moon Medium

 

An iconic timekeeping function, interpreted for women

Available in steel or rose gold, the Rendez-Vous Moon Medium includes a moon phase,

with its finely worked elliptical guilloché appearing both on the dial and on the disk that bears the moon phase itself.

With a time lag of only one day every 972 years, the moon phase function boasts the ultimate precision.

The glistening moon has a sandy finish, lending it a surprising sense of depth.

An inspired way for the Manufacture’s craftspeople to faithfully reproduce the varying faces of the moon with its reflections and changing colours as the hours pass.

Rendez-Vous Moon

A dramatic entrance for rose gold

The first appearance of rose gold in this exceptional 36mm timepiece is enhanced with one of the signatures of the Métiers Rares™ of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Manufacture – the gem setting.

Its golden dial, burning with the brightness of a thousand fires, is the backdrop for a tender pearl moon and a watch that is feminine in the extreme,

its hue reminiscent of a dawning day, as the sun rises in a cloudless sky.

On this elaborate timepiece, the ultimate in femininity down to every last detail, both the bezel and the rim of the case are entirely set with brilliant cut diamonds.

With only a one day time lag every 972 years, the moon phase is a timekeeping function of rare precision.

On the edge of the dial, the star, a signature of the Rendez-Vous line, offers a discreet reminder of the time of a future rendez-vous.

 

LES ÉTERNELLES DE CHANEL

For the third consecutive year, CHANEL presents new models for its collection of Fine Jewellery watches, Les Éternelles de CHANEL.

Conceived as a capsule collection, these secret watches, which embody all the creativity and savoir-faire of CHANEL Fine Jewellery and Watches, are enriched year by year.

In 2017, the Fine Jewellery Studio of Creation at CHANEL reinterprets the lace and ribbons so dear to Mademoiselle Chanel with three unique pieces.


The Ruban watch evolves with absolute liberty, wrapping around the wrist like a jewel- encrusted ribbon. This delicate, 18-carat white gold lace with 1,369 diamonds – including 7 Fancy-cut diamonds – hides on one side a secret watch, and, on the other, a 5-carat pear- cut diamond.

The Médaillon Watch:
On the back of this engraved rock-crystal medallion, pearls and diamonds – including a pear-cut Fancy Light Yellow 5.32-carat diamond – hide a watch paved with diamonds. The medallion is set on an 18-carat white-gold chain, set with 587 diamonds.

The Camélia Watch:
At the heart of a pearl necklace, which can be transformed into a bracelet, a watch is concealed by a bouquet of 18-carat white-gold camellias and 503 diamonds, including a 10- carat Fancy Brown Yellow diamond.

Les Éternelles de CHANEL are inspired by the fundamentals of CHANEL style and reflect the ever-renewing creative spirit at the heart of CHANEL Fine Jewellery.

Cartier’s New Additions of Juste un Clou and Ecrou de Cartier Collection

The JUSTE UN CLOU gold torque, set close to the neck for maximum impact, flaunts its radical credentials with a powerful statement of allegiance to a bold attitude.


The first nail bracelet was created by ALDO CIPULLO for CARTIER NEW YORK in the 1970s. His radical appropriation of a utilitarian object as a jewelry echoed the anti-conformist state of mind of the era.


A humble piece of hardware! A basic nail re-purposed today by Cartier into a necklace of palpable energy and sheer, unadulterated chic.


The JUSTE UN CLOU torque brings the finishing touch to a well-rounded collection that features the necklace in a choice of 18K yellow gold, 18K pink gold, 18K white gold or paved with diamonds, as well as an oversized bracelet. The pieces magnify the precious qualities of everyday objects in a sublime take on the ordinary.

Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle World Time

An eloquent expression of Geneva’s most demanding Fine Watchmaking traditions, the Traditionnelle collection welcomes an exclusive version of the famous Vacheron Constantin world time model presented in 2011. Simultaneously displaying 37 of the world’s time zones, this travel watch with a three-part dial is adorned with a hand-enamelled gold world map. Depicted in subtly graded shades of blue, the seas and continents composed a miniature work resulting from patient and meticulous craftsmanship and brimming with graphic details and depth effects. A blend of artisanal refinement and perfect technical mastery, the new Traditionnelle world time is distinguished by its user friendliness enhanced by the crown-operated activation of all functions. This Hallmark of Geneva certified model appears attired in precious platinum for a 10-piece limited edition.

World Time Traditionnelle
Enamelling expertise

 This remarkable edition is joining the Traditionnelle collection by Vacheron Constantin, an eloquent expression of Geneva’s Fine Watchmaking traditions inherited from the 18th century. Crafted in opaque enamel and grisaille enamel, its dial highlights the horological expertise of the Manufacture, conveyed through traditional decorative crafts perpetuated across the centuries. The distinctive and sophisticated world time display, composed of three superimposed discs, is enhanced by a miniature enamelled gold world map.

