Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Off-Centered
Jaquet Droz presents its Grande Seconde Off-Centered model in four versions with a diameter of 39 mm.
The Grande Seconde Off-Centered watch is famous for its the two intersecting dials forming a figure 8: a symbol of completion, balance and infinity. A lucky number for the brand known by its twin stars.
And now there’s a new 8. It is at once the same and completely different, available in four new models. The similarity comes from its lines, interlinking circles, elegant curves and perfect readability. And yet a slight off-centering gives its shape a twist. The hours-and-minutes dial is now located at two o’clock, with the seconds at seven o’clock. Dynamic and modern, with the delicacy characteristic of Jaquet Droz, the Grande Seconde offers an unrivaled sophistication highlighted by its new format. Its case with a diameter of 39 mm means that it is now as much at home on women’s wrists as on men’s. It offers everyone the elegant mystery of two mineral dials, handmade by the craftsmen of Jaquet Droz. A choice between the deep monochrome black of onyx or a starry sky in aventurine bordered by a diamond-set bezel. These two versions are joined by a model with a silvery opaline dial as well as a model in Grand Feu enamel with a unique texture and coloring of ivory.

The four models are equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement with a silicon balance spring and pallet horn And as a finishing touch, in a detail that connoisseurs are sure to notice, the winding crown has moved and is now positioned at four o’clock. A charming shift that reflects both the spirit of these models, each engraved with an individual number.
