When Pierre Jaquet-Droz opened his second watchmaking workshop in London in 1774, he provided a striking demonstration of his strategic audacity and his far-reaching vision. In the Age of Enlightenment, London was the commercial decision-making heart of Europe, a key business center.
Entering the sports watch field, Jaquet-Droz confirms its mastery of the aesthetic and technical concerns of the 21st century, based on the Manufacture’s values over the last two centuries: boldness, a sense of adventure and the love of a challenge. New Inspired by the 8 and the infinity, the Grande Seconde SW and the SW Chrono compete with the finest examples in watchmaking.
Sporty, impulsive, yet classically distinguished, the Grande Seconde SW personifies the very values of Jaquet Droz. With a fluted bezel, hollowed horns and a strap in vulcanized rubber, the audacity of the sporty design combines modernity with the robustness of an all-steel case, also available in red gold, steel with ceramic, steel with rubber treatment or titanium, water-resistant to 5 bar (50 meters).
