Jean Marcel Quadrum III Lune

Jean Marcel presents the third generation of the Quadrum series, with its elegant rectangular shape and classic moon phase display. A visually pleasant hand date completes the indications on the minimalistic dial of the limited edition of only 100 pieces.

Inside, the elaborately decorated automatic calibre JM A24 works based on the ETA 2685 equipped with a thermo-insensitive and anti-magnetic Glucydur balance.

The long vertical line combined with the slender width and minimal height of eleven millimetres mean that the 31.0 x 47.0 millimetres case made of 316L stainless steel fits perfectly on the wrist.

Despite the rectangular case construction and the sapphire crystal case back, the Jean Marcel Quadrum III Lune watch is pressure-resistant to 10 bar and therefore fully functional for everyday use.

Jean Marcel Optimum Curved UP Automatic Watch

The Jean Marcel Optimum collection offers ultra slim automatic watches with a total thickness of only 7.5 mm. These Swiss Made wristwatches are among the most slim three-hand automatic watches of the contemporary era.

With a case diameter of 40 millimetres, the timepieces fit harmoniously on the wrist. The Optimum is water-resistant up to 5 ATM and equipped with 2 sapphire crystals. These super-slim dress watches also have a date indication, which has been innovatively implemented on the left half of the dial.

The base calibre is 11 ½ ETA 2892A2 Top in a special “réduit” version with a shortened hand height. The elaborately finished calibre can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back. The Optimum Curved watch comes in three dial versions: ocean blue, slate grey and emerald green.

Ultimate Precision (UP)

With the new Optimum Curved UP collection, Jean Marcel is also introducing a new standard of quality and precision, focused on the precision of the movements. The internal specifications of this precision standard are stricter than the requirements of the official chronometer testing institute COSC.

Only watches with an average daily deviation in the range of 0 to +4 seconds are certified with the Ultimate Precision seal. In addition, the amplitude must be at least 270° and the beat error must not exceed 0.7ms. Every buyer receives a hand-signed certificate with his watch, documenting not only the average daily rate, but also the determined values for amplitude and beat error.

The Chronograph Élégance has a height of only 11 mm. The related movement, an 11 ½’’’ ETA 2894-2 Elaboré, shows itself in a highly refined design with noble cuts and blued screws. It is the thinnest automatic chronograph calibre with large rotor in the world.

The automatic models are based on a historical 12 ½’’’ ETA 2892. Elaborately skeletonized and finished, they have a Glucydur balance that guarantees the precision. The hand-wound models with an ETA 2801-2 in Perlage finish with Glucydur balance wheel are skeletonized as well.

The ARTEM Petite Seconde is based on the ETA calibre from the Spécialité 2895-2 category. Beautiful dials with a colour gradient from dark to light provide these models a unique look.
