A New Moon Rises On The Moon Phase Big Seconds Watch Series

Following the success of the first series, Jaquet Droz presents four new GrandeSecondeMoon watches: different from gold, stainless steel, large fire enamel and aventurine Combined, it brings out the charming charm of astronomical moon phases.

 If the beauty of roundness is what watchmakers have been pursuing, then the moon phase large second hand watch may be the perfect masterpiece that watchmakers are pursuing. Jaquet Droz added the date display moon phase function to the ‘8’ dial on the GrandeSecondeMoon, which perfectly matches the geometric shape of the eccentric large second dial at 6 o’clock. The new GrandeSecondeMoon watch combines the most practical time (hour, minute, second, date) with the poetic 22K gold moon phase display.

 Jaquet Droz first integrated the complex feature of the moon phase into the large second hand watch in 2017, which is an aesthetic challenge for the complex function watch. The key is to keep the classic design created by Pierre Jaquet-Droz 280 years ago, while adding the unique poetic flavor of the moon. To this end, Jaquet Droz once again cleverly used dials of different sizes and different materials to add different members to the moon phase large seconds hand watch.

 Following the great success of the first month phase seconds watch, the brand has launched two new light-colored works (with a large flame enamel dial, a 43 mm white gold model, and an opal dial, 39 mm steel Watch), both are equipped with a blue steel moon phase plate decorated with 18K white gold and stars. The other two new works use more mysterious tones (with a large black fire enamel dial, a 43 mm diameter red gold model, and a diamond dial, a 39 mm diameter stainless steel model). The first new work is equipped with Black onyx moon phase disk, the second is equipped with aventurine moon phase disk.

 The latter is particularly noteworthy, as this is the first time that the GrandeSeconde series has a 39 mm diameter women’s watch made of aventurine and equipped with a moon phase function. Gold diamond, once known as ‘goldstone’, emits brilliant light due to its silvery inclusions in the glass body, so it was selected by Jaquet Droz to make this watch. The work uses amethyst in dark blue tones, and the tiny inclusions are shining like a starry night sky. Each aventurine is unique, and each GrandeSecondeMoon watch made from it is also different.

 Jaquet Droz has designed a more precise operating mechanism than the current ordinary moon phase display, injecting vitality into the moon phase function of the watch. The precision movement of the watch is the result of the research and development project of the brand ‘Mechanism135’ (135 mechanism), which is driven by a JaquetDroz2660QL3 movement with 135 teeth. The driving gear of the traditional movement is 59 teeth, and there will be a 1-day error every 2 years and 8 months. The moon phase display watch of Jaquet Droz is equipped with the cleverly hidden in the lugs. Calibration device, only need to manually adjust the error of 1 day every 122 years. The movement of the GrandeSecondeMoon is not only accurate, but also close to the actual moon phase cycle (that is, 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes, and 2.8 seconds).

 The movement uses a silicon escapement for extremely precise movements. In addition, these four new moon phase Grand Second Watches (GrandeSecondeMoon) also add a new poetic charm to the series. The moon is a celestial body loved by watchmakers. It slowly moves on the dial to show the gloomy and absent. It transforms the mystery of the universe between the wrists. It is unique and poetic, showing time in a new perspective.

Napoleon Conquered Europe Breguet Conquered Napoleon

 Speaking of Napoleon, many people will remember his famous saying ‘Soldier who is not quite a general, not a good soldier’, and also the famous Battle of Waterloo. In fact, Napoleon is also very fond of clocks. Among his numerous ‘soft and soft furniture’, Baodi is the most eye-catching.
 The Louvre cooperated with the Beijing Palace Museum to launch the Napoleon I exhibition, and as one of Breguet’s important customers, Breguet’s classic timepieces were also displayed. Known as the ‘Da Vinci’ in the watch industry-Breguet has an inextricable bond with Napoleon.
At that time, Napoleon loved to fight everywhere but always advocated peace. He was always keen on science, culture and art. He was a leader who knew how to combine politics with art. It is also such a monarch who has a nearly critical attitude towards art, but it is one of Baodi’s most determined fans from beginning to end.
 It is said that out of fascination with the accuracy of Breguet’s timepieces, Napoleon purchased the first travel clock with time and date display, a reed watch and a perpétuelle reed watch from Breguet in 1798 and brought them to Egyptian battlefield.
