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.
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.
