JAQUET DROZ – Grande Seconde Décentrée Onyx
“Black is the one colour that contains and consumes all others,” said French painter and sculptor Henri Matisse (1869-1954). The intense shiny black jade dial on the Grande Seconde Décentrée Onyx plays with the light bouncing off two white gold rings that come together to form a curvy figure of 8, a signature of Jaquet Droz. The smaller one unveils the hours and minutes tracked by two rhodium-plated spear-shape hands at 2 o’ clock. The larger and more eye-catching ring takes over the black dial between 5 and 9 whilst a slim hand twirls over the seconds brought to life by the JD 2663A.P calibre. Gaze at the mechanical movement through the 43mm steel case’s sapphire back as it provides a 68-hour power reserve. The steel watch is also available with a silver dial. Price: 10,200 CHF.
