Pocket watch Ivory Enamel

A watchmaking myth

The Watch Quote™ - September 19th, 2012



Eminently literary and utterly romantic...These days, the pocket watch invites the modern man to embrace its legend: its refined shape, the sense of a continuing mystery on which all eyes come to rest as it appears out of the silk lining of a jacket or from the depths of a waistcoat...



The pocket watch is a watchmaking myth that has endured through the centuries. Jaquet Droz is now bringing this poetic icon back to center stage. First of all, in order to gain greater recognition: that of a Manufacture, which, in 1785 conceived a pocket watch which would span the ages and would be the inspiring muse for the flagship model – the Grande Seconde. And also to pay homage to Pierre Jaquet-Droz, genius and driving force behind a creative spirit that will transcend the centuries and give life to a pocket watch from which The Pocket Watch Ivory Enamel naturally adopts the codes. This beautiful timepiece exemplifies a return to origins and has been designed to link the past with the future.



Embracing time by weaving links between the incredible treasures emerging in each period in history and between the richness of tradition and the elegance of the modern age: this is the nature of the new Pocket Watch Ivory Enamel by Jaquet Droz – an ambition orchestrated by outstanding expertise and the finest craftsmanship, with its ivory dial in Grand Feu enamel, its yellow gold case whose case back is covered by the brand secret signature: the cloverleaf, its delicately applied counters and its unique Guilloché decoration.

Hand engraved with the original Jaquet Droz signature and the individual number, The Pocket Watch Ivory Enamel, with its manual movement and 40 hour power reserve, pays tribute to a philosophy that has remained unchanged since the Age of Enlightenment.
