Pre Baselworld 2015 – Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Sunstone

The story started centuries ago, on the Venetian Island of Murano, where an artisan accidentally spilt some small shards of metal in the vitrous paste, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise and gave rise to aventurine glass. The word ‘avventura’ means adventure in Italian, and till date it is one of the most fascinating materials to work with.

The Jaquet Droz Sunstone collection has radiant gold coloured dials made of Aventurine glass with shimmering flecks of gold scintillate.
