The Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde is immediately identifiable by its two off-centered dials that describe a figure eight with great purity of line. A uniquely incomparable timepiece since its inception, it is regularly reinterpreted by the brand’s artisans.
In 2008, Jaquet Droz launched the Grande Seconde SW, a sporty reworking of this iconic model that has only become more successful over the years.
In 2014, Jaquet Droz reveals the Grande Seconde SW 45 mm in three new versions inspired by intrinsically contemporary colors: gray, anthracite gray and blue. The color is actually the perfect way to give more character to your timepiece. The gray is very light and would be the perfect color to match with everything. The anthracite gray will insure elegance to his owner and finally the blue will make your dream comes true...
The Grande Seconde SW 45 mm are graced with a new Côtes de Genève decoration to give an ever greater aura of luxury. A series of regular lines creates the typical pattern known as Swiss watchmaking DNA and gives it unprecedented depth.
The members of this beautiful trio all have alligator leather straps in a color to match the dial that exudes elegance hand in hand with a sense of luxury that increasingly asserts itself. It embodies, in change, the abiding spirit of Jaquet Droz.
The Grande Seconde SW 45 mm is now available in store.
A warmed up stage, a drum kit, a few guitars and a harmonica: “It’s only rock’n’roll!” Today, Jaquet Droz unveils the first out of the 23 unique timepieces to retrace the world of the Rolling Stones through motion. Beside the arm of a record player that hovers over a platinum album replica (the power reserve), a scene depicts their signature instruments in miniature paintings and gold thread. The external disc rotates up to 8 consecutive times for 30 seconds and is adorned with the albums that the collector will choose for his unique timepiece. At 9 o'clock, the iconic tongue beats rhythmically, from left to right and from top to bottom. “And I like it!”
After three years of work, Jaquet Droz and John Howe have developed an Art Watch dedicated to emotion, wonder and fantasy. Draped in gold and rare stones, their dragon has a record 9 distinct animations. Inside a 43 mm case, the piece is entirely handmade and can be customized almost without limit by the client. Thanks to a Studio in the heart of the Jaquet Droz head quarter, clients will be offered an immersive phygital experience that will allow them to witness the live creation of their timepieces. There is no series to be announced, only unique pieces.
