In the L’Heure Sélénite watch with 18-carat white gold case, the dial depicts a night sky of black diamonds scattered with white-diamond stars. Two hands of white gold stand out against a full moon of black onyx, embraced by an ivory mother-of-pearl crescent moon.
Recognizing that women have always been inexorably attracted to star-gazing, Jaquet Droz has taken inspiration from Selena, the Greek goddess of the moon, in creating L’Heure Sélénite. The decorative design of this precious watch establishes a fine tension between light and dark, strength and subtlety. This picks up on the paradox expressed by two different aspects of Time: while it can be measured with great precision, its mystery remains unfathomable. This time-keeper is designed to take a woman to the stars while gracing her wrist with onyx, mother-of-pearl and diamonds.
Featuring a mechanical self-winding, double barrel movement, L’Heure Sélénite is worn on a rolled-edge handmade black alligator leather strap. Brought out in a Numerus Clausus of 8, this exclusive timepiece combines the very finest of materials with the magic of the night and the radiance of stars in the nocturnal heavens.
