Trust Jaeger-LeCoultre to create an Art Deco-inspired timepiece infused with total refinement and class. Their Rendez-Vous Night & Day combines mother-of-pearl with diamonds in a gracefully rounded face with a totally sophisticated air. We particularly love the classic typography of the numerals and fine textured detailing on the dial — though finishing things off with a luxurious alligator leather strap certainly doesn’t hurt; $23,400, Jaeger-LeCoultre.com.
It’s time for something a little different. At least, that’s what Girard-Perregaux was thinking when they gave more conventional and popular round-faced models the pass and drew their inspiration for this Vintage 1945 XXL Chronograph from a genuine Art Deco era model. The line is available in a downright dizzying array of options, but this pink-gold model with perfectly balanced chronograph counters wins our vote; Girard-Perregaux.com.
