Unveiled in 2012, the Petite Heure Minute by Jaquet Droz unleashed a new style of feminine watch, thanks to a case that measured a mere 35mm in diameter and offered a new dimension to the hours and minutes on the dial, which were off-centre at 12 o'clock. The dials, which by definition are unique pieces, have been cut out of mother-of-pearl of minerals and offer exclusive colours that play with the light as the wrist moves.

The different shades of garnet and rose in the "Cœur de rubis" mixes with the warm tones of 18-carat red gold on the case, hands and buckle. A successful marriage, it is also available with the dial, bezel and lugs fully paved with brilliant-cut diamonds in a beautiful balance between metal and mineral, underscored by the moiré effect of a hand-stitched bordeaux satin strap.
