Meet Jaquet Droz Eclipse Onyx Watch

Mar 21, 2012
The world of exclusive watchmaking welcomes a newcomer the Jaquet Droz Eclipse Onyx watch, demonstrating nice contrasts of materials and shades.

The dial of the new Jaquet Droz watch is rendered in black onyx. It catches the glance by the moon-phase complication presented via eight rhodiumed star-shaped appliques and one rhodiumed moon applique - the moon surrounded by the stars. The smiling face of the moon is overshadowed by a racket-like piece, also carved from black onyx.

The Eclipse Onyx watch is powered by an automatic movement - the Jaquet Droz 6553L2 calibre. The double-barrel mechanism, incorporating 26 jewels, operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and offers a 68-hour power reserve. It animates the following functions - hours, minutes, day, month, date and moon phases.

The 43 mm case is crafted from stainless steel. The case-back displays an engraving of the individual series number. The timepiece is 30-meter water-resistant.

The time is indicated with help of rhodiumed hour and minute hands. The central pointer-type date hand is also rhodiumed. The day and month windows are positioned at 12 oclock.

The Jaquet Droz Eclipse Onyx watch is secured to the wrist on a black rolled-edge alligator leather strap equipped with a steel pin buckle.
