With the “Grande Seconde Céramique Blanche”, Jaquet Droz demonstrates once again its capacity to excel. Behind the immaculate and restrained form of this new and exceptional model within the “Hommage Genève 1784” collection, are the “savoir-faire” and the spirit of innovation that characterise the Jaquet Droz Manufacture.
The “Grande Seconde Céramique Blanche” adopts one of the historic designs of Jaquet Droz. Secondly, modernity, for a watch case taken to new levels by the choice of a material that is so challenging to work with: ceramic. Then the unique grain of the white “grand feu” enamelled dial enhances the beauty of this timepiece.
This timepiece symbolises the perfect blend between the craftsman’s mastery of “grand feu” enamelwork, handed down from the 17th century, and the futuristic, technical nature of ceramic, a vital element at the very heart of the 21st century.
With its self-winding double-barrel mechanical movement, the “Grande Seconde Céramique Blanche” appeals to the best in Jaquet Droz tradition: the power of its lines, its mechanical reliability, its unique design, and the contemporaneity of an integrated rubber band, also in white.
This model is signed with its own individual number engraved on the back of the 44 mm case: a discreet way of attesting to the exclusivity of a timepiece which is presented in a Numerus Clausus limited edition of just 88.
