The Petite Heure Minute is a watch that immediately catches the eye. With its off-center hours and minutes subdial at 12 o’clock, this icon of Swiss timepieces has become the playing field for the craftsmen of the twin-star brand: a blank page constantly reinvented through Jaquet Droz's prism of creativity and sensitivity.
In the grand tradition of embellishing dials with precious jewels that Jaquet Droz does with panache, this time astorite is showcased – a rare gem from the United States. One solid, sized and hand-polished piece makes the result visually spectacular! On a pink background sparkling with gold and silver inclusions, and black flecks and veins, the dial is transformed into an authentic tableau of contemporary art worn on the wrist in 35 mm. The legend of John Astor becomes a part of Jaquet Droz's own legend; astorite, a stone named in Astor's honor, comes from the Colorado mine that belonged to this entrepreneur who perished on the Titanic.
Limited to 28 pieces, this rare and precious watch, the Petite Heure Minute Astorite, epitomizes feminine elegance. The pink of the astorite reflects the richness of the red gold case, ring and hands, and the soft waviness of white mother-of-pearl. Illuminated with diamonds set in the bezel and lugs, the Petite Heure Minute Astorite immediately captivates with its clean lines, true to the spirit of Jaquet Droz, where real luxury pulsates with sheer beauty.
Located along the bay of Hong Kong, in the heart of the luxurious Harbour City shopping mall, the new Jaquet Droz store features an entirely new design, blending tones of black, beige and gray. A special meeting place for collectors and enthusiasts of Fine Watchmaking, who can now discover the Jaquet Droz universe in an atmosphere marked by modernity and elegance, just like its creations.
An ode to life and perpetual new beginnings, Jaquet Droz unveiled its 2019 Novelties comprising of the most sophisticated Magic Lotus Automaton, two new complications from the Grande Seconde Collection – the Grande Seconde Dual Time and the Grande Seconde Chronograph, as well as several timepieces from the Lady 8 Petite and Petite Heure Minute collections.
The Swiss luxury brand enriches its collection of timepieces combining watchmaking experties, artistic sense and creavitiy.
