High Complication For Women: Jaeger-LeCoultre

High Complication For Women: Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Ivy Minute Repeater Watch. Richemont owns IWC, Montblanc, Cartier, and Jaeger-LeCoultre. What do these prestigious brands have in common? Each has dazzled the luxury world with a range of high-end women’s watches over the last few years. This year IWC released its first ever watch for women with the Portofino Midsize, while Montblanc introduced its Boheme collection for everyday wear.
At the absolute top end is a highly complicated women’s model by Swiss Jaeger-LeCoultre, known as the Rendez-Vous Ivy Minute Repeater.
The caliber 942A combines indication of the time with a minute repeater complication – all with a self-winding automatic rotor. Minute repeaters are historic mechanisms that use a series of chimes to indicate the current time via sounds. Such functionality was adopted from clocks, and often used to know the time when it was too dark to see a dial.

Today, the minute repeater is a valued and honored mechanical complication, even though utility is limited.
