Grande Seconde Minute Repeater

Once the prerogative of a few watch lovers, the Grande Seconde Minute Repeater is now recognised as an absolute masterpiece of fine watchmaking complications. Tradition and innovation have driven each stage in the development of this timepiece whose design, featuring two intertwined dials, extols the Manufacture’s legendary number: the 8.

A formidable challenge because this virtuoso complication plays real music on demand, with a range of high and low notes that tell us where we are` in the cycle of time-To within one minute. Two tiny hammers ring out a delicate symphony that has never ceased to fascinate lovers of fine watchmaking since the Age of Enlightenment.

Because it demands total mastery of an infinite complexity, the Grande Seconde Minute Repeater deserves the most beautiful setting. Today, Jaquet Droz presents it with an ivory
Grand Feu enamelled dial, unique in both tint and grain, a generously rounded case in red gold and, above all, its legendary face: the Grande Seconde.
