Meet Three Versions of Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute 35mm Watch

Oct 24, 2011
Faithful to such values as tradition and innovation, the timepiece manufacture Jaquet Droz has released three new watches, named Petite Heure Minute Aventurine, Petite Heure Minute Ivory Enamel and Petite Heure Minute Mother-of-Pearl. All of them are distinguished by refined elegance.

The new Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Aventurine watch captures attention with its aventurine dial. It features an applied ring with rhodium treatment. The display indicates off-centered hours and minutes, by means of rhodium-plated hands.


The dial of the new Jaquet Droz watch is enclosed in a 35mm stainless steel case. Its back part is engraved with an individual serial number. The case is 30-meter water-resistant.

Hidden inside the model is a self-winding mechanical Jaquet Droz 265 movement, built on 28 jewels. It incorporates a heavy metal oscillating weight and a double barrel, which ensures a 68-hour power reserve. The movement beats to the rhythm of 28,800 vibrations per hour.

Adding a final note of harmony is a rolled-edge hand-made blue satin strap, which emphasizes a mysterious character of the dial. It joins to a stainless steel ardillon buckle.

The new Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Ivory Enamel watch is available with an 18-carat red gold case, which also measures 35mm in diameter. Its back side is engraved with an individual serial number. The case is submersible to 30 meters.


Beating at the heart of the model is a self-winding mechanical Jaquet Droz 2653 movement, which incorporates a double barrel and a 22-carat white gold oscillating weight. Paved with 28 jewels, it runs at the rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour and supplies a 68-hour power reserve.

The caliber animates off-centered hours and minutes, presented on a hand-made ivory grand feu enameled dial. The hands are done in 18-carat red gold. Keeping the timepiece secured to the wearers wrist is a rolled-edge hand-made brown alligator leather strap. It terminates in an 18-carat red gold ardillon buckle.

The last in the range is the new Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Mother-of-Pearl watch. It is executed in a 35mm 18-carat white gold case. Its delicate bezel and graceful lugs are set with 232 diamonds, totaling to 1.28 carats. The case-back features an individual serial number engraving. The model provides 30-meter water-resistance.


Housed in the case is a white mother-of-pearl dial, skillfully adorned with a sunray motif. It demonstrates an applied ring with rhodium treatment and blued steel hands, indicating off-centered hours and minutes.

The functions are driven by a self-winding mechanical Jaquet Droz 2653 movement with a 22-carat white gold oscillating weight. A double barrel, also integrated within its structure, provides a 68-hour power reserve. The caliber is studded with 28 jewels and operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour.

The new Jaquet Droz watch is mounted on a rolled-edge hand-made white satin strap, embellished with 2 diamonds with the weight of 0.06 carats. It is finalized by an 18-carat white gold ardillon buckle.
