Jaquet Droz presents its most iconic wristwatch with an inky-blue opal dial that’s mottled with flecks of green. This one-of-a-kind Grande Seconde Tourbillon is based on a historic pocket watch designed by the brand’s founder, Pierre Jaquet-Droz. Since its 2002 unveiling, the Grande Seconde has become Jaquet Droz’s most recognisable model thanks to its classic design. We really like this one, and are jealous of the connoisseur who is able to add it to his or her collection.
A mechanical tourbillon movement with a power reserve of seven days powers this Grande Seconde. Invented back in 1795, during the era of the pocket watch, the tourbillon was first created to prevent gravity from pulling on a watch’s time-telling mechanisms.
