Jacques Dro Launches The Large Second Date Watch

Since the eighteenth century, Grande Seconde series watches have been avant-garde pure aesthetic design never seen before, witnessing the passing of time. This Jaquet Droz classic is one of the most breathtaking achievements in the history of horology. The Grande Seconde series has launched many jewellery models, SW replica watches, or even made of precious metal or ceramic case. This time the Grande Seconde series of watches is again innovative, introducing durable, noble and simple stainless steel models.
    Adhering to the spirit of avant-garde innovation, Jaquet Droz has re-interpreted the Grande Seconde series with new watch exclusive craftsmanship and launched two ‘all black’ dial watches. This process was pioneered by Jaquet Droz. First, the dial was immersed in a chemical solvent, so that it was covered with a perfect dark coating. Subsequently, the individual parts on the dial are cut integrally. This process requires careful carving of the time scale (if necessary, frosting) to give the dial a unique gloss and a new texture.
    Finally, the third Grande Seconde Quantième watch launched by Jaquet Droz has created a dazzling white silver-plated dial with the brand’s most exquisite craftsmanship, showing the beauty of simplicity. In these three watches, the calendar is indicated by the hands at 6 o’clock, which is unremarkable and low-key, intended to highlight the sharp contrast between Roman numerals and Arabic numerals on the watch, and the brand’s eternal long-term history Geometric balance layout. The Grande Seconde Quantième watch is perfectly proportioned. The material reflects the effect of light and shade. The dial’s metallic light and uniform color complement each other, exquisite. This reinterpreted historical watch has a rounded shape, designed to reflect a unique modernity, and watch lovers will surely appreciate it.