The seas, portrayed in an opaque blue shade of enamel, accentuate every detail of the continents they surround. The strikingly realistic coastal and land reliefs take on subtle shades of blue and white, achieved using the grisaille enamel technique. This delicate paint, composed of Limoges white – an extremely rare and fine powder mixed with oils – is applied to the dark enamel in tiny touches and meticulously drawn out using needles and brushes. This material is particularly difficult to work with and calls for dexterity, experience and extreme precision in adjusting the firing times – to the nearest second – for each layer applied. Opaque enamel calls for equally painstaking care and can tolerate no flaws, since the light directly strikes even the slightest bump or rough patch, instead of being absorbed by the translucent nature of a traditional enamel. This technique used for the world map is picked up on the 24-hour disc bearing gold hour-markers and the 37 city names painted on dark blue opaque enamel. They appear in white for those representing time zones with a full-hour time difference and in sky blue for those with half-hour or quarter-hour time differences, all swept over by 18-carat gold hands and rimmed by a minute ring. After 20 hours of decorative craftsmanship and ten firings, the tableau springs to life, graced with a wealth of fine details and fascinating light effects.

 Elegance and convenience

The Traditionnelle world time model frames this exceptional dial with a precious 42.5 mm-diameter case, water-resistant to 30 metres and housing Caliber 2460 WT, developed and manufactured by Vacheron Constantin. In addition to central hours, minutes and seconds hands, this mechanical self-winding movement also drives a combination of original functions: simultaneous reading of 37 world time zones – including those offset by a half-hour or quarter-hour compared with Coordinated Universal Time – along with a day/night indication and simplified adjustment of all these indications via the crown. Its rating precision is further ensured by a stop-seconds system. Set to winter time in the Northern hemisphere, 225-part Caliber 2460 WT features a 22-carat gold oscillating weight, a balance wheel beating at a frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 vibrations/hour) and a 40-hour power reserve.

The limited edition – available exclusively from Vacheron Constantin boutiques – consists of ten individually numbered watches bearing the prestigious Hallmark of Geneva and fitted with an elegant blue Mississippiensis alligator leather strap with large square scales and a platinum triple folding clasp.

LONGINES unveils the new TV spot featuring Eddie Peng

Asian movie star Eddie Peng is a LONGINES Ambassador of Elegance since 2014. His innate class, his presence and his charisma are the perfect incarnation of LONGINES’ values. A while ago, Eddie travelled to Paris with a shooting crew to film the latest TV spot for LONGINES.

The new LONGINES TV spot was filmed at Chantilly Racecourse, home of the Prix de Diane LONGINES race. The whole setting in the TVC highlights LONGINES’ passion for equestrian sports and racing culture in France. In the campaign, Eddie made an elegant appearance at Chantilly racecourse and the LONGINES Master Collection Moon Phases timepiece on Eddie’s wrist adds refinement to the scene. He is enjoying the race and looking around the crowd through his binoculars in the grandstand. At some point, he set his gaze on an elegant lady who is supporting her favourite horse. Eddie Peng is the epitome of elegance in the new LONGINES advertising campaign.

Eddie and the crew worked in perfect harmony. During filming, he exuded LONGINES’ signature elegance through his professional performance. Eddie Peng, on the campaign: “It was my pleasure to work on a new TV shot with LONGINES and to meet elegant people at the beautiful race track of Chantilly. It was a very pleasant atmosphere to work in and I felt at home with the LONGINES family.”

Retail Price: HKD 26,100

As a traditional watchmaking company, LONGINES has been producing exceptional timepieces since the very beginning. The LONGINES Master Collection is the perfect illustration of this corporate ethos, as can be seen from the success enjoyed by this range since it was launched in 2005. With a diameter of 40 mm, this steel chronograph houses a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement. Its silvered stamped barleycorn dial and its handsome blued-steel hands make an elegantly contrasting background to the moonphase display. The case is mounted on a brown alligator leather strap.

“Meet Mercedes”

The motto was “Meet Mercedes”: Journalists already had the opportunity to discover the product innovations of Mercedes-Benz Cars on the day before the 87th Geneva Motor Show in a relaxed atmosphere, and exchange views with the company’s experts during this casual event. A total of eleven production and concept vehicles from Mercedes-Benz, Mercedes-AMG, Mercedes-Maybach and smart were on show at “Meet Mercedes”. The main focus was on the new E-Class Cabriolet.

“The passion for extraordinary vehicles, which we share with our customers, is reflected in our new E-Class Cabriolet in a special way. It is a car that lets people enjoy comfort and luxury in the open air”, says Britta Seeger, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG, responsible for Mercedes-Benz Cars Marketing & Sales. The open-top four seater is the latest member of the successful model series.

