Jaquet Droz: the sign of infinity
Jaquet Droz watch brand offers four new versions of the Grande Seconde Off-Centered model featuring 39 mm case. This watch is a real legend, told by a skilled watchmaker Jacques Droz, who fascinated the Enlightenment with his perception of time.
The thought of making seconds’ measuring more important than hours’ and minutes’ measuring might seem strange in those far-off days. Nevertheless, the craftsmen of the manufactory embodied it in life, creating one of the most perfect dials. It consists of two small dials that form figure eight – the mascot of Jaquet Droz  and the symbol of completeness, balance and infinity.
There is the only common thing in four new original interpretations of the model – it is the curve line of the two circles with indices. However, the silhouette of the eight figure is slightly shifted: the hour and minute counter is at "2 o’clock" position, and the second counter is at "7 o'clock" position. The smallest detail that changes everything. The crown is shifted to "4 o’clock", which gives special charm of the classics to the new models.
Thanks to the new 39 mm case the new Grande Seconde models can easily replenish both man and woman look. The dials are handmade of deep black onyx & blue aventurine by Jaquet Droz craftsmen. The bezel is inlaid with diamonds. Individual number is engraved on each watch.
The models can be ordered in the boutique of the brand in Petrovsky Passage.
