The Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde SW with figure of eight design.
Grande Seconde… At Jaquet Droz, these two words capture three centuries of watch making history, a deep attachment to tradition and ongoing innovation. the Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde SW is not only a flagship model but also celebrates its favorite number: 8. The ultra-modern “figure eight” design formed by the two dials of this watch has been revisited regularly since 2008. It explores new horizons by bringing a subtle combination of materials, textures and volumes into play.
The master dial-makers at Jaquet Droz chose black ceramic, scratch-proof and inalterable, for the fluted bezel of the Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde SW Steel – Ceramic, whose every groove is a technical exploit. The uniform brilliance of the black is emphasized by the gleaming steel, worked with painstaking care to highlight the architectural purity of this dial adorned with indicators and a hand painted blue with glowing Super-LumiNova.
Playing on the interaction between matte and polished surfaces, the Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde SW Red Gold – Titanium combines the great lightness and strength of titanium with the matte radiance of fine-brushed red gold. Made of woven carbon fibers, the geometrical motif ornamenting the background of the dial reflects the light in a different way every time the wearer moves his wrist. At night, the diffuse luminosity of white Super-LumiNova paint bears nocturnal witness to this unusual alloying of the legacy of history with the need to reinvent it.
Both of the Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde SW models are in stores now.
