Jacques De Lo Presents A New Masterpiece, The Mother Of Pearl Mother-of-pearl Tourbillon Large Second Hand, Combining Feminine Charm And Exquisite Watchmaking Craftsmanship

The Grande Seconde has a place in the watchmaking legend of Jaquet Droz. This watch was born in the age of Enlightenment and revolutionized the watchmaking conventions of time only with its bold design. Pierre Jaquet-Droz ingeniously turned time into a fascinating glory feather, shining the imprint of travel. The Jaquet Droz brand was born in the eighteenth century, and the Grande Seconde condenses the spirit of this era.

   Today, Jaquet Droz reinterprets this classic model, creating a new model for women’s watches. For this reason, the artisan masters choose mother-of-pearl, a material that can shine brilliantly. The mother-of-pearl is delicate and fragile. It requires extremely delicate and ingenious techniques to prevent it from breaking. With a long tradition of mineral dials, Jaquet Droz is able to master a complete production process and once again create beautiful works. The magnificent moire effect complements the 39mm diameter red gold case, bezel and buckle set with brilliant-cut diamonds. The Roman numeral hour and minute indexes add a touch of elegance to the watch, contrasting with the blue steel hands. The Grande Seconde Tourbillon Mother-of-Pearl with a white satin strap contains secrets: the white gold mother-of-pearl is decorated with white mother-of-pearl, and the movement bridge is decorated with fan-shaped Geneva stripes.
   The Grande Seconde Tourbillon Mother-of-Pearl is exquisite and delicate, precious, exuding a soft and graceful temperament, and is equipped with a classic masterpiece of watch complications: the tourbillon. The function of the tourbillon is to offset the effect of gravity on the mechanical device and show the infinite charm of the precise mechanism. For the first time, Jaquet Droz equipped the tourbillon with a silicon pallet and a balance spring, giving this dazzling masterpiece a high degree of precision. Silicon is a magical material, flexible and hard, does not oxidize, and is not affected by magnetic fields, non-extreme temperature differences and air pressure. The silicon balance spring ensures that the Grande Seconde Tourbillon Mother-of-Pearl is accurate and reliable for a long time. The Grande Seconde Tourbillon Mother-of-Pearl has a 7-day power reserve, has an elegant design and excellent technical performance, is exquisite and precious, and precious. This model is limited to 88 pieces. The contour of the number 8 echoes the dial design, which sparkles with the soft light of mother-of-pearl and the brilliant light of diamonds.
