Introducing: The Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Tribute

Introducing: The Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Tribute

Speedy Take

Among the numerous commemorations being commended at this year’s Baselworld, Jaquet Droz will toast its 280th year. While the Grande Seconde wristwatch has just been around since 2002, it depends on a historic pocket fake watch prices plan from Pierre Jaquet-Droz, the brand’s namesake originator, and has become the brand’s immediately unmistakable calling card in the 16 years it’s been in present day production. 

While the brand tries different things with more vanguard takes on the Grande Seconde, at last it’s a fake watch prices about elegance. Thus, for this commemoration year, Jaquet Droz is making the fake watch prices in yellow gold for the absolute first time. It’s shocking this hasn’t been done previously, however it hasn’t, and JD is matching the conventional case with an ivory grand feu lacquer dial to raise the stakes. This is probably as unadulterated and clear a manifestation of the Grande Second as you could envision and it’s being delivered as a restricted release of 88 numbered pieces (in a gesture to the “8” shaped by the covering registers on the watch’s dial).

Beginning Thoughts

I’ve gotta say, I truly like this one. Jaquet Droz is a brand that thrives when it accepts the things about it that vibe somewhat anachronistic. That’s a major piece of the charm for me. This is a fake watch prices that I unquestionably expected to be as of now existed and to realize that it was this long coming makes it all the seriously engaging. All the negative space on the veneer dial gives you heaps of room to value the grand feu and if this dial is in any way similar to JD’s other lacquer dials, the dark markings will be dangerously sharp as well. As far as I might be concerned, the solitary catch here is that the fake watch prices is 43mm in breadth. For something so exemplary, that feels way curiously large. I know it’s the standard Grande Second size these days, however for something like this I would have very much wanted the 39mm case. Would you be able to envision? Possibly for the 285th anniversary?
