Jaeger-LeCoultre supports and promotes filmmaking culture based on a common mission: to imprint each second with a sense of eternity

Jaeger-LeCoultre hosted a Gala Dinner to celebrate its 10-year partnership with the Venice International Film Festival in the heart of Lido island  with over 200 international guests on September 7, 2015. CEO Daniel Riedo greeted the friends of the Maison: Festival Director Alberto Barbera, Carmen Chaplin, Catherine Deneuve,  Terry Gilliam, Daniel Bruhl and Felicitas Rombold, Maribel Verdú, Cristiana Capotondi, Kit Chan, Eduardo Novillo Astrada, Clare Milford Haven were among the guests at the celebration.

The cocktail reception followed by the gala dinner took place in the enchanting setting of one Europe’s most elegant seaside locations, on a golden sanded beach. The atmosphere of the event set against the sea and the sky was inspired by the latest Jaeger-LeCoultre collection paying tribute to astronomy and reflecting the depth and beauty of Fine Watchmaking.

The latest collection includes such highlights as the Duometre Spherotourbillon Moon equipped with a masterfully accurate mechanism designed to keep precision for a full 3,887 years and the Rendez-Vous Moon ladies watch that vividly reveals the creative freedom driving the Grande Maison through a beautifully staged moon-phase display.

To make this evening an even more memorable one, Jaeger-LeCoultre arranged for the fireworks to illuminate the setting and create a spectacular performance in the sky above the beach of Lido.
