Apr 20, 2011
This year, Jaquet Droz has pleasantly surprised its admirers by launching its new Grande Seconde SW Steel Ceramic and Grande Seconde SW Red Gold Titanium watches.


A union of excellent craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology, the new Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde SW Steel Ceramic watch has adopted a 45 mm case, sculptured in stainless steel. It is offset by an eye-pleasing ceramic bezel.

At 3 oclock, the model features a winding crown with a rubber cast. The back side of the new Jaquet Droz watch is engraved with an individual serial number. The case construction is 50-meter water-resistant.

Housed in the model is a black shiny varnished dial. It features two overlapped displays. The upper one takes care of hours and minutes, while the lower is responsible for seconds. The indexes and numerals 5, 6 and 7 are inlaid with blue Superluminova. So are the tips of the hands. The applied ring and plates are coated with rhodium treatment.

The functions are driven by a self-winding Jaquet Droz 2663A-S mechanical movement with ruthenium treatment. It incorporates an 18-carat white gold oscillating weight. Set with 30 jewels, the mechanism beats to the rhythm of 28,800 vibrations per hour. Integrated within the movement is also a double barrel, which ensures a 68-hour power reserve.

A natural black rubber strap with a stainless steel folding clasp rounds off the consummate appearance of the timepiece.
