Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Minute Repeater

The Grande Seconde Minute Repeater is an absolute masterpiece of fine watchmaking complications. Tradition and innovation have driven each stage in the development of this timepiece whose design, featuring two intertwined dials, extols the Manufacture’s legendary number: the 8.

This virtuoso complication plays real music on demand, with a range of high and low notes that tell us where we are in the cycle of time. Two tiny hammers ring out a delicate symphony that has never ceased to fascinate lovers of fine watchmaking since the Age of Enlightenment. Jaquet Droz presents this watch with an ivory Grand Feu enameled dial in a generously rounded case in red gold.
