JAQUET DROZ – Paillonnage

The art of paillonnage is resplendent in its beauty on the three Jaquet Droz watch faces. The noble 18th century art and decorative paillon technique involves placing shiny gold or silver metal leaf on translucent enamel to create a design. Delicate gilded floral patterns traverse the deep blue enamel on the faces of the three limited edition watches (8 of each). The cases are all in rose gold but with different diameters (39mm Petite Heure Minute, 43mm Grande Seconde and 50mm pocket watch). The time functions on the watches are brought to life by a self-winding movement whilst the pocket watch houses a manual calibre. The hour and minute display appears on a white background on the upper half of the dial. Only the Grande Seconde and pocket watch feature a seconds counter with a slim blue second hand in the lower half of the dial. Price: 41,050 CHF (Petite Heure Minute) – 43,200 CHF (Grande Seconde) – 48,600 CHF (pocket watch)
