Since its creation, the Grande Seconde has always been an endless source of inspiration, to the point of becoming a brand emblem. In 2011, Jaquet Droz launched the Grande Seconde Quantième, a Grande Seconde in stainless steel with a date display. This year, the line sees the arrival of two new versions with an ever more contemporary design.

In colors that catch the eye, the blue or chocolate dials enhance the Geneva stripes with a play of hues shimmering in the changing light. Simplicity rules, with an elegant display of the date and the time on these 43 mm models: the Arabic and Roman numerals of previous models have given way to stunning baton markers. These latest developments featured on the Grande Seconde Quantième are a demonstration of how Jaquet Droz continuously rethinks those models which have built its legend and made its name.
Both models are in stores!
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.
