JAQUET DROZ NOVELTY ARRIVALS - MARCH 2021 NEWS
Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Novelties
Recently welcomed into contemporary Fine Watchmaking and now J Farren-Price are several impressive new Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde timepieces.
New Grande Seconde Skelet-One Ceramic
First we present the new Grande Seconde Skelet-One Ceramic limited edition model presented in three colours, green, blue and yellow. Each colour is a limited edition of 28 pieces. We have the green version arriving early April 2021 with the other colours, subject to availability. To register your interest contact us here.
Sculptural, architectural and audacious, the Grande Seconde Skelet-One has, in only a matter of years, become an avant-garde ambassador for Jaquet Droz. An inherently modern and bold design which adds a new dimension to this so-called “skeleton” watchmaking creation.
Now iconic, its spirit remains unchanged: a large figure “8” formed by an entirely sapphire dial along with indexes and hands in 18K gold suspended above a brushed hours and minutes ring.
At 6 o’clock, the large seconds hand that soars over the sapphire creates the illusion that it is floating, while directly below the tiniest details of a hand-crafted movement can be admired. It is powered by a silicon balance spring and pallet lugs, a double barrel with nearly three days of power reserve (68 hours), including an openwork oscillating weight in 18K white gold which is nestled in the rim of the 41.5 mm case.
Two New Grande Second Quantiéme Models
We have also just received the new Grand Seconde Quantiéme in Titanium Gray and Grande Seconde Quantiéme in Silver both with 41mm case and date function.
The Titanium gray version features a sand-blasted dial, 18-karat white gold indexes, applique with blue treatment and stainless steel case. It has a pointer-type date display at 6 o'clock featured in blue with lacquered red tip. The Silver dial version features silver sand-blasted dial with applique gray treatment. It also includes a date function in grey with lacquered red tip.
