JAQUET DROZ AVENTURINE DIALS - OCTOBER 2021 NEWS

The Celestial Beauty of Aventurine

This month we highlight the beautifully crafted aventurine dials of our Jaquet Droz collection, featured in the Grand Seconde, Petite Heure Minute and Lady 8 collections. 

Aventurine is a beautiful semi-precious stone that is actually a form of quartz. It comes in a range of colors with watches favouring the deep blue form of the mineral.

What makes aventurine special is that the deep blue forms of the mineral, when used as a background, offer the look of the Milky Way out in the night sky. There are small shiny mineral inclusions in aventurine that sparkle like stars against the deep sky blue. Here we showcase several of our beautiful Jaquet Droz timepieces featuring their stunning aventurine dials.
