Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Art Deco Watches - Richness of Ornamental Motifs

Apr 19, 2011
This year, the house of Jaquet Droz delights the audience with the presentation of its three new Petite Heure Minute Art Deco ladys watches. Offered in limited edition of 88 pieces, the novelties successfully unite the modernism of the Bauhaus movement and the incredible creativity of the Roaring Twenties.

All new Jaquet Droz watches boast white mother-of-pearl dials, which utilize a "Ramolayee" technique. Thoroughly cut out and engraved, each dial is embellished with a unique moire pattern.

Every watch face reveals an off-centered display, encircled by an applied 18-carat red or white gold ring. The model tells hours and minutes, indicated by 18-carat red gold or blued steel hands.

The dial of each new Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Art Deco watch is gently hugged by a 39mm case, rendered in 18-carat red or white gold. It carries a wasp-waisted bezel, which can be illuminated by the play of 248 diamonds, totaling to 1.84 carats.

The case-back is engraved with the individual limited serial number of the model. Its water-resistance is assured down to 30 meters.

Ticking inside the timepiece is a self-winding mechanical Jaquet Droz 2653 movement. Set with 28 jewels, it beats to the rhythm of 28,800 vibrations per hour. Integrated within the movement is a 22-carat white gold oscillating weight and a double barrel, which ensures a 68-hour power reserve.

The new Jaquet Droz watch is mounted on a rolled-edge hand-made brown, black or white satin strap. It terminates in an 18-carat white or red gold ardillon buckle. The latter can be set with 24 diamonds with the weight of 0,15 carats.
