Jaquet Droz - Grande Seconde Off-Centered “Meteorite” and “Stromatolite”

The Grande Seconde Off-Centered by Jaquet Droz is a timepiece that lends itself to a great number of  variations. The latest interpretations come with dials made of meteorite and stromatolite.

Jaquet Droz - Grande Seconde Off-Centered “Meteorite”

The Grande Seconde Off-Centered “Meteorite” features a dial that is cut out by hand from a fragment of asteroid that penetrated the Earth’s atmosphere intact. The extreme rarity of meteorites is due to the fact that most of them burn up before landing with only a few rare fragments reaching our planet's surface.

Cutting out from meteorites disk shapes to fit the dial of the watch is a challenging process that requires great skills and dexterity as well as exclusive cutting techniques due to the extraordinary density and hardness of these solid pieces of debris composed of iron and nickel.

It is the nature of meteorites that makes each dial a piece unique.
