Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Quantième Satin-Brushed Blue
The Grande Seconde Quantième is back with a new blue dial with satin-brushed sunray finish, and is available in a diameter of 39 mm or 43 mm.
The innovative blue-gray dial is nothing short of intensely avant-garde. Outstretched beams created using the decorative sunray technique radiate the dial towards the edges of the timepiece, giving it a fresh glow. This iconic piece for the brand stands out with the distinctive off-center display showing the hours and minutes at 12 o’clock, and the grande seconde at 6 o’clock coupled with a date calendar. The dial's sunrays originate here and reach out towards the bezel. The sunrays offset at 6 o’clock cast a bluish light on the dial, creating a unique and unmistakably 21st century sensation.

Jaquet Droz has expanded this new look to include 18 carat white gold indexes that curve toward the outside of the dial. With the gold having a slightly different reflection than the steel on the case, this juxtaposition of material accentuates the new Grande Seconde's nuanced shades and turns it into a source of light.
The final stroke of design ingenuity is the red tip on the date calendar's hand, which makes it easier to read. Jaquet Droz has also created a separate space for it on the dial.
Modernized yet steeped in legacy, the Grande Seconde Quantième Satin-Brushed Blue is powered by a the Jaquet Droz 2660Q2.P Calibre, a self-winding mechanical movement with silicon balance spring and pallet horns - a material impervious to both shocks and temperature fluctuations - double barrel, flat bridges, and heavy metal oscillating weight. The movement beats at 28,800 vph and has a 68-hour power reserve.
