Since it was first established in 1738, Jaquet Droz has perpetuated the spirit of innovation and aesthetic refinement of its founder, Pierre Jaquet-droz. Jaquet Droz timepieces have always combined design, materials and expertise with the most unexpected mechanical refinements.
1. The Grande Seconde Skelet-one marks a real stylistic turning point in the history of the Jaquet Droz Ateliers de Haute Horlogerie. This creation allows light to penetrate the inner depths of the mechanism on the brand’s iconic model, while preserving the “8” shape that forms its aesthetic signature. The back of the watch offers a clear view of the components, including the double barrel and a hollowed oscillating weight on which the watch’s number is engraved. 2. For its 280th anniversary the brand pays tribute to the Grande Seconde first brought back to life in 2002. With the new Grande Seconde Tribute, limited to 88 pieces, it is the first time a wristwatch version is offered in yellow gold. The model is adorned with a dial in Grand Feu enamel, a centuries-old technique that remains difficult to achieve, and to which only a handful of watchmakers can lay claim. 3. Lady 8 Flower is a limited edition of 8 pieces and features a floral motif that honors the naturalist tradition of the brand. It showcases a lace-like bouquet of flowers carved from mother-of-pearl. The automaton is positioned at the top of the timepiece, animated by a pusher at 2 o’clock. When the pusher is pressed, it activates a lotus flower with gold petals that open to reveal a diamond. 4. An iconic model in the Jaquet Droz philosophy, the Grande Seconde Moon Black Enamel features a new watchmaking complication: a moon phase display. The astronomical moon phase requires correction only once every 122 years and 46 days.
