Strolling into the daybreak elicits the steps that carry us nearer to realising our desires – the desires that we may need upon a capturing star.
In an evocative new video and collection of images, Anya tells a narrative with out phrases, in a dance sequence of lightness, class and swirling motion that echoes the flight-path of the capturing star throughout the dial of the watch.
Dancing comes naturally to Anya, who skilled as a ballerina and has danced in a number of of her movie roles, as in Final Evening in Soho and The Queen’s Gambit. Way more than an expert talent, dancing is an important a part of her life, she says: “The very first thing I do each morning is dance – loopy dancing in my bed room or kitchen. It makes my spirits soar and units me up for the day. After I’m dancing is after I really feel most alive to all of life’s potentialities.”
‘Stroll into the Daybreak’ evokes these potentialities. Fluid and robust, Anya’s actions mirror her private aesthetic – glossy and complex, characterful and versatile, harking back to the timepiece that she wraps round her wrist.
“The Rendez-Vous Dazzling Taking pictures Star is a miniature murals for the wrist,” says Anya. “The capturing star on the dial is extremely romantic and the glowing blue dial and circles of diamonds make it very glamorous – and but I see it as a watch that might be a real ally for my every day life, from morning till night, counting out the beats of the day.”
Launched at Watches and Wonders in 2022, the Rendez-Vous Dazzling Taking pictures Star was impressed by the wonders of the night time sky. Intrigued by the ephemeral great thing about capturing stars, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s watchmakers determined to seize this uncommon celestial phenomenon in a timepiece. Harnessing their unwavering dedication to creativity – a worth shared with our model ambassador in her appearing profession – they invented a completely new mechanism that makes a star shoot throughout the dial at random intervals, simply as actual capturing stars streak throughout the heavens. Enhancing the impact, a glowing blue aventurine dial is surrounded by a hoop of claw-set diamonds – the signature of the Rendez-Vous Dazzling line.
