Jaquet Droz - Three winning sets

Jaquet Droz Three winning sets

As the brand with the famous miniaturized songbirds celebrates the 300th anniversary of its founder’s birth this year, it is nurturing spring with a color ful trilogy of Grande Seconde Skelet-One models

The iconic design of its 8-shaped dial is sculpted in sapphire, decorated in different ways from one version to the next, with the gold hands echoing the shade of the hand-crafted rolled-edge strap. The gray ceramic hours and minutes circle strikes a subtle contrast with the plasma ceramic case, featuring metallic reflections created by a firing in a high-temperature furnace. This model offers fascinating glimpses of the movement, delicately assembled by watchmaking artisans and equipped with a silicon balance-spring and pallet horns. For Jaquet Droz, which enjoys the privilege of revisiting three centuries of watchmaking heritage, this collection has become its avant-garde ambassador. In which cheerful and modern color would you like your limited edition?
