Introduced in 2000, five years after the creation of the first Jour et Nuit created by Svend Andersen, this models is a larger version of this very original model with its unique dial. The hour and minute displays are separate. At the end of each revolution around the minute sub-dial, the hour jumps ahead on one of the two arcs of the circle. These show the hours of the day and night and are indicated by hands decorated with the sun and moon respectively.
