Jaeger-LeCoultre hosted a press preview for their latest addition to the brand, the Master Calendar. As Joyce was busy attending a handful of events, Baby and I were the representatives for the #KinkyBlueFairyTeam to attend the posh affair. When we arrived at the Jaeger-LeCoultre boutique, we were greeted by three lovely ladies at the reception desk. As we entered the premise, we were enthralled with the setting and mood, everything looked so classy and exclusive! We were being very mindful with our manners and Baby wished she wore a cocktail dress instead 😆

An array of hors-d'oeuvre, wine, champagne and fruit juices catered by Shook! were proffered when we entered. So yummy!
This is the halal Char Siew Sou made from chicken marinated in sweet sauce. How could we resist?!
The Rendez-Vous Moon
While following the aesthetic that is so characteristic of the Rendez-Vous line, the Rendez-Vous Moon watch opens up a new chapter in the catalogue of watch complications for ladies. Equipped with a wide moon phase indication, its great legibility and femininity is expressed by a mother-of-pearl moon display. A mysterious hand in the form of a star subtly indicates the chosen time for your next rendez-vous, perhaps? 😉
These two timepieces were the stars of the night - the all new Master Calendar.
On the left is from the Pink Gold collection, and the right from the Steel collection.
The new Master Calendar of Jaeger-LeCoultre is distinguished by the virtues and indeed the very face of astronomy. Endowed with all the attributes that have forged the success of this line, it is also imbued with a seductive appeal exercising its own laws of gravity, thanks to the choice of meteorite stone to compose its dial (taken from the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter)!
The characteristics of the Master Calendar will blow each and everyone one of you off your seats.
Mechanical automatic winding movement, 43 hours power-reserve, 305 parts, and 32 jewels are encapsulated in a timepiece measuring 26mm in diameter.
The Master Calendar functions by the hour, minute, second, day, date, month and even moon phase. The case of this impressive watch is made of steel or 18-carat pink gold with a diameter of 39mm and 10.6mm thick; with polished finish, cambered with sapphire crystals, and water-resistant at 5 bar making it suitable for everyday use and even swimming. Straps are made out of alligator leather with either steel folding clasp or 18-carat pink gold pin buckle.
The intricacy of the Master Calendar took our breaths away, every bit of it is irresistible. I whispered to Baby that I would definitely invest in a watch like this someday when I can afford it!
My attention was drawn to this magnificent chandelier hanging elegantly in the centre of the boutique.
A pretty lady performed on the "Gu Zheng" or otherwise known as the Chinese zither. The whole ambience was so peaceful and comforting.
This was my favourite dish that evening, wok-fried noodles with prawn.
Baby had a little fun and tried on the women's collection. She tried on the Reverso (roughly RM23,700). It's an investment, we say! This concludes our splendid evening with Jaeger-LeCoultre. It was a refreshing experience!
