The Jacquet Droz Tourbillon Watch is extremely elegant
It is one thing to ignorantly look at a clock or watch, and a totally different idea to enjoy every single passing second while admiring the brand new Jacquet Droz Tourbillon timepiece elegantly tied to your wrist. It belongs to a different league, the league of simple, yet extremely chic timepieces.
Through tradition, intricate designing, careful manufacture and expertise spanning over 300 years, Jacquet Droz brings forth these two staggeringly elegant pieces based on the iconic Grande Seconde, with the tourbillon complication – a true innovation in precision timepiece manufacture.
The main advantage of a tourbillon mechanism is that it eliminates the effects of gravity on timekeeping. This provides way more reliability, precision and prettier looks at the same time. In this case, the Côtes de Genève dial is comprised within a white gold case, while the Grand Feu enameled dial version is contained within a red gold case. There’s even more innovation to Jacquet Droz’ creations, as he has unveiled a tourbillon carriage crafted entirely from sapphire crystal, which has also been used for the figure 8 shaped ring applied to the dial.
Furthermore, the tourbillon was placed off-centered at the 12 o’clock position, in the middle of the seconds subdial. The elegant hours and minutes subdial located at 6 o’clock compliments this positioning, conferring a stunning appearance to this magnificent looking piece. The models’ elegance is ultimately highlighted by the superbly proportioned and tapered hands, alongside the classically looking Roman numerals.
In a few words, these two models are true pinnacles of watchmaking, fact not only supported by the staggering looks, technology and innovation, but also by the 7 days power reserve they have been blessed with. Ultimately, when you notice the transparent case back which reveals the inner mechanisms, a visual orgasm is the only feeling you can be certain of.
