JAQUET DROZ – Grande Seconde Dual Time

Jaquet Droz – Grande Seconde Dual Time  

When you think of a “second time zone”, what always comes to mind is a busy dial drowning in counters and central hands. The watchmakers at Jaquet Droz have unveiled a more classic and incredibly stylish take on the second time zone to prove us wrong.

There are three versions of the new Grande Seconde Dual Time: silver, onyx or ivory Grand Feu enamel dial with a 43mm steel or rose gold case.

The time display is pure and simple whose functions and 65-hour power reserve are fuelled by the self-winding JD2663H24 calibre. Two dials, one off-centre at 12 and the other at 6, form the brand’s beloved figure of 8. The hours and minutes are tracked by two spear-shape hands gliding over Roman numerals. The large seconds, data display with hand and second time zone cluster together at 6.

Price: 15,200 CHF (steel) – 16,700 CHF (onyx) – 25,500 CHF (Grand Feu enamel)
