Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Off-Centered New Versions

Swiss luxury watch brand Jaquet Droz is presenting its iconic Grande Seconde Off-Centered model in four versions with a diameter of 39 mm.

The brand is well known for the most beautiful dials in European watchmaking. The two intersecting dials form a figure 8: a symbol of completion, balance and infinity.

The Grande Seconde Off-Centered is available in four new, re-designed models. The similarity comes from its lines, interlinking circles, elegant curves and perfect readability. And yet a slight off-centering gives its shape a twist. The hours-and-minutes dial is now located at two o’clock, with the seconds at seven o’clock.
Its 39 mm diameter case enables the watch to be worn by both ladies and gentlemen. First two models feature mineral dials handmade by the craftsmen of Jaquet Droz. The customer can choose either deep black onyx dial or aventurine dial bordered by a diamond-set bezel. The indexes cut directly into the circles of the dials create a clean, stripped-down appearance reminiscent of the style of contemporary art.

These two versions are joined by a model with a silvery opaline dial, whose flawless purity is enhanced by blued steel hands, as well as a model in Grand Feu enamel, the historic signature of the brand with the unique texture and coloring of ivory. The winding crown of these new versions is positioned at four o’clock.
