Eternal radiance: Grande Seconde Tourbillon by Jaquet Droz

In the anticipation of the worlds’ largest watches and jewelery fair Baselworld 2017, Jaquet Droz watch house presents the new model of the legendary Grande Seconde. Discover Grande Seconde Tourbillon Mother-of-Pearl, combining the top-level technical design and aesthetic perfection.
Grande Seconde is one of the iconic models, which have marked the start of Jaquet Droz timeline: this unique watch created in the Enlightenment, has changed man's relation to time once for all. It was a sequence of creative impulses, desires and aspirations for Pierre Jaquet-Droz that he reflected in Grande Seconde model.

Today, Jaquet Droz offers its new interpretation for the fair ladies. This time, the craftsmen of the watch house turned to mother of pearl, the fragile and delicate material that creates unique light effects.
Special effect occurs due to the contrast of iridescent nacre surface and pink gold of the 39mm case inlaid with full-cut diamonds, as well as due to the plated ring around the dial and deployment buckle. Roman numerals of hour & minute indexes and hands of blued steel add austere classic beauty to the timepiece’s design. The watch case with an elegant white satin strap hides gold rotor decorated with white mother of pearl, and movement bridges with fanned Côtes de Genève pattern.

It is also perfect in terms of technical design. Grande Seconde Tourbillon Mother-of-Pearl is equipped with tourbillon complication. Silicon pallet horns & balance spring of the model provide ultimate precision.
The timepiece combining complexity and elegance, exquisite design and perfect technical realization, has 7 days’ power reserve and released in a limited series of 88 copies. This figure is not accidental. The dial of Grande Seconde Tourbillon Mother-of-Pearl, which seem to be imbued with the light of mother of pearl &  diamonds, is reminiscent of  8 figure - the inverted infinity sign.
Grande Seconde Tourbillon Mother-of-Pearl will be available in the boutique of the brand in Petrovsky Passage in April.
