Jaquet Droz Quantieme Perpetuel Ceramique

        Among the most renowned members of the elitist world of the Haute Horology, Jaquet-Droz traces its roots back to the Age of Enlightenment when a visionary watchmaker, Pierre Jaquet-Droz, founded it and initiated a long heirloom of master watchmakers dedicated to creating genuine masterpieces of watch-making mastery for the kings, queens and emperors of the time.

        Fateful to its life-guiding mission of cultivating the spirit of innovation, reform and excellence, the brand never ceased to create outstanding timepieces of an immeasurable value, timeless refinement and elegance that have always fascinated the watch-connoisseurs worldwide.

        Recently the brand released another exquisite timepiece, which brings the well-known Jaquet-Droz high-class elegance to the perpetual calendar horological complication, therefore creating a remarkable wristwatch for gentlemen defined by sobriety and refinement, the new Jaquet Droz Quantieme Perpetuel Ceramique watch.

        The model is a superb combination of high-tech materials and mechanical sophistication; it features a robust, slightly oversized case measuring 44 mm in diameter, manufactured from sleek-looking black ceramic obtained through a special technique, which ensures 30 meters water-resistance.

        The watchmaker’s mastery impresses from the first glance at the timepiece’s superb black opaline dial that makes a beautiful contrast against the ceramic case, standing as a as the perfect achievement of the brand’s technical and aesthetical mastery. It interestingly displays sunken counters for the small seconds and months; a blackened gold ring secured to the dial with two blackened screws, reveals the retrograde scales for date and day, printed in contrasting white. The timepiece features blackened gold hands while the hands from the sub-dials and the retrograde hands feature distinctive red tips; the month counter is fitted with a small circular aperture located at 12 o’clock position that indicates the leap year.

        At the heart of this sophisticated wristwatch beats a self-winding movement – the Jaquet Droz 5863 caliber, which wonderfully reveals its superb-finish through an exhibition case-back; this movement oscillates at a high frequency of 28,800 beats per hour and confers the advantage of 68 hours power reserve. The eye-catching Jaquet Droz Quantieme Perpetuel Ceramique watch comes coupled with a comfortable black natural rubber strap. Due to accommodating, the extremely sophisticated perpetual calendar complication this timepiece surely is a coveted collectable item and the dream of every watch-connoisseur but for many of them it will remain just a dream because it is a very exclusive line of just 88 pieces, and it will come for a price tag equally exclusive.
