Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Quantieme Steel - Magic of Time

Sep 13, 2011
The Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde collection welcomes three newcomers rendered in steel the Grande Seconde Quantieme Steel. The Jaquet Droz watches have maintained the signature aesthetic features and sleek, avant-garde design characterizing the older members of the collection.

The Jaquet Droz watchmakers have applied an exclusive process to come up with two new models that stand out due to their all-black dials. During this process all of the dial details are crafted from solid metal. Then, they are dipped in a chemical bath to acquire a peerless black coating that creates the beauty of the indicators.

When given a fine-brushed finish, the indicators demonstrate a nice interplay of light and textures.

The third model in the range reveals a silvery-white opaline dial that holds the gaze due to its great purity.

The stainless steel case, 43mm in diameter, is 30-meter water-resistant. It is presented on a rolled-edge hand-made black alligator leather strap fitted with a stainless steel folding clasp. The case-back is engraved with an individual serial number.

The Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Quantieme Steel watches are animated by a self-winding mechanical movement - Jaquet Droz 2660Q2. The 30 -jewel movement, incorporating a double barrel and a yellow gold oscillating weight, is operating at a frequency of 28, 800 vibrations per hour and offers 68 hours of power-reserve.

The functionality of the models includes off-centered hours and minutes and a large seconds sub-dial. The date is shown by a hand positioned discreetly at 6 o'clock. The elegance of the tapered hand with a red tip matches the Roman and Arabic numerals.
