Eight Faced

Bespoke - - SHOOT -

The fig­ure of eight has been a source of in­spi­ra­tion for Ja­quet Droz ever since 1784, when Pierre Ja­quet-droz de­signed his first Grande Se­conde pocket watch, boast­ing an over­size sub­dial on the lower half of the dial and a smaller sub­dial above it. This year, the brand’s flag­ship model gets a new com­pli­ca­tion in the form of the Grande Se­conde Moon Phase, Equipped with a 68-hour power re­serve, its most im­pres­sive as­pect is a 135-tooth moon phase gear (rather than a con­ven­tional 59-tooth one), which means it need only be ad­justed once every 122 years. The model is avail­able in three ver­sions: steel with opa­line dial (15,200 USD), steel with onyx dial (17,300 USD) and 18-karat red gold with enamel dial (28,900 USD).
