Actress Sarah Gadon visited Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre in Switzerland to discover the latest ladies’ timepieces presented to her at “the Maison d’Antoine”, a private venue within the heart of the Manufacture, in the XIXth century building. This unique space is bathed in the same natural light of the Vallée de Joux that is renowned as being so precious for watchmakers. The space has been designed as a meeting place for friends of the brand and devotees of Fine Watchmaking.
During her day with Jaeger-LeCoultre, Sarah Gadon discovered a few of the 180 skills involved in developing and producing the most prestigious timepieces. The artisans of the Manufacture display a wealth of imagination in creating exclusive designs, such as the ladies’ Rendez-Vous watches.
Sarah is wearing the Rendez-Vous Night & Day watch on a steel bracelet embellished with the finest hand crafted finishes. The 1930s-inspired hour numerals create a subtle link between the brand’s longstanding expertise and its perpetually renewed creativity. Backstage beats the unfailingly regular mechanical automatic movement, of which the oscillating weight and the exceptional finishes may be admired through the sapphire crystal case-back. During her visit to the Vallee de Joux Sarah said : ‘I am humbled and inspired by the work and the people under this roof. I now truly understand the complexity involved in creating these incredible watches. Thank you for sharing your work and your passion with me.‘
