Jaquet Droz - Petite Heure Minute Mother-of-Pearl

Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Mother-of-Pearl

Jaquet Droz unveils a new timepiece featuring a minimalistic beauty available with a diamond-set or non-set bezel.

The Petite Heure Minute Mother-of-Pearl harks back to its signature off-center displays with a single circle for the hours and minutes positioned at 12 o’clock. The two blue hands swinging inside match the hand-made rolled-edged alligator leather strap.

White mother-of-pearl fills in the dial with iridescent gray and white reflections that add to the look of the moon’s nocturnal glow. It is the luminescence for the surprisingly thin 35 mm steel case. Finished with a white gold ring, it is an aesthetic expression of the meticulous attention to detail Jaquet Droz lavishes on its creations. The metals shine with slightly different intensities that complement one another to accent the distinctive properties of the mother-of-pearl on the dial.

This new Petite Heure Minute model exists in two versions with one featuring a bezel studded with 160 diamonds (0.97 carat). As a final touch for the white gold, steel and mother-of-pearl, the diamonds cast flecks of light on the case’s contours for a piece with rare radiance. This model is a classy alternative to the gold and steel version that is more modern and streamlined. Both versions are powered by a self-winding mechanical movement with double barrels that provide up to a 68-hour power reserve.
