Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Skelet-One Only Watch

Jaquet Droz is supporting Only Watch for the 7th consecutive edition by donating a unique piece.

“Time is money,” wrote Benjamin Franklin, one of the founding fathers of the United States of America. Jaquet Droz has once again chosen to donate its time to Only Watch to help the celebrated charity auction raise as much money as possible. The brand donate a one-of-a-kind piece: a Grande Seconde numerus clausus 01/01 that will go under the hammer in Geneva on November 9th.

Jaquet Droz has been a sponsor of Only Watch since the beginning and donated to all seven editions. The proceeds of the auction go to fund research into Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a degenerative condition with genetic causes that affects thousands of children and young adults worldwide. In recent years Only Watch has spearheaded fundraising efforts to fight the condition. Of almost $40 million raised by the charity, 99% has gone to fund research. The auction is held every two years and has been a huge success time and again thanks to the generous sponsorship of watchmaking brands.

In 2019, Jaquet Droz has chosen to donate an exclusive variation of its new Grande Seconde Skelet-One Ceramic — a piece that marks a watershed in the centuries-old history of the Grande Seconde. In this one-of-a-kind edition, the rail-track, the gold hour, minute and seconds hands, and the rolled-edge hand-made strap are all reinterpreted in red.

Contrasting with the black ceramic of the case and hour ring, red has been chosen as the color of love — and the flag of Monaco, where the charity is based. The Only Watch traveling exhibition will visit no less than 10 cities next fall, affording collectors from around the world an opportunity to admire this one-of-a-kind timepiece, the Grande Seconde Skelet-One Ceramic for Only Watch.
