The world famous watchmaker Jaquet Droz has recently introduced its new bewitching creation, called Grande Heure Minute Onyx. As the name of the watch suggests, the brand’s qualified craftsmen used onyx for the creation of its dial.
The dark mystery of this remarkable material marries marvelously with the bright gleam of stainless steel employed in manufacturing of the timepiece case. This amazing combination exerts an irresistible attraction on true watch enthusiasts.
Ticking inside the timepiece is a self-winding mechanical movement - Jaquet Droz 1169, equipped with a double barrel and a heavy metal oscillating weight. It incorporates 31 jewels. The movement operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and provides a 68-hour power reserve. It serves to animate the functions of centered hours and minutes, as well as that of small seconds indicated in the counter at 9 o’clock.
The stainless steel case of the new Jaquet Droz watch boasts a diameter of 43 mm. Its back side is engraved with an individual serial number. The timepiece is submersible to 30 meters.
The enchanting onyx dial features an applied ring with rhodium coating. Pointing to the hours, minutes and seconds are rhodium-treated hands.
The Jaquet Droz Grande Heure Minute Onyx watch is teamed with a rolled-edge hand-made black alligator leather strap, which terminates in a stainless steel ardillon buckle.
