The watchmaker in Ru Valley has always been keen to explore the sky, and the founder Antoine LeCoultre is a fanatic of the galaxy and the constellation. The genius inventor spent his whole life pursuing perfection, and especially preferred to study natural elements. Jaeger-LeCoultre specially created this timepiece to promote his observation and creative spirit.
The superbly sophisticated version of this watch’s HybridArtistica features an arched time indicator above the dial, paired with its signature stretched number with unique design, and covered with baguette-cut diamonds. Jaeger-LeCoultre watch factory’s mysterious inlay technology, so that there is no metal gap between the stones. The diamond support is hidden underneath, so that the light of the diamond can be fully bloomed without being disturbed, and the dial also emits a distinctive brilliance. A halo of diamonds surrounds the elliptical opening, which gives a peek at the strange landscape of the horoscope. On the lapis lazuli rotating dial, hand-painted twelve constellations come to life. The color of lapis lazuli lies between azure and cyan, which is best suited to set off the starry sky. The designer added a bright star to the dial to show the date in a poetic way: by adjusting the second crown set with an inverted diamond, this star will record your important date moments.
