Grande Seconde Tourbillon

Jaquet Droz 2016

ref. J013033242
Unisex

Jaquet Droz is one of the rare watchmakers to have revived the art of paillonné enamel, a technique inherited from the eighteenth century in which tiny ornamental shapes (spangles or paillons) cut from gold leaf are covered with translucent Grand Feu enamel. Here, the hour and minute dial is positioned at 6 o'clock to create room for the one-minute Tourbillon which also carries the small seconds indication. Technically complex and at the same time exemplary in its classic style, this watch reconnects with the culture and knowledge of the Age of Enlightenment.
