Jaquet Droz Introduces Grande Seconde Tribute
In Honor of Its 280th Anniversary, Jaquet Droz Pays Introduces the Grande Seconde Tribute
Since its introduction back in 2002, the Grande Seconde wristwatch has become an iconic piece of the Jaquet Droz lineup. To celebrate their 280th anniversary, Jaquet Droz has released the Grande Second Tribute, limited to just 88 pieces and presented in an exclusive box. This marks the first time the brand offers a wristwatch version of this iconic timepiece in yellow gold.
The first Grande Seconde was created in pocket watch form by the founder of the brand, Pierre Jaquet-Droz in 1784. This year’s Grande Seconde Tribute clearly draws inspiration from that first pocket watch version, with a yellow gold case and timeless white dial with black Arabic and Roman numerals.
The Grande Seconde Tribute features a Caliber 2663 movement which is entirely hand-assembled, and is capable of almost three full days of power reserve (68 hours). The watch is resistant to magnetic fields and temperature variations thanks to a silicon escapement. The watch is decorated with traditional hand guilloche and the brand’s two symbolic stars. The starts represent the Jaquet-Droz father and son, and are unique to the Grande Seconde Tribute.
