Stone, mother-of-pearl and enamel. For the first time, Jaquet Droz is celebrating its venerable history of craftsmanship by introducing a new format that pays tribute to the beauty of design, timeless yet always very up to date.
Tradition and innovation are the core values of horological creations by Jaquet Droz. In the same spirit, the brand is presenting three new timepieces whose watch-case is only 35 mm in diameter, a tribute to the skill and excellence of each craftsman involved in its fabrication.
To help watch connoisseurs seize each passing moment, Jaquet Droz has endowed the Petite Heure Minute and its new case with the 2653 self-winding mechanical movement. Mechanical virtuosity meets deliciously feminine refinement.
The dial-maker's art as practiced by Jaquet Droz celebrates this union. The azure blue stone of the Petite Heure Minute Aventurine espouses the deep blue of its satin strap. As for the Petite Heure Minute Ivory Enamel, the gleam of red gold brings out the unique tonality and grain of the enamel, whose beauty is as great as the temperature needed to fix its hue. Finally, the luminous mother-of-pearl of the Petite Heure Minute Mother-of-Pearl brings various things to mind:the gleam of a star, the perfect balance of classical architecture and the sumptuous quality of precious fabrics. Its extreme delicacy goes hand in hand with the difficulty of finding a material that is perfectly homogeneous in color.
A technical as well as an aesthetic challenge, these three new models are a trilogy bearing the Jaquet Droz signature.
