This year, Jaquet Droz enhances their Sports Watch (SW) Line with a Tourbillon model. Introduced in 2008, the sports watch (SW) line is composed of innovative timepieces. It is for the first time; Jaquet Droz is including one of watchmaking’s most challenging complications in its line of sports watches (SW).
Inserted at the top of the dial, the tourbillon reveals the extraordinary complexity of its mechanism. The upper bridge has been changed to perform the function of the seconds hand, whose elegant profile harmonizes with the sporty look of the watch.
Positioned opposite, the hours and minutes counter uses classical Roman numerals, giving them, as well as the hands, a coat of white Super-LumiNova to set up a contrast with the black rubber treatment of the dial. Set horizontally, the plates, carefully secured with screws, convey the perfect graphic balance and chromatic harmony of the Tourbillon.
The generously sized 45 mm case is highlighted by the precious shimmer of red gold and the fine fluting on the bezel. The alligator strap – used for the first time for a sports watch – brings its own special gleam to this exceptional timepiece.
