Jaquet Droz Lady 8 Petite
The Lady 8 is transformed into a more intimate version: the Lady 8 Petite.
The Lady 8 Petite preserves the attributes of its predecessor: an original creation that features the brand’s emblematic “8” design. Its rounded case is accentuated by a domed sapphire crystal. At noon, a matching stone – different in each model – rolls under the finger.
The Lady 8 Petite’s dial is ever so slightly redesigned to guarantee perfect readability. Two hands sweep over its motion work, driven by a self-winding mechanical movement with a 38-hour power reserve, decorated with a guilloché oscillating weight with a fanned design.

The three versions featuring an 18-karat red gold case display an altogether different personality, offering the possibility of a single-wrap strap in taupe alligator leather or, for a more jewelry look, a new bracelet developed specially for the Lady 8 Petite. It was conceived by Jaquet Droz to favor flexibility and comfort in an original mineral composition.
In a first version, the links are individually set with diamonds, within which authentic Akoya pearls shimmer. With a natural white color, they complement the mother-of-pearl dial and cabochon crown of this Lady 8 Petite.

The second version of the red gold Lady 8 Petite bracelet is adorned with jade. Moreover, this version is issued in a strictly limited Numerus Clausus edition of eight pieces. Its supple bracelet is entirely set with diamonds, within which gleam bright green jade beads.
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 >
