The symbol of infinity and completeness, the figure 8, Jaquet Droz’s lucky number has always been present on the dial of the Grande Seconde. A permanent source of inspiration, it appears here for the first time on the case and the buckle of a very feminine model, bound to appeal to more than one lady with its playful side and jewelry.
The bezel intertwined with a gem-set ribbon highlights the curves of the watch, whose simplicity and refinement catch the eye. The effects of volume and depth of the crown enhance the rounded shape of the case, while the domed sapphire glass, the dial and the hands accentuates the three-dimensionality of this timepiece.
A last coquettish touch: at its summit, a pearl or a round precious stone accentuates the precious aspect of the watch. Its owner finds herself irresistibly drawn to touch this ornament that matches the dial of her choice, and turn it with her finger. In order to give the Lady 8 more fluid lines, the lugs have given way to an alligator strap attached to the case, which comes in gem-set white or red gold or stainless steel.
The new folding clasp, specially created for this model, also takes the shape of a figure of eight, reaffirming the striking identity of the Lady 8 on the inside of the wrist.
It was one of the few complications yet to grace the Grande Seconde. Now the monopusher chronograph makes its grand entrance into the Jaquet Droz collection, equipped with an exclusive movement. An inaugural, limited series piece is complemented by three permanent additions to the collection.
On September 6. Mr. Christian Lattmann, Jaquet Droz CEO, and Mr. Fong Wing Ngai, Macau Timepiece Museum curator, were joined by distinguished guests of the brand as well as media to celebrate the inauguration of the exhibition. The master of watch restoration from Jaquet Droz, Mr. Boillat has presented in exclusivity the Singing Bird Snuffbox, created in the 18th century.
The Grande Seconde Quantième now features a modern, tasteful and spirited satin-brushed sunray finish, and is available in a diameter of 39 mm or 43 mm.
