Grande Seconde Skelet-One Ceramic
Jaquet Droz 2019
Jaquet Droz presents a resolutely modern take on the Grande Seconde, a classic now swathed in black ceramic, with blued steel screws securing the sapphire dial and hour markers in crisp white gold, all mounted on a blue canvas strap. The brand debuted a skeletonised movement in its Grande Seconde collection in 2018. This year's Grande Seconde Skelet-One presents a 41.50mm ceramic case that blends seamlessly with the black finish on the movement. A keen eye will notice that the mainplate stretches to the edge of the case, thus dispensing with the casing ring. In this new construction, the gear train is completely suspended, attached only to the skeletonised bridges that extend across the movement.
