Jubilee Audemars Chronometer

Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars
Model 26100OR.OO.D002CR.01, movement model Cal. 3124/3841, 18K white gold case, off-white lacquered dial, bezel tachometer, central chronograph second hand, small 3 o’clock dial, 9 o’clock 30 minutes Chronograph, power reserve 60 hours, case diameter 41 mm, water resistance 20 m
     The combination of the pear-shaped hands and off-white dial conveys the slightly yellowed elegance in memory, while the hands in the two small dials create the interest of details with the contrast of colors. The same pear-shaped hands also appear in Audemars Piguet’s Jules Audemars chronograph. Its off-white lacquered dial has the warm colors admired in the British style of the 18th century in the Queen Anne era, and the track scale is another important detail inherited from the era of pocket watches. Although the dial design also uses the combination of Breguet flower-shaped hour markers and pear-shaped hands, but the off-white dial shows a retro style under the brewing of another culture. In order to meet the aesthetic needs of the big watch era, the diameter of the case of Audemars Piguet Audemars chronograph has been expanded to 41 mm, but I thought that such a delicate and elegant piece, if it can be carried in a 36 mm case, its Nostalgia may be more vivid.
     Although pear-shaped hands can be an important element in the design orientation of vintage watches, this style is not easily controlled by any watch. Watches with pear-shaped hands, first of all, the brand itself should have a certain historical heritage, otherwise it is not enough to show the characteristics of the times; secondly, pear-shaped hands are more suitable for models with less complicated functions and a slightly slim shell At the same time, the shape should have a delicate decoration and contrast, so that the beautiful temperament in the pointer can be revealed.

A Journey Of Time Appreciation Of Jacques Dro’s Large Seconds Hand And Two Places Watches

Grande Seconde Dual Time follows the rhythm of history and the journey of Pierre Jaquet-Droz in the 18th century, with new mechanisms and elegance The second time zone shows the magical charm of time in both places.

   In 2016, Jacques Dro first applied the two-place concept to one of his signature watches: the Grande Seconde series. This classic model is equipped with two eccentric dials that are slightly intersected with the shape of the number 8 to represent the infinite possibilities of time. ‘8’ is a lucky number for Jacques Dro, symbolizing balance and perfection.

    For this purpose, the brand has developed a new movement that displays the local time on the upper dial. At the same time, based on the eccentric second dial at 6 o’clock, a second hour and minute display is added to display the reference time. The elegant and slim second hand is not eclipsed, and it rotates once every minute … The master craftsmen adhere to the brand’s aesthetic philosophy and present a classic and exquisite layout design. The upper dial uses Roman numerals and the lower dial uses Arabic numerals.

   In addition, the watch also adds a complicated function, that is, the date display: the date is displayed by red pin-point hands, using Jacques Dro’s unique and exquisite shape, looks clear and pleasing in the streamlined dial space. This design is also for the sake of improving clarity during reading. The Grande Seconde Dual Time is equipped with a silicon balance spring, which has excellent precision timing performance and is immune to magnetic interference.

Summary: The Grande Seconde Dual Time is accurate and reliable. It is an ideal timepiece for a dream journey. There are three 43 mm diameter models to choose from: large ivory enamel with red gold case, silver Ivory dial and onyx dial with stainless steel case. The two-hour large seconds hand has a power reserve of about 65 hours.
