The figure eight, Jaquet Droz's lucky number, has been regarded as the ultimate touchstone by the watchmaker from La Chaux-de-Fonds since the Age of Enlightenment. A symbol of balance and perfection, it graces the face of the Grande Seconde, the brand's emblematic timepiece.
While the Lady 8's general architecture remains true to its original design - an uncluttered dial crowned with a round pearl or precious stone - the designers have let themselves go in a veritable extravaganza of different materials.
With the two ceramic versions in black and white ceramic, the Lady 8 became casual and chic. Simple but elegant, sporty and dressed for all the occasions. The revolving ball is also made of ceramic to respect the signature of the dial. Women will be able to roll it contemplating the beauty of their wrist. Because to finish the case in a very feminine and luxury way, the top of the 8 is paved with 48 diamonds for 0.53 carats.
Also available in red gold and mother-of-pearl, this version is directly inspired by the jewelry universe. Precious metal with a 18-carat red gold case, domed white mother-of-pearl dial, revolving white pearl ball, everything is made to think it as a true jewel. The colors and the shape made this version unique and truly refined. To enhance the Lady 8 red gold and mother-of-pearl version, 175 diamonds will circle the dial and the ball and finish to seduce you.
The Lady 8 offers us so many options to embrace, each in their own way, all the facets of contemporary femininity, from the purest and simplest to the most flamboyant.
It's an invitation to speculate, to reveal, and as such defines the spirit of glamor and luxury that imbues the new Lady 8 of Jaquet Droz.
The Grande Seconde by Jaquet Droz gets reinvented with new colors in an interpretation at once modern and alive. Marrying contemporary materials with reinterpreted age-old finishes, this watchmaking classic bursts into the 21st century.
In every family there is a common raison d'être that spurs the clan to thrive and grow. So it was in the time of Pierre Jaquet-Droz. Trained in clockmaking by older relatives, he worked with his father-in-law and later his son Henri-Louis. Together they pooled their creative genius and avant-garde vision of clockmaking.
It is in a tropical atmosphere that Jaquet Droz has presented its new 2018 collection in the heart of Paris.
