The Grande Heure GMT pays tribute to Pierre Jaquet-Droz’s many travels with clean lines, a classic design and precious material. This latest model, featuring perfect legibility for two time zones, flawlessly meets the demands of the modern and stylish globe trotter. It offers a simple, precise way to read the time in two time zones.
The 24 indexes in Arabic numerals set around a Grand Feu enamel dial make it easy to see all the hours of the day in two cities.
Never before has a watch presented such a clear, effortless indication of two time zones. This technological development is enhanced by the majestic hands in the form of a compass, a detail which hints at the navigational instruments used by sailors of another era. The red hand indicates local time while the blued steel hand shows the time at the destination. When the two hands come together in the same time zone they merge into a single, bicolored indication of the exact time.
Jaquet Droz has shown its commitment to simplicity and practicality in the Grande Heure GMT by boldly choosing a time-setting system with a single crown. The result is a watch design of distinctive purity, perfectly combining the ivory color of the dial with the rich red gold of the case.
Jaquet Droz celebrates its 280th anniversary in collaboration with the Swiss retailer Kirchhofer.
Over centuries it became a legend, serving imperial whims before returning to its place of birth – almost by accident. The “Singing Bird Clock” by Jaquet Droz is a one-of-a-kind story in the history of watchmaking.
In a new architectural interpretation of its icon, the Grande Seconde Skelet-One lets light into the heart of its mechanics.
