Connected to the case is among Jaquet Droz’s most outstanding rolled alligator straps in a deep blue to coordinate with the aventurine on the dial. What I really like about the rolled leather look is that there’s no sewing on the outside, which I happen not to like in many cases – especially on more formal or dress watches. Limited to just 28 bits, I am rather fond of the pretty looks of the ref. My only remaining question is whether it would find a spot in my wrist… and so I said “perhaps on the right night and below the ideal skies” (wow, which came out so French!) . He irony of this Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Quantieme view was that it was initially published in steel, as a lower-priced model for the high-end brand. For 2014, Jaquet Droz releases some new versions of the this “calendar” (quantieme) version of its Grande Seconde view in gold as well as with enamel dials.More therefore, the 2014 Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Quantieme Ivory Enamel watches contain brand new movements which Jaquet Droz will utilize to help distinguish their timepieces. Jaquet Droz is part of the Swatch Group and obtained high-end movements from the team, but beginning with this new collection, the movements will be much simpler with better specs and an improved visual aesthetic.So let me start by discussing the moves used at the Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Quantieme Ivory Enamel watches. The larger and smaller diameter versions of this watch will have exactly the identical movement, which may have a automated rotor in a metal to match the case (either 18k red or white gold). The movement is that the Jaquet Droz grade 2660Q2. P automatic using a silicon hair spring and double electricity reserves. The motion operates at 4Hz (28,800 bph) and has a power reserve of 68 hours. The ribbon is impressively nice along with the work on the automated rotor is quite fantastic. This is actually the leadership Jaquet Droz needed to go in order to help rank not their designs, but their movements for the high-end consumer.
Jaquet Droz is about to officially announce their new automata-based minute repeater watch called The Bird Repeater. Yup, that’s right. Last March during Basel I got to view a computer rendering animation of the watch in action. While the minute repeater is activated a few things happen on the dial. Among those include a “moving” waterfall as well as a mother bird feeding a chick that hatches from an egg. Automaton birds are deeply part of Jaquet Droz’s original history. While the concept is “original,” the detailing and execution is really impressive.
This picture was taken of a finished Jaquet Droz Bird Repeater watch by our friends at Watchonsita – who swung by Jaquet Droz HQ to be the first to check the piece out. I hope to show you a live video of the watch in action soon. Look for more details on the overall watch coming up as well.
