THE ART OF TRANSPARENCY
For Baselworld 2018, Jaquet Droz introduced a new skeleton watch made of gold or ceramic in the Grande Seconde collection.
Since it was first launched, the Grande Seconde collection by Jaquet Droz has delighted fans with some high-class timepieces. All the watches share a unique signature design – a graphic representation of the number 8 on two offset discs on the dial, symbolising infinity. For the first time, a skeleton watch has joined the collection, while still respecting the original design feature. So, out goes the traditional dial and in comes an openwork design. At 12 o’clock, the hour and minute hands move above a decor featuring the watch mechanism. They point to elegant Roman and Arabic numerals placed on a rim made of grey gold or ceramic, depending on the version. The second hand makes its way around a sapphire surface. Below, the visible structure of the bridges with black coating weave their web.
The Grande Seconde Skelet One comes with an alligator leather strap and a tang buckle.
Price: 24,700 EUR (ceramic) – 34,300 EUR (red or white gold) jaquet-droz.com