A sneak preview of the new extraordinary variant of the legendary G-Class off-road icon was also on display as part of “Meet Mercedes”: the Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet (combined fuel consumption: 17.0 l/100 km. CO2 emissions (combined): 397 g/km). With the Concept X- CLASS, Mercedes-Benz Vans is providing an outlook on its new pickup, the X-Class. The “Aesthetics A” sculpture points even further into the future. With it, the design team surrounding Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer of Daimler AG, is showcasing a vision of a saloon car in the compact vehicle segment that has been radically reduced to its basic structure.

Omar Khan Rugs

Omar Khan reinvents the rug for seekers of exquisitely crafted statement pieces. Whether spirited or subtle in composition, each design is a foundational flourish, able both to unite the various elements of an interior and to provide a distinctive final touch.

Chaumet reveals new additions to their signature Liens and Plume Collection

A proclamation of love and devotion

An embodiment of unity and promise, Chaumet’s signature Liens collection is heralded as a vivid narrative for moments of enchantment, while its signature Plume collection, inspired by the lightness of a feather, reflects the most intricate of feelings. This Valentine’s Day, Chaumet brings forth new Jeux de Liens additions, incorporating new hard stones in Pink Opal and Chrysoprase – along with their Plume engagement rings and wedding bands, with both collections transmitting a subtle imagery, perfect for the celebration of love.

Combining hard stones into the Jeux de Liens creations contrasts Chaumet’s revered ability to reflect light with shadows and colour, adding a dimension of aesthetic intrigue – making these thought-provoking pieces instantly distinctive. The signature crossed ribbon symbolizes the bond between two people, and is undoubtedly fitting this Valentine’s Day, expressing sentimental values transcending beyond the boundaries of time and fashion.

The chrysoprase stone is a stone of joy and is often regarded as an attracting force for love and prosperity. Incorporating this precious stone into their newest Jeux de Liens creation provides an element of hope this Valentine’s Day, perfect for every couple in their journey together.

Believed by many as a stone of healing, the Pink Opal stone represents peace and tranquility, and is apropos this Valentine’s Day not only for its colour, but also in its symbolism of harmony. The Jeux de Liens with Pink Opal will celebrate each couple this Valentine’s Day as they continue to share new magical moments with each other.

Inspired by the lightness of a feather, the Plume collection perfectly reflects Chaumet’s subtle yet elegant grandeur – a timeless and classic bridal choice. The Plume wedding bands and engagement rings are designed with a feather inspired blueprint, sleek and light in its aesthetic, and reflect enduring love and passion – an eternal promise.

The Liens theme has been a part of Chaumet since the earliest era of the Parisian jeweller and has seen numerous interpretations over Chaumet’s enduring history. Embodying a timeless style and design, the Plume collection protects each couple’s promise of love. Both icons of the jeweller’s many signature pieces, this Valentine’s Day sees the birth of new renditions of two eternal motifs.

Cartier The Love bracelet

Screw meets screwdriver – the birth of an icon

The Love bracelet was created in 1969 in the Cartier New York workshops by designer Aldo Cipullo, who would also become the mastermind behind the incredible Juste un Clou bracelet two years later.

Secured using a screwdriver, the Love bracelet symbolises attachment to one another and thus, in the words of Aldo Cipullo, Cartier created “modern love handcuffs”.

It is also the work of a masterfully modern craftsman who, with this sculpted gold piece, revolutionised the art and manner of wearing jewellery. The Love bracelet is not chosen to match an outfit or to suit the occasion, as was still the custom at the time. It remains present on the wrist like a second skin, day and night and always hits the right note.

Because of its difference, the Love bracelet would become an expression of independence, of standing out from the rest, unique and unisex.


Design codes: the oval and the screws

The bracelet established new codes, starting with its choice of shape – the oval – and its condition of fitting as closely as possible around the loved one’s wrist.

Next came the screws, dazzling and instantly recognisable. They echo the Santos watch, which also features them on its bezel, they identify the bracelet at first glance and boost its androgynous charm.

A masculine, yet feminine bracelet

The Love bracelet’s appeal also stems from its pure, understated and ergonomic design, which caused it to be coveted by men as much as women. This is one of the keys to the piece’s success, modern before its time, reconciling feminine and masculine.

The legend – famous great loves

Couples everywhere wear the bracelet to proclaim their love for one another for all to see, like Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, or Frank Sinatra and his wife Nancy. These famous couples chose to wear the legendary bracelet, whose iconic and sentimental power has endured over the generations.


2017:
This latest version is more delicate, but otherwise alike in every way with its wrist-hugging oval shape emphatically punctuated with screws.

A variation on a universal classic… unisex and graphic, fastened with the help of a screwdriver, sealing your relationship within an everlasting circle of Love.

A show of strength, a state of mind, and a symbol of commitment to romance.

Wear it to signify the love that it embodies and joins together. A passion to share, worn singly, layered or alongside the original, further solidifying the link… How far would you go for love?
