Two stylish subdials – one indicating seconds, the other hours and minutes – come together to give birth to a figure 8, the symbol of success and infinity. On this sleek dial, highlighted by a gold ring secured with blued steel screws, all the fantasies of Jaquet Droz are played out.
The surprise comes from the design but also from the stone. Jaquet Droz has travelled a lot to finally get one of the rarest stone called the pietersit. Found in 1962 in Namibia in Africa by Sid Pieters, the stone is very unique, subtil and really appreciated due to its wide range of colors.
The blues range from a baby blue to a darknight midnight blue gives intensity and depth to the dial of the Grande Seconde Circled. The diamonds on the circle of the eight bring lights like stars in the night sky.
Like a canvas where wonderfully mad designs take shape, the dial of the Grande Seconde Circled Pietersit, provides a unique vehicle for taking dreams and desires to new heights of intensity, transcending aesthetic conventions to embrace horizons as yet unknown.
The Maison unveils the new radically innovative aesthetic of its masterpiece, whose tourbillon is revealed through meticulous geometry.
For the ninth consecutive time, Jaquet Droz is proud to donate a unique piece of its own creation, designed exclusively for Only Watch, a charity sale to benefit the Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies (Monegasque Association against Muscular Dystrophy), and featuring a degree of technical ambition and aesthetic never-before achieved: A Grande Seconde Skelet-One Tourbillon adorned with a plique-à-jour enamel dial.
Issued in eight pieces to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the founder Pierre Jaquet-Droz, the Bird Repeater, an automaton with a minute repeater, embodies the essence of the House. Its dial in white mother-of-pearl and black onyx features appliqués in 18K red gold. Multiple bird animations, eggs hatching and the river in the background breathe life into this creation. This weave of intricate animations, completely engraved and painted by hand, resonates with a minute repeater, which is housed at the heart of its 18K red gold case in 47mm, one of fine watchmaking's most virtuoso complications.
