Rouge And Noir Models From Jaquet Droz

Jul 30, 2009
Jaquet Droz has introduced three exceptional watches from Baselworld 09. Launched as limited series of 88, these timepieces remarkably draw together the colors of the materials used: the absolute black of the Grand Feu enamelled dial, the black matt of the rubber as well as the red gold of the case.

By presenting its Grande Seconde SW Rouge, the horological company Jaquet Droz brings the sport watches to the forefront. This novel model is a blend of unparalleled functionality and supreme gracefulness of the watch exterior - the combination of red and black happens to be very spectacular - with an exciting exuberance of high-speed sports.

Red gold is employed in manufacture of both the case and the three-dimensional ring, whose masculine lines surround two dials of this watch. Red gold glows from the applied plates, the hollowed horns, the hands and the folding clasp with its shining surface that contrasts with the dark matt of the rubber strap, as well as the dial, crown and fluted bezel, notable for its bold design. The timepiece hands are Superluminova-coated. This outstanding design reveals the infinite care lavished on details.

The Les Douze Villes gorgeous watch is intended for people, whose lifestyles involve much traveling: for those who regularly cross different time zones. These potential owners of the model in question will be able to enjoy twelve cities displayed on one superb timepiece. For this watch Jaquet Droz has decided on Grand Feu enamelled dial, which exposes twelve versions of temporality within several square centimeters.

The dial reveals two exhibition windows: the first, located at 6 o’clock, displays the selected city, and the second one, placed at 12 o’clock, indicates the local time. The dial also features an impressive red gold minutes hand. The red gold case of the watch, measuring 43 mm, houses a jumping hours complication.

Two independent plates, incorporated into the watch, move simultaneously, indicating the time in the selected city. The entire process is carried out by means of a complex mechanism.

The chronographe a rattrapante has been developed for the renowned Hommage La Chaux-de-Fonds 1738 Collection by Jaquet Droz. A piece of art created in the world of horology, the chronograph reveals a black Grand Feu enamelled dial, that has been the brand’s pride for many years, alongside with a set of red gold hands, distinguished by their unrivalled readability.

This chronographe a rattrapante, with its red gold case size equal to 45 mm, can measure two events, which start simultaneously, but last differently. The chronograph hand and the rattrapante work together or compete under the guidance of the large date, which is visible through the cutout, placed at 12 o'clock.

The rattrapante also offers the tachymeter function, which allows the wearer to measure the speed he travels at.
