Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Astorite - Valentine's Day Special

Jaquet Droz dedicates a special and loveable watch for this year’s Valentine's Day. Based on the brand’s popular Petite Heure Minute line, this charming ladies’ timepiece boasts a special dial made with astorite– a rare gem from the United States.
With its off-center hours and minutes subdial at 12 o’clock, the pink background of the dial sparkles with gold and silver inclusions, and black flecks and veins.The legend of John Astor becomes a part of Jaquet Droz's own legend; astorite, a stone named in Astor's honor, comes from the Colorado mine that belonged to this entrepreneur who perished on the Titanic. 
Dressed in a 35mm diameter red gold case set with 232 diamonds and produced in limited edition of 28 pieces, the Petite Heure Minute Astorite epitomizes feminine elegance. The pink of the astorite reflects the richness of the red gold case, ring and hands, and the soft waviness of white mother-of-pearl. Illuminated with diamonds set in the bezel and lugs, the Petite Heure Minute Astorite immediately captivates with its clean lines, true to the spirit of Jaquet Droz, where real luxury pulsates with sheer beauty.
