First Look at Jaquet Droz's Grande Seconde SW Lady 41mm
A thoroughly sporty and elegant spirit for this new feminine version of the Grande Seconde SW
Launched in 2008, the Grande Seconde SW is the sporty version of the Grande Seconde model, that features two superimposed subdials, celebrating the figure 8, a symbol of infinity, balance and achievement. This year, a new feminine version of the Grande Seconde SW is being unveiled.
The watch comes in a 41 mm stainless steel case, offering brushed and polished finishes. Following in the great tradition of mineral dials that made Jaquet Droz famous, a white mother-of-pearl disc forms the dial of the watch. Running across the traced Arabic and Roman numerals, the blued steel hands are partially coated in Super-LumiNova.
Shimmering effects and the play of light interact with the sparkle of 40 diamonds set on the fluted bezel and with the reflections of the ring and plates in white gold.
Each element has been given special attention. The horns have been hollowed for greater lightness, a dynamic touch highlighted by the sporty spirit of the crown’s rubber cast, offering water-resistance to 5 bar (50 meters).
Visible through the sapphire crystal, the Calibre Jaquet Droz 2663A-S is a self-winding mechanical movement with ruthenium treatment, double barrel, silicon balance spring, 18-carat white gold oscillating weight and sunray-polished Côtes de Genève motif.
In addition to its twin stars, watch lovers will be able to recognize the secret signature of Jaquet Droz, a cloverleaf, subtly engraved on the movement.
Thoroughly sporty and luxurious, the watch is fitted with an elegant powdered violet alligator strap.
