Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Skelet-One New Models in Red Gold (Reference J003523241) and Plasma Ceramic (Reference J003525542)

Jaquet Droz unveils two new versions of its Grande Seconde Skelet-One and each has a unique way of honoring two very complementary stylistic approaches.

The traditional model features a 41mm diameter case made of red gold. Worn on a leather strap with a novel rubber-like finish, it supplements the watchmaker’s semi-mat alligator straps. It perfectly matches the gray of the bridges suspending the Grande Seconde’s delicate movement.

Inside the case beats an exclusive Jaquet Droz caliber. Every component of this mechanical movement is meticulously stripped down to its minimum point of resistance. The fully suspended gear train is attached to the movement’s skeletonized bridges raised by an open-worked oscillating weight that lets light shine clearly through.

The modern version, on the other hand, is the first time Jaquet Droz has used plasma ceramic on one of its timepieces. This plasma ceramic is just as hard, lightweight and scratch-resistant as high-tech ceramic, a material that has widely stood the test of time.

The gray anthracite theme carries over to the new plasma ceramic case held by a sleek and modern gray textile strap.
