Focus On The Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Dual Time Onyx
"Let's travel (for work first)". That is the message the watchmaking industry somewhat sent with many new products introduced during the last fairs. Jaquet Droz was one of them with its Grande Seconde Dual Time. We took the time to discover this model more in details and here is the result with this new Focus-on.
Jaquet is technically boosting its Grande Seconde line for two years now. In 2014, it asked the Frédéric Piguet manufacture - that belongs also to the Swatch Group - to customize a new movement with silicon hairspring, and various other interesting features. Then Jaquet Droz developed its own modular complications. The dual time zone is interesting as, to respect the general design of the GS collection, all the hands - seconds, date and GMT - are coaxial. This kind of construction is not frequent and demanding as the more hands you put on the same axis, the most delicate the assembling and adjusting operations are.
The Grande Seconde is one of the strongest lines on the watch market in terms of aesthetic. This dual time version brings something more to it as it was first a very pure and evocative model appreciated first by creatives, architects and designers. Of course simplicity and large surfaces are still preserve and the general style is present. But now, with this model, the Grande Second becomes clearly also a practical, day-to-day, "executive" watch. It is a dress watch that is also a practical tool. Finally, let's underline the power of the black color of the dial. Because it is made out of onyx, it gives the watch strength and intensity. Save 18'050 francs is you want this steel case superb watch on your wrist - on the one of your beloved. For more information: Jaquet Droz
