Jaquet Droz presents its “Tourbillon Réserve de Marche”, an exceptional timepiece of cutting-edge technical sophistication that explores every dimension of Time.
For the very first time, the Manufacture Jaquet Droz has endowed a single model with three legendary complications: the Tourbillon, the Retrograde Date and the Retrograde Power Reserve. This breath-taking technical and design challenge was taken up by the master watchmakers of the house, who have surpassed themselves in their resolute, well-orchestrated quest for excellence. They have succeeded in making each complication a perfect statement in visual harmony.
A masterpiece of ingenious design, the “Tourbillon Réserve de Marche” features a 47 mm watchcase that takes a three-dimensional approach to reading indicators with a dial, a bezel, rings, displays and hands made of black gold and blued steel, each in their appointed place, for a clear and architectural view.
In the top half of the dial, the Retrograde Date and Power Reserve displays (power reserve 88 hours), curve symmetrically out from the hour-minute dial against the black opaline face, whereas the tourbillon mechanism below, embellished with the Côtes de Genève decoration, beats like a heart in perpetual motion.
The “Tourbillon Réserve de Marche” is a worthy addition to the “Hommage La Chaux-de-Fonds 1738” Collection, which pays tribute to the “Grandes Complications” cherished by the 18th century master himself, Pierre Jaquet Droz.
This exquisite timekeeper comes in two versions, 18-carat white gold or red gold, with a rolled-edge hand-crafted black alligator strap. Each version will be brought out in a Numerus Clausus limited edition of 28, each bearing its own engraved series number on the caseback.
