A refined piece of timeless elegance, this limited edition Lady 8 Petite is an ode to romance in red: the color of passion.
Dainty, discreet and delicately feminine, the Lady 8 Petite by Jaquet Droz is an ideal showcase for the unique geometric crystal structure of the mineral.
Issued in a limited series (Numerus Clausus of 28 pieces), the signature figure 8 dial reveals a ruby heart topped with a ruby ball bearing that swivels freely, slipping through the fingers like passing time. A bezel set with 68 diamonds coils around this gleaming fairytale of a timepiece and is complemented by a buckle set with 23 diamonds. This 25 mm piece is powered by a Jaquet Droz self-winding movement. The red gold oscillating mass is engraved with a wave pattern that echoes the romance of its beating heart.
“Some watches tell time, some tell a story”
After three years of work, Jaquet Droz and John Howe have developed an Art Watch dedicated to emotion, wonder and fantasy. Draped in gold and rare stones, their dragon has a record 9 distinct animations. Inside a 43 mm case, the piece is entirely handmade and can be customized almost without limit by the client. Thanks to a Studio in the heart of the Jaquet Droz head quarter, clients will be offered an immersive phygital experience that will allow them to witness the live creation of their timepieces. There is no series to be announced, only unique pieces.
