The iconic eccentric dial design outlines the number 8 with pure lines, which is highly recognizable. The Jaquet Droz Grande Second is a legend, and the master craftsman of the brand has continuously interpreted new chapters on this classic blueprint over the years.
In 2008, Jaquet Droz launched the first GrandeSecondeSW sports watch, adding a sporty version to the legendary classic, which has lasted for years. In 2014, the GrandeSecondeSW family added six new members, debuting with 45mm and 41mm dials, which are available in three modern colors: gray, soot, and blue. Optional, with the same color crocodile leather strap, Geneva stripes as a new element, make this series even more luxurious.
The Geneva stripe is an orthodox example of Swiss dial dial finishes, and today this classic finish is also chic on new models. In addition to making the regular series more and more clear and convenient when reading, it adds an unprecedented depth to the dial. At the same time, the precious alligator leather strap is used to replace the traditional rubber or metal strap, which is in harmony with the dial tone in color. Adhering to the tradition of excellence in craftsmanship and aesthetics, Jaquet Droz continues to innovate. Every small evolution of the watch comes from its careful consideration of elegance and luxury.
