The Pavilion also served as the venue for a themed exhibition where guests had the opportunity to immerse themselves in the universe of Jaeger-LeCoultre where they were among the first to in the world to experience the new Rendez-Vous Night & Day Tribute to Cinema, a feminine timepiece that pays homage to all things cinema.

Powered by an automatic movement, a closer inspection of the white dial reveals a day/night indicator in at six o’clock which replaces the traditional moon with the famous star symbol that has become synonymous with Hollywood.
