This Holiday Season, Jaquet Droz invites you to discover its special selection of iconic and enchanting timepieces. Dive head first into the magic of time with vibrant creations that promise to transport you and yours into the world of Swiss fine watchmaking.
The Grande Seconde Skelet-One marks a real stylistic turning point in the history of the Jaquet Droz Ateliers de Haute Horlogerie. This creation allows light to penetrate the inner depths of the mechanism on the brand's iconic model, while preserving the "8" shape that forms its aesthetic signature. The back of the watch offers a clear view of the components, including the double barrel and a hollowed oscillating weight on which the watch's number is engraved.
A symbol of completeness and balance, the Grande Seconde has constantly been revisited to meet the expectations and desires of each era. Today, the Grande Seconde Quantième is available in gold or stainless steel – the tip of its hand indicating the date with a touch of timeless elegance.
The single push-button chronograph is equipped with an exclusive movement built around a column wheel, in keeping with the great watchmaking tradition of chronograph design. It also has a silicon balance spring, which means its movement is immune to both magnetic fields and temperature variations. The volumes and proportions of this movement have been designed to suit the unique geometry of the Grande Seconde.
The ornamental iridescent glass paints the picture of a night sky sparkling with stars. From its intense blue emanates a depth that has been captured by Jaquet Droz. In constant motion, its stars shine with a soft and comforting light.
