GRANDE SECONDE MOON IVORY ENAMEL
AN ASTRONOMICAL MOON PHASE FOR THE NEW 2017 GRANDE SECONDE !
The Grande Seconde is an iconic JAQUET DROZ creation. Fine, Elegant, Classical, the timepiece has a lot of interesting details. For instance, the shape of the number « 8 » appears when you look at the hour/minutes and seconds circles. The red colour of the tip date hand and date number 31 is discreet and clear enough to quickly read the indication.
The Astronomical Moon Phase (on its blued steel disc) is beautifully executed ! The complication requires an adjustment every 122 years and 46 days… In other words, the « next generation » will use the corrector at 8 o’clock enabling its setting efficiently.
We really enjoyed the finishing on the back of the calibre 2660QL3 and the triangle apertures on the oscillating weight.
Launched at Baselworld 2017, the GRANDE SECONDE MOON IVORY ENAMEL follows a traditional and solid collection adding a nice complication behind the big second hand.
Well done! JAQUET DROZ.
