The first “Jour et Nuit” collection was created by Andersen Geneve SA was for Cartier. In 1998 a special edition of 125 watches was made by Andersen Geneve for Cartier’s Pasha Collection.
The first “Grande Jour et Nuit” on the basic movement Frederic Piguet 15 combined with the genius jumping hour mechanism, under the Andersen Geneve brand, came in a limited edition of only 20 pieces in 2002 because of the rarity of the Frederic Piguet movement. These watches were sold out within a very short time. This high grade collectible watch is now available again in a limited edition of 50 pieces.
The very classic movement Frederic Piguet, 15”, hand wound and ultra-flat, is completed with the genius jumping hour mechanism. The double hour hand, associated with the small minute hand, offers an aesthetic and readable display of day and night time on an exclusive dial of blue gold or natural stones such as Jade, Aventurine, White Marble, Grossularite etc.
The cases are 30 pieces in red gold, 20 pieces in white gold, and are numbered 01/30 and 01/20.
The Frederic Piguet, movement manufacturer, now Blancpain, has stopped the production of this excellent classic calibre, developed in the 1960s, and produced ever since, for exclusive watches of the most renowned Swiss brands.
