The well-known magazine awarded the Grande Seconde Dual Time with its prize of the watch of the year in the “GMT” category.
The Grande Seconde Dual Time keeps cadence with history, resonating with the rhythm of the journeys made by Pierre Jaquet-Droz in the 18th century. Here is a timepiece that celebrates the magic in a two-beat tempo with a brand new mechanism and elegantly positioned second time zone. Modern and elegant, it represents a gentle evolution in the traditional look of the Grande Seconde.
“Some watches tell time. Some tell a story”
The “Effinger” clock dated from 1783 and signed Jaquet-Droz, has been sold at CHF 256,000.-, which is more than three times the starting bid of CHF 70,000.-, during the Koller auction on March the 31st 2022.
Jaquet Droz and designer Shirley Zhang unveiled their joint minute repeater watch, alongside its NFT counterpart, at the inaugural Shanghai Jiahe winter auction. A first for both Jaquet Droz and the Shanghai Jiahe auction house.
Jaquet Droz celebrates Chinese New Year for the first time with six unique pieces that pair together, each one taking an artistic approach to represent the Tiger’s iconic attributes.
