Jaeger-LeCoultre presented a short film to reveal the new Rendez-Vous Dazzling Star watch. Dubbed In Pursuit of Chance, it stars Amanda Seyfried, an American actress and Friend of the House. In a mysterious and dramatic setting, the new video invites viewers to reflect on the meaning of chance, in life, in love and in the stars.
In Pursuit of Chance focuses on the concept of manifestation. Our lives are not purely a matter of luck; by clarifying our intentions and imparting them to the universe, we create the conditions where we can achieve what we want. The shooting star becomes a metaphor for the power of manifesting – this random celestial phenomenon mirrors the apparent randomness of chance.
The video was shot at the legendary estate designed and built by artist and sculptor Xavier Corbero in Barcelona. The architecture itself takes the form of a monumental sculpture, with geometric concrete structures stacked at different heights and linked by floating staircases and curved arches.
With the starry night sky as a backdrop, Amanda Seyfried appears wearing the new Rendez-Vous Dazzling Star. Inspired by the shooting stars, Jaeger-LeCoultre newest creation is fitted with an entirely new mechanism. Conceived and developed within the Manufacture, this mechanism causes a shooting star to flash across the dial at random moments.
The new Rendez-Vous Dazzling Star features a blue Aventurine dial that captures the beauty of a star-studded night sky. It is accentuated by the two rings of diamonds that encircle the watch case – the signature of the dazzling Rendez-Vous. In the center of the dial, framed by another ring of diamonds, three discs are layered over one other, concealing the shooting star when it is inactive. Activated by the movement of the wrist, the shooting star briefly appears then disappears.
