Featuring a blue aventurine or silvered opaline version, this complication embodies the magic performed by the stars and the passage of time.
Two faces for one and the same spirit, embodied in the fine balance of lines, the set of lance-shaped and serpentine hands, the layout of the Roman numeral indicators and the seven stars surrounding the Moon - eight stars in total, an iconic figure in the history of Jaquet Droz. The smiling symbolic star of the night has been designed as a benevolent face, playing hide-and-seek according to the phases of the moon.

Behind their apparent simplicity, these two new versions of the Éclipse hide their complications: indication of the moon phases, but also the day, month and date. The new openwork oscillating weight and the Côtes de Genève decor can be admired from the back of these watches which are fitted with a silicon spring and flat bridges that match the rhodium treatment and engraving of all the components.

These two versions of the Éclipse have opted for a stainless steel case, with a bezel set with 176 brilliant cut diamonds in the 39 mm version.
