As a Baselworld 2017 preview, Swiss luxury watch brand Jaquet Droz unveils a high complication timepiece for ladies. Based on the legendary Grande Seconde theme, the Grande Seconde Tourbillon Mother-Of-Pearl timepiece for women successfully merges the brand’s supreme mastery in the fields of traditional mechanical watchmaking and jewellery.
With a long standing tradition traces back to 18th century, Jaquet Droz is putting a new twist on the iconic Grande Seconde line to create a new standard in women's watches. Master craftsmen did this by choosing one of the most beautifully luminescent materials: mother-of-pearl. With an age-old tradition of mineral dials, Jaquet Droz has all the expertise it needs to once again achieve flawlessness.
Laid on a white satin strap, there is also a bit of mystery about the Grande Seconde Tourbillon Mother-of-Pearl, like the gold oscillating weight adorned with white mother-of-pearl and the movement's bridges with a fanned Côtes de Genève design.
