Plaza Watch International - - Display Case -

De­spite living in a dig­i­tal world with apps for al­most ev­ery con­ceiv­able need, some things just don’t seem a great deal eas­ier than be­fore. Trav­el­ling is a per­fect ex­am­ple – and we may be have vir­tual board­ing passes on our smart phones now, and be able to check in on­line, but the chore of fre­quent travel does not feel any less ar­du­ous than it ever was. So thank good­ness for the clas­sic and un­com­pli­cated ap­proach used by Ja­quet Droz in this lovely trib­ute to travel – the Grande Heure GMT.

Ideal for long-dis­tance trav­ellers who are of­ten up in the air, this un­der­stated and el­e­gant wrist­watch is re­fresh­ingly sim­plis­tic in show­ing the time in two time zones at a glance. The crisp blued steel hand points out the sec­ond time zone in beau­ti­ful con­trast to the Ivory Grand Feu enamel of the dial. The lo­cal time is dis­played with 18-karat red gold hands.

This is time­keep­ing with clar­ity and ease and by also opt­ing for an un­con­ven­tional sys­tem of a sin­gle crown to ad­just both hands, Ja­quet Droz suc­ceeds in mak­ing the Grande Heure GMT ut­ter sim­plic­ity on your wrist. At the heart of the watch is a me­chan­i­cal au­to­matic Ja­quet Droz 5N50.4 cal­i­bre with 28 jew­els, a 68-hour power re­serve and 22-karat white gold os­cil­lat­ing weight. And the strap – quite sim­ply – a black al­li­ga­tor with hand-rolled edges and an 18-karat red gold buckle.
