L'Éclipse

The magic of the Moon

The Watch Quote™ - April 5th, 2010

It is the light that catches every eye, the heavenly body that fires poetic dreams in the dark of night. The magic of the Moon inhabits one of the legendary Jaquet Droz models that the Manufacture has just reinvented.



The Eclipse is a real feat of watchmaking; it not only displays the day, month and year, but also the phases of the Moon which have fascinated astronomers, explorers and artists of all times and every culture. On the dial, a Moon with a smiling face inspired by 19th century engravings playfully appears and disappears behind a matt black disk that sharply offsets the brilliance of the dial. Evolving day after day, subtly changing with each new dawn, the Moon in all its forms watches over this exceptional timepiece.



This mechanical performance, together with the genuine visual spectacle, has been achieved with great aesthetic purity. Within the 43 mm red-gold case, an intensely black Grand Feu enameled dial welcomes 8 stars, inspired as much by the favorite number of the Manufacture as by the symbolism of the star that is so dear to Jaquet Droz.
