Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Eclat (Hommage Genève 1784 Collection)

With the Grande Seconde Eclat, Jaquet Droz presents a model of amazing beauty that exalts the art of Time. The pleasure of wearing this luxurious creation at all times is intensified by the radiance of diamonds.

This luxurious and sparkling creation boasts the design of legendary Grande Seconde watch face, with its two overlapping dials. One, at 12 o’clock, marks the hours and minutes; the other at 6 o’clock, which measures the seconds, is larger, as if to assert the primacy of smaller intervals over the traditional perception of Time.

Developed in the 18th century, the philosophy of the Manufacture from La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, is artfully expressed in a spectacular dial fully covered with diamonds and set off by an 18-carat white gold case studded with precious gems.

Available in a Numerus Clausus of 8, the Grande Seconde Eclat belongs to the Hommage Genève 1784 Collection and is worn on a rolled-edge handmade black alligator leather strap.
