Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Rendez-Vous Ivy Minute Repeater

Rendez-Vous Ivy Minute Repeater

Music to the ears

Making its debut entrance in the women’s Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Collection, is the first minute repeater under the Rendez-Vous line. Designed for the sophisticated female, the Rendez-Vous timepieces combine complex mechanisms with pure delicate craftsmanship.  It is more than just a watch. The Ivy Minute Repeater, tinkles a sweet tune of chimes, translating watchmaking movements to audible purity.
Hidden in its 39mm casing is the new Calibre 942A, that holds a 43 hour power reserve that beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour, making this automatic movement exceptionally precise.

With the touch of a space-saving push button, the Ivy Minute Repeater serenades you with a melody that has been finely tuned by musically inclined master watchmakers. This melody is created from two patented trebuchet hammers, striking two crystals that hit the sapphire crystal and results in a loudspeaker effect. Immense care has been taken into consideration to dampen external mechanism sounds by introducing silent regulators. By doing so, the perfect balanced harmony of warmer and elegant aural tones are achieved of just the minute repeater movement.

Further security measures are undertaken to prevent mechanism damage with the introduction of the push button, which will not restart the mechanism once it is in action. Impeccable craftsmanship is needed to bring together such technicality with beauty.


Presented in 18 carat white gold sunburst guilloché motif with blue enamel, diamonds are pave set in a design of organic ivy leaves, totalling to 548 diamonds (2.3 carats) on the dial and casing. Together with a satin band,the Ivy Minute Repeater is water resistant of up to 30 metres. Perfect for the upcoming Christmas celebrations.

Since 2012, Jaeger-LeCoultre incorporates creative watchmaking mastery with an artistic touch, with the likes of the Tourbillon, Celestial and Perpetual watches. The new Ivy Minute Repeater represents a whole new level of horology brilliance with the music it makes.
