Introducing: The Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Moon Phase

The new Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Moon Phase in red gold with terrific feu veneer dial.

The new Grande Seconde Moon is accessible in three variants: tempered steel with opaline dial, treated steel with Onyx dial, and 18k red gold with grayish grande feu lacquer dial. The dials includes a similar figure-eight design, with the hours and minutes showed on the top more modest dial and the moonphase on the base dial alongside the date and the running seconds.

The case estimates 43mm, which is fairly enormous however not strange for the Grande Seconde. These are quite often greater watches. The Grande Seconde is most popular for the multi-layered dials with exquisite highlights coordinated into the fundamental format. The Moon Phase is the same. As referenced, the date and running seconds are shown effortlessly on the external edges of the base dial, right where they are on other Grande Seconde watches, while the moonphase is appeared in an enormous opening that involves the top portion of that register. For the onyx form, the moonphase circle is likewise made of onyx, while the polish and opaline dial models have a blued steel plate. In like manner, on the two models with steel cases, the stars and moon are made of white gold, while the red gold watch has coordinating red gold stars and moon. In the two cases, the stars are made of 18k gold and the actual moon is made of 22k gold.

There is additionally a steel form of this watch with an onyx dial and onyx moonphase disc.

The most exemplary looking model has a silvered dial with blue hands and a splendid blue moonphase disc.

The watch is controlled by the the Jaquet Droz type 2660QL3, a programmed development with silicon hairspring and two barrels. It has a 68-hour power hold, yet the most great thing is the way that the moonphase (whenever set accurately) just should be changed by one day like clockwork and 46 days. It has what Jaquet Droz calls the “system 135,” which is a 135-tooth gear that empowers this degree of precision. The more fundamental and more average method of making a moonphase show is with a 59-tooth gear, yet that loses one day like clockwork, seven months, and 20 days. In any case, one should take note of that the “component 135” is anything but another marvel and not explicit to this watch.
