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.
With the novel color on an up-to-the-minute model, the Grande Seconde Quantième is back with a new blue dial that is perfectly on trend. This exclusive new version was crafted to cast multiple reflections and a new light, creating a unique and unmistakably 21st century sensation.
The innovative blue-gray dial is nothing short of intensely avant-garde. Outstretched beams created using the decorative sunray technique radiate the dial towards the edges of the timepiece, giving it a fresh glow. This iconic piece for the brand stands out with the distinctive off-center display showing the hours and minutes at 12 o’clock, and the grande seconde at 6 o’clock coupled with a date calendar. The dial's sunrays originate here and reach out towards the bezel. The sunrays offset at 6 o’clock cast a bluish light on the dial.
Jaquet Droz has expanded this new look to include a version with indexes in 18 carat white gold that curve toward the outside of the dial. It has a slightly different reflection than the steel on the case. This juxtaposition of material accentuates the new Grande Seconde's nuanced shades and turns it into a source of light.
The final stroke of design ingenuity is the red tip on the date calendar's hand, which makes it easier to read. Jaquet Droz has also created a separate space for it on the dial.
Modernized yet steeped in legacy, the Grande Seconde Quantième Satin-Brushed Blue is powered by a movement with a silicon balance spring and pallet lugs. It is impervious to both shocks and temperature fluctuations. This timepiece comes in two diameters: The 39 mm combines timeless style and refinement, and the 43 mm creates a bolder contemporary look. It is ideal for the active fashion-forward collector who appreciates Fine Watchmaking that's equal parts offbeat and inventive.
“Some watches tell time. Some tell a story”
The brand is shining the spotlight on its Ateliers d’Art by featuring four variations of its Petite Heure Minute watch that celebrate the sign of the Rat. This animal thus marks the start of a new cycle in the Chinese calendar.
In November 2019, Jaquet Droz has specially invited guests to participate in tours where they have been able to experience microscopically painted ‘art workshops’ and have personally been able to design their own, unique watch faces under the guidance of a Swiss expert in the microscopic painting of enamel.
Jaquet Droz and Johnson Watch Company invited around 50 VIP guests to a special cocktail in New Delhi, India.
