Combining modern materials and a sophisticated design, the new SW embodies Jaquet Droz’s watchmaking expertise in a powerful and versatile watch.

“Sport Watch” says it all. The SW by Jaquet Droz is an original, sporty and edgy creation. There is no shortage of emotion and thrill with the new SW Steel-Ceramic. One color stands out before you even get to the details: red. This is the first time it has played such a prominent role on an SW, or a Jaquet Droz creation for that matter. The hand-edged fabric strap ties in with the Grande Seconde’s stroke at 6 o’clock, the tip of the hour and minute hands, and the quarter hour marks they sweep over – all coated with Super-LumiNova. Where they intersect, the red 5, 6 and 7 are written in Arabic numerals while the other numbers appear in Roman. Under this numerical trio, at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock, there are two crossbars firmly locking the iconic figure 8 formed by the hour-minute and Grande Seconde dials on the impressive 45mm case.

Sized for everyday use, the steel case is covered with a black ceramic bezel that is inalterable and scratch-proof. The crown is screwed down at 3 o’clock making it water-resistant to 50 meters (5 bar). It’s also protected by a rubber cast for optimal handling. On either side, two large claws safeguard it from shocks. On the other side of the crossbridge, there is a symmetrical piece to make it achieve seamless balance and give the case maximum protection.
