Jaquet Droz starts strong with a new variant to the Grande Seconde collection by adding a chronograph. The movement is supplied by Manufacture Blancpain, and two versions are offered.
The chronograph is a monopusher via a coaxial pusher at the crown. Versions are offered: One in a red gold case with the counters aligned, and another two in SS case with an off-centered sub-dial layout in either a blue dial or a grey dial. To respect the integrity of the Grande Seconde formula, the seconds hands now becomes the chronograph seconds and the counters are coaxially laid out in the subdial at 6.
Next, the Grande Second collection also adds a World Timer. Available in a total of 4 versions in red gold with black enamel dial, red gold with an ivory enamel dial, in SS with a silver opaline dial and in SS with a black onyx dial.
Also new is a Grande Seconde Skelet-One Ceramic. Black ceramic case of 41.5mm diameter with an 18k white gold hour circle and indices. Power reserve of 68 hours. This adds to the Skelet-One collection of the Ceramic with red gold indices and black ceramic hour circle, and the Skelet-One in 18k red gold case.
Next a new automata called the Magic Lotus Automation. Featuring hand engraved and hand painted white MOP dial with a black onyx subdial. Handwound mechanical automation movement with push button triggering mechanism animating pond, carp and lotus flower. 43mm case diameter.
