A perfect example of the fusion of tradition with the Avant-Garde spirit of the Manufacture, the Grande Seconde SW Titanium wristwatch demonstrates all that Jaquet Droz stands for: love of design, perfection in every detail and mechanical excellence.
The company’s exceptional mastery of watchmaking secrets now extends to the use of an equally exceptional material: titanium. Ultra-lightweight, ultra-strong, this high-technology metal has been selected as much for its technical qualities as for its aesthetic appeal. The unique beauty of its grey-blue tint is enhanced by an alternately polished and brushed finish, and by its rubber molding.
The carbon dial emphasizes the modernity of the Grande Seconde SW TITANIUM which is now 30% lighter than the original version. Its performance is highlighted by the Super-LumiNova on the markers and the tips of the hands; it adds a touch of glowing red to the dark beauty of the watch, which is entirely placed under the sign of the figure 8.
Both an evolution and an aesthetic revolution, the Grande Seconde SWTITANIUM preserves all its watchmaking expertise: a double-barrel mechanical movement, a 68-hour power reserve and water-resistance to 5 bar (50 meters). Fitted with a rubber strap, the Grande Seconde SWTITANIUM advances the frontiers of time even further.
