A modern, elegant satin-brushed blue sunray finish adorns this new interpretation of Jaquet Droz’s signature watch, proposed as 39mm and 43mm diameters.

With the novel color on an up-to-the-minute model, the Grande Seconde Quantième is back with a new blue dial that is perfectly on trend. Outstretched beams created using the decorative sunray technique radiate the dial towards the edges of the timepiece, giving it a fresh glow. This iconic piece for the brand stands out with the distinctive off-center display showing the hours and minutes at 12 o’clock, and the grande seconde at 6 o’clock coupled with a date calendar. The dial’s sunrays originate here and reach out towards the bezel. The sunrays offset at 6 o’clock cast a bluish light on the dial.

Jaquet Droz has expanded this new look to include a version with indexes in 18 carat white gold that curve toward the outside of the dial. The final stroke of design ingenuity is the red tip on the date calendar’s hand, which makes it easier to read. Jaquet Droz has also created a separate space for it on the dial. The model is powered by a movement with a silicon balance spring and pallet lugs. It is impervious to both shocks and temperature fluctuations. This timepiece comes in two diameters: The 39mm combines timeless style and refinement, and the 43mm creates a bolder contemporary look.
