In 2017, Jaeger-LeCoultre is writing a new chapter in the story of its Rendez-Vous collection of women’s timepieces. Originally introduced by the Maison in 2012, Rendez-Vous is a collection bearing all the hallmarks of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Métiers RaresTM (Rare Crafts), impeccable timekeeping accuracy, unrivalled excellence in craftsmanship and the breathtaking artistry of its jewellery designs and settings.

The new Rendez-Vous collection, once again the result of the combined talents of the watchmakers and craftspeople of the Manufacture in the Vallée de Joux, is a celebration of horology designed for women, with sophisticated materials in muted and sparkling tones reinforcing the timeless style of these elegant, noble timepieces.

The introduction of a moon phase and a new chiming reminder function, yellow and rose gold options, a larger size and sumptuous new straps, all reflect the popularity of the Rendez-Vous collection worldwide, among art, design and watch lovers alike.

A rich gamut of colours, including yellow and rose gold watch cases, takes inspiration from the constantly changing light of the sun and the moon, from the first glows of dawn to the vibrant shades of dusk, turning to a moonlit sky as day turns to night – eliciting colours, reflections and emotions to accompany and inspire a woman every moment of her life, whatever the occasion and wherever she may be.

At the heart of every Rendez-Vous timepiece is an impeccably precise automatic movement coupled with the aesthetic perfection of a rare, precious jewel. The new Rendez-Vous unveils the secrets of watchmaking mastery at its finest, both in technique and artistry – from the elaborate ornamentation of its movement to the elegant adornment of its dial, from the delicate setting of its diamonds and sapphires to the presentation of its timekeeping functions.

The UK’s best buyers have sourced around 5,500 wines and 3,000 spirits, taking the crème de la crème from each region of the world whilst carefully checking the provenance of every bottle.

’’ We work with 900 suppliers from all over the world.’’

Yevgeny Chichvarking business philosophy is a team of perfectionists,  ”we wanted to create the leading wine shop in the world and as such, we have made no compromises in terms of quality”.

The inspiration to name it Hedonism Wines was inspired from the early Greek philosophic schools where it was believed that pleasure was the only intrinsic good. We believe that there are many things which one should enjoy in life and with the word “hedonism” frequently used in tasting notes wine is certainly one of them.


”Each of our guests can expect to receive the very highest level of customer service from our dedicated wine specialists, many of whom are former sommeliers from top Michelin starred restaurants. With a passion for Hedonism project our extremely friendly and knowledgeable team understand how to make our guests feel welcome and If we do not have the bottle you are after, we will try our very hardest to source it for you”.

With deliveries within one hour in central London, the wine specialists are also available to come to you should you need their advice and expertise.
