La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine
In unveiling the Grande Seconde SW Red Gold, Jaquet Droz is giving its sports collection URBAN*LONDON the recognition it so richly deserves. This new watch combines technical performance and ultimate elegance of design – red and black interact for dynamic visual impact.
Red gold is not only used for the case, but also for the three-dimensional ring circling both dials on this model, with its superb, masculine lines. Red gold gleams from the fluted bezel with its deliberately assertive design, the applied plates, the hollowed horns, the hands and the folding clasp – whose shining surface contrasts with the dark matt of the rubber strap – not to mention the dial and crown. This beautifully balanced design is carefully thought out down to the last detail: the watch hands are tipped with a coat of Super-LumiNova.
Featuring a mechanical self-winding double-barrel movement and a 18-carat white gold sport oscillating weight, the Grande Seconde SW Red Gold is water resistant to 5 bars (50 meters). Featuring superior resistance, architecture and design, this exceptional watch meets the high expectations and standards of the true aficionado of superior time-keeping mechanisms.
