The figure eight, Jaquet Droz's lucky number, has been regarded as the ultimate touchstone by the watchmaker from La Chaux-de-Fonds since the Age of Enlightenment. A symbol of balance and perfection, it graces the face of the Grande Seconde, the brand's emblematic timepiece.
While the Lady 8's general architecture remains true to its original design - an uncluttered dial crowned with a round pearl or precious stone - the designers have let themselves go in a veritable extravaganza of different materials.
With the two ceramic versions in black and white ceramic, the Lady 8 became casual and chic. Simple but elegant, sporty and dressed for all the occasions. The revolving ball is also made of ceramic to respect the signature of the dial. Women will be able to roll it contemplating the beauty of their wrist. Because to finish the case in a very feminine and luxury way, the top of the 8 is paved with 48 diamonds for 0.53 carats.
Also available in red gold and mother-of-pearl, this version is directly inspired by the jewelry universe. Precious metal with a 18-carat red gold case, domed white mother-of-pearl dial, revolving white pearl ball, everything is made to think it as a true jewel. The colors and the shape made this version unique and truly refined. To enhance the Lady 8 red gold and mother-of-pearl version, 175 diamonds will circle the dial and the ball and finish to seduce you.
The Lady 8 offers us so many options to embrace, each in their own way, all the facets of contemporary femininity, from the purest and simplest to the most flamboyant.
It's an invitation to speculate, to reveal, and as such defines the spirit of glamor and luxury that imbues the new Lady 8 of Jaquet Droz.
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.
