Jaquet Droz - New vision

Jaquet Droz New vision

Focus on the Tourbillon Skelet Sapphire

With Alain Delamuraz at the head of the brand last year, Jaquet Droz has taken a radical turn at all levels of its organization, which is also reflected in a transformation of its offering. While the double figure-8 large seconds dial and the crown motif reflect the DNA of Jaquet Droz, this exceptional timepiece radiates a dramatically different personality. In the wake of Skelet-One, which modernized the brand while opening up whole new horizons, the Tourbillon Skelet Saphir takes it into a whole new dimension where exclusivity reigns supreme. In addition to its fabulous design, it is distinguished by the world’s first sapphire case composed of only three elements (case middle, case back and bezel), entirely devoid of screws. Its self-winding movement has an eight-day power reserve! Three centuries after the founder’s birth, Jaquet Droz is enjoying a new lease on life.

The brand

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.
