Jaquet Droz Eclipse

The Eclipse is a real feat of watchmaking; it not only displays the day, month and year, but also the phases of the Moon which have fascinated astronomers, explorers and artists of all times and every culture. On the dial, a Moon with a smiling face inspired by 19th century engravings playfully appears and disappears behind a matt black disk that sharply offsets the brilliance of the dial.

Within the 43 mm red-gold case, an intensely black Grand Feu enameled dial welcomes 8 stars, inspired as much by the favorite number of the Manufacture as by the symbolism of the star that is so dear to Jaquet Droz.
