With the Petite Heure Minute 35 mm, Jaquet Droz forges an unconventional steel and mother-of-pearl tribute to contemporary femininity.
For the first time, the workshops of Jaquet Droz have opted for a woman's watch all in steel. In pairing this metal with a new timepiece, it contrasts with the radiant dark blue mother-of-pearl and the light of the stars. The high quality mother-of-pearl is delicately worked and cut into a single disc in an array of hues: royal blue, ultramarine, cobalt or indigo, as the movement of the wrist changes the fall of the light. The eight stars, a signature of the brand, are scattered across the dial in a truly spectacular display, much like the beauty of a night sky.
The harmoniously balanced integral steel bracelet is exceptional; the design is the outcome of long research and precise workmanship. Both a technical and aesthetic challenge, its form is subtly asymmetrical. The different sized links blend into a single line that encircles the wrist. Two diamonds emphasize this timepiece’s impeccable elegance, made to celebrate the beauty of women.
Uniting the splendor of the sun and the mystery of the night, the Petite Heure Minute 35 mm combines the symbols of femininity in this imaginative jewelry timepiece, the new creation in the Élégance Paris collection. This new tribute to the women of today also reflects the best of contemporary watchmaking: a Jaquet Droz 2653 self-winding mechanical movement, a power reserve of 68 hours and a bezel set with 160 diamonds.
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.
As a part of the world tour, on June 8th Jaquet Droz presented Basel Novelties in Hanoi together with the local partner Sam&Sassy Knightsbridge.
