Jaeger-LeCoultre at the Opening Ceremony of the 74th Venice International Film Festival


Official sponsor of the Film Festival for thirteen years, Jaeger-LeCoultre reaffirmed its commitment to encouraging and celebrating filmmaking at the opening ceremony that took place at Palazzo del Cinema in Venice last night.

Alexander Payne’s “Downsizing” movie opened this year’s Venice International Film Festival. On this occasion, the American filmmaker chose to wear a Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Moon watch in steel. Jaeger-LeCoultre Deputy CEO Geoffroy Lefebvre walked the Red Carpet alongside actress Eva Riccobono, who looked radiant wearing a Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Sonatina “Amour” watch in pink gold. Rebecca Hall, member of the “Venezia 74” jury, was wearing a Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous Ivy Secret watch in white gold.


Since 1833, Jaeger-LeCoultre has remained dedicated to the legacy of watchmaking traditions while maintaining its expertise for invention in creating authentic, fine watchmaking legends. Committed to a constant quest for excellence and supported by a unique inventive spirit, Jaeger-LeCoultre has a long-standing engagement in supporting the appreciation and preservation of films.

For more than a decade, Jaeger-LeCoultre has been closely associated with the best artistic film festivals around the world, including Venice, Shanghai, and San Sebastian, and in turn pays tribute to the creative talent of filmmakers by annually awarding the Glory to the Filmmaker Award.

Through its close affinity with the world of film, Jaeger-LeCoultre has found shared values and a common mission: each second bears the imprint of a moment of eternity.

The feminine Rendez-Vous watch is with you in all the precious moments and adapts to every new role. Jaeger-LeCoultre invites every woman to express the actor within her, by capturing an iconic moment or scene from the movies.

Live a uniquely emotional moment and share it with everyone. #LikeinaMovie
