JAQUET DROZ

LOT 22

GRANDE SECONDE OFF-CENTERED CUPRITE

This reinterpretation of the legendary Grande Seconde watch and its playful figure 8 - the symbol of infinity and completeness that has come to represent Jaquet Droz - features a cuprit background. Its fiery red color embodies all the passion dedicated to both the timepiece and the Only Watch project.


The cut of the mineral dial requires the extreme, expert delicacy for which Jaquet Droz is known. Each inclusion, vein and detail of the dial makes for a singular masterpiece. But the Grande Seconde goes even further: the two counters traditionally aligned on the 12 o’clock / 6 o’clock axis are made off-center, adding an original, dynamic touch to this purest of canvases. The thinness of the circled gold flanges match that of the hands and the majestic direct-drive seconds hand, while the crown is shifted to 4 o’clock for a subtle aesthetic twist.
