JAQUET DROZ – Grande Seconde Sunstone

After whisking us away to a dream world of starry night skies on its poetic timepieces, the La Chaux-de-Fonds watchmaker is taking us back to the heavens to bask in the sunshine. In an ode to the fiery orb, the aventurine glass nicknamed “Sunstone” takes on a bright hue to bathe the three models’ dials in copper light. The trio includes the iconic Grande Seconde covered in gilded crystals with a twin mother-of-pearl display rimmed with rose gold to form Jaquet Droz’s signature figure of 8. Black Roman hour numerals appear off-centre at 12 o’ clock (not including the 5, 6 and 7) whilst the seconds tick down beneath a slim seconds hand. The time functions are brought to life by the self-winding JD 2663 calibre inside the 39mm rose gold case. Price: 24,100 CHF
