A true icon will reinvent itself to always withstand the test of time. One such icon is the Grande Seconde Quantième which lends itself to two new versions boasting an elegant sunray finish dial.

The quest of beauty has led to the creation of two new models of the Grande Seconde Quantième. The watch is instantly recognized by connoisseurs thanks to its two off-center dials, majestic direct-drive seconds hand and pointer-type date display highlighted with a touch of intense red. This emblematic silhouette is now displayed on a dial featuring a sunray finish, which helps capture and diffuse rays of light thus creating fascinating iridescence. Two shades are available – anthracite, equipped with hands in rhodium-plated steel, and gray, with hands in blued steel.

Each version is available with a diameter of 39 or 43 millimeters. Playing on light and the meticulously studied volumes of the white gold indexes, these Grande Seconde Quantième Satin-Brushed watches diffuse a distinctive brilliance, matched by the gleam of the new hand-made straps in light brown and slate gray alligator leather. The sleek silhouette of the horns, the convex appliques and perfect curves of the bezel and steel case strengthen this performance of remarkable purity. Lastly, the date, located on an incline on the dial at six o’clock, brings an added touch of modernity to this work of visual architecture.
