Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Watch - Spirit of Exclusiveness

Jun 20, 2011
On the occasion of the Only Watch 2011 event, the house of Jaquet Droz has released its new one-of-a-kind Petite Heure Minute watch. To be held on September 22, in Monaco, this charity auction will welcome more than 40 extraordinary timepieces. The entire proceeds will be donated to support medical research on the Duchenne Muscular Distrophy.

The new Jaquet Droz watch reveals a 43mm case, crafted from red gold. It handles the depth of up to 30 meters.

Housed in the case is an ivory Grand Feu enameled dial. It depicts a marvelous landscape, which represents an ancestral art of miniature painting on the enamel. The peerless artisan within the manufacture invested more than a week of painstaking effort to create this entirely hand-made masterpiece.

The face of the new Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute watch features an off-centered display. Equipped with Roman numerals, it ensures central hours and minutes.

The basic functions are brought to life by a self-winding mechanical movement. It incorporates a white gold oscillating weight, adorned with a sunray motif and the brands secret signature. Integrated within the movement is also a double barrel, which delivers a 68-hour power reserve.

A light nature of the new Jaquet Droz watch is further accentuated by a brown leather strap.
