Immediately identifiable by its two off-centered dials that describe the figure eight, the Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde is regularly reinterpreted by the brand’s artisans.

In 2008, Jaquet Droz launched the Grande Seconde SW, a sporty reworking of this model. A new version is enhancing the line today, complete with alligator leather straps and new Côtes de Genève decoration.

The famous Côtes de Genève ornamental pattern is decorating the dial of this new model in anthracite gray. A series of regular lines, the pattern highlights the watch's features and gives it depth.  The traditional rubber and metal strap of the Grande Seconde SW has been replaced by the fine luster of an alligator leather strap in a color to match the dial.

Jaquet Droz will unveil several other variations of this watch at Baselworld 2014.
