Jaquet Droz Lady 8 Éclat
When Jaquet Droz thought about women, a sparkling and shiny eight came to mind...
The figure eight, Jaquet Droz's lucky number, has been regarded as the ultimate touchstone by the watchmaker from La Chaux-de-Fonds since the Age of Enlightenment.
While the Lady 8's general architecture remains true to its original design - an uncluttered dial crowned with a precious stone - the craftsmen have given themselves complete freedom in a veritable extravaganza of different materials.
The dial is made of gemstones with grey gold and diamonds (1.49 carats). At the summit of the case is placed a pearl of diamonds (1.4 carats).
The watch houses the Jaquet Droz 1153 calibre, a self-winding mechanical movement, with double barrel and 22-carat rhodium-treated white gold oscillating weight.
In order to give the Lady 8 Shiny more fluid lines, the lugs have given way to an alligator strap attached to the case which comes in gem-set white gold for a total of 4.92 carats. The new folding clasp, specially created for this model, also takes the shape of a figure eight and is made of grey gold and diamonds (1.51 carats), reaffirming the striking identity of the Lady 8 on the inside of the wrist.
An elegant, outward-looking philosophy that dates back to the Age of Enlightenment is still at the heart of Jaquet Droz's identity. The fine and rare handcrafts practiced at the company’s workshops produce exquisite miniature works of art and automata that combine the best of design with unprecedented levels of horological know-how.Find out more
