READING ASTRAL TIME
Jaquet Droz’s flagship collection now includes a major complication, the moon phase. Three new models harmoniously combine the Grande Seconde with the queen of the night.
Introduced at BaselWorld this year, the Grande Seconde Moon Silver by Jaquet Droz is one of three new models that have joined the Grande Seconde collection. One is made of steel, with an onyx dial, the other is made of rose gold and “Grand Feu” enamel, and this last model, with a steel case and a silvered opal dial, results in a simple and refined timepiece – two adjectives that are well suited to the brand based in La Chaux-de-Fonds.
The Grande Seconde Moon Silver’s self-winding movement provides a power reserve of 68 hours. Jaquet Droz invites us to contemplate and analyse the passing of time with a timepiece that is very easy to read thanks to a dual-level dial that has been specially designed for these three models.
