Jaquet Droz is presenting its first feminine model of the Grande Seconde SW in 41 mm set with 40 diamonds.
Since the beginning of Jaquet Droz, the figure 8 has held pride of place in the imagination of the brand known by its twin stars. A symbol of infinity, balance and achievement, its silhouette has adorned the Grande Seconde since the Enlightenment, while the watch’s two superimposed subdials shake up the aesthetics of watchmaking by celebrating the poetry of the most fleeting instants.
Launched in 2008, the Grande Seconde SW is its athletic version, with a powerful and distinguished build that has made it one of the leading models of Jaquet Droz. This year, a new version is being unveiled. Sporty and feminine, imposing and precious, the Grande Seconde SW Lady is instantly recognizable. Its stainless steel case, 41 mm in diameter, is offered for the first time in a version set with diamonds.
In addition to its twin stars, watch lovers will be able to recognize the secret signature of Jaquet Droz, a cloverleaf, subtly engraved on the movement.
