This year, Swiss watchmaker Jaquet Droz has come up with some truly amazing timepieces like the new Grande Seconde SW Côtes de Genève model and a set of three limited edition Paillonné enameled timepieces. And now luxury watchmaker has finally launched the latest version of the Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Tourbillon Aventurine which was previewed at this year’s Baselworld show. Jaquet Droz describes their newest creation as a timepiece where the watchmaker’s expertise and the jeweler’s art become one, and by looking at it, we believe that’s the best way to introduce the limited edition watch. The Grande Seconde Tourbillon Aventurine features a dial and oscillating weight cut from a disc of aventurine and for the very first time the display of the tourbillon is embellished with mineral glitter to mimic a starlit night sky.
Housed in a white gold case which has a diameter of 39mm, the aventurine dial is covered with sparkling diamonds on the bezel and lugs, as well as around the contours of the famous figure-eight-motif subdials. In total, the watch features 382 brilliant-cut diamonds. The self winding mechanism is fitted with a power reserve of 7 days and a custom-made piece of aventurine is set into the 18K white gold oscillating weight. Only 28 examples of the watch will go on sale but the price is yet to be confirmed.
