On the occasion of the 280th anniversary, Jaquet Droz invites everyone to feel the magical attraction of time expressed in exclusive items that combine uncommon design, exquisite materials, and unique watch technology. Grande Seconde Moon Black Enamel: The Ode to the Moon Bold ideas, avant-garde design, and innovative approach are the values which have become an integral part of the Jaquet Droz’s “genetic code,” and they were embodied in the Grande Seconde collection. In honor of the 280th Jaquet Droz’s anniversary, particular attention is paid to the legendary original model. The watch is a dedication to the celestial body which combines heavenly aesthetics and agelong mastery. Grande Seconde Moon Black Enamel recalls the times when people could realize the change of months only by the changes of the Moon’s contours. The new model of the Grande Seconde line with black enamel dial premiered at the Baselworld 2018, and it praises the favorite celestial body of all watchmakers with an additional complex function - the indicator of the moon phase to remind of the mysterious interaction of the Moon and Earth. The new masterpiece by Jaquet Droz, which you can’t help admiring, reminds us that watchmaking started when people rethought the motion of celestial bodies and then invented a modern time measurement system. Grande Seconde Skelet-One: The Ode to Mechanics The mechanism of the Grande Seconde Skelet-One, the new interpretation of the legendary watch, is literally saturated with light. The premiere of Grande Seconde Skelet-One, which reflects the radical stylistic shifts in the brand’s history, is dedicated to the 280th anniversary of the brand. The model differs from the entire watch line of the brand by the transparency of the mechanism. This approach is embodied by brightly highlighted bridges, marks, and the empty space between them. Hours, minutes, and seconds show up clearly against the new transparent design. Grande Seconde Ceramic Clous de Paris: The Ode to the Sky The Grande Seconde collection reinterprets modern watchmaking by new clockwork combining the strength and purity of the lines. The famous model by the brand was interpreted in a black ceramic version with a blue finish “Clous de Paris.” The dial is decorated with the legendary “eight,” the main symbol of Jaquet Droz, which combines the Roman and Arabic digits. The ceramic of the case and dial is incredibly durable and scratchproof, and it retains its gloss and color in the long run, since the watch is synonymous with infinity. Lady 8 Petite: The Ode to Femininity and Elegance The new Lady 8 Petite model of only 25 mm in diameter, released in 5 different versions, is in line with all the latest trends. So, in accordance with modern trends, the watch strap of black or blue grained calf wraps up the wrist.
