Jaeger-LeCoultre looks to the stars at SIHH 2015

A tribute to astronomy

Jaeger-LeCoultre looks to the stars at SIHH 2015
Drawing on the mystery of the heavenly skies, the Swiss watch manufacturer aligns the stars for its 2015 collection

Unveiling its series of novelties at SIHH 2015, Jaeger-LeCoultre stole the show with its presentation of elegant timepieces. Inspired by the skies over the Vallée de Joux, the birthplace of Maison Jaeger-LeCoultre, the movements of the heavenly bodies are marked in the complications of the watches. Similarly, the materials chosen for the watch faces reflect the magical qualities of the stars: Meteorite stone and lapis lazuli were used for their deep connections to astronomy and impart a bit of magic to their wearers, linking them to the skies. The full collection includes:

Rendez-Vous Celestial
Inspired by the passage of the constellations of the Northern Hemisphere, this model displays the months of the year on a sky-chart, while  the star-shaped hand blazes a trail across the firmament of the watch's face.
