Jaquet Droz: Grande Seconde Dual Time
Baselworld 2016 was a success for some of the biggest players in the watchmaking industry. It was also the occasion for those brands to showcase their latest creations.
One of our favourite timepieces was the Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Dual Time.
“A new movement was developed to create an upper dial displaying the local time and a lower seconds dial, off-centered at six o’clock, that doubles up with an hours and minutes dial giving the reference time. All this is accomplished without compromising the elegance of the slender seconds hand that makes a complete rotation for every minute,” explained the brand during the exhibition.
The Grande Seconde Dual Time boasts a 43mm dial and come in three different versions. An ivory Grand Feu enameled dial with a red gold case, and a silvery opaline or onyx dial with a stainless steel case.
For a closer look at the timepiece have a look at the video that was displayed during the brands presentation.
