Jaquet Droz - Grande Seconde Chronograph

The Grande Seconde is the most emblematic timepiece of Jaquet Droz. Over the years, the Swiss brand created several variations of this exquisitely elegant timepiece enriching it with complications like dual time, calendar and moon phases.

2019 marks the entrance of a new complication in the collection with the Grande Seconde Chronograph.

Equipped with an exclusive movement, the new model features a perfectly integrated monopusher chronograph. An inaugural, limited series piece with an enamel dial is complemented by three permanent additions to the collection.

As it is easy to imagine, integrating a chronograph function in a distinctive dial layout like the one of the Grande Seconde is a big challenge. In fact, a new movement, exclusive to Jaquet Droz, had to be custom-designed and manufactured.

Beating at 21,600 vibrations per hour and delivering a 40-hour power reserve, the new Calibre 25M5R uses a column wheel construction and incorporates a silicon balance spring that guarantees resistance to magnetic fields and temperature variations. The volumes and proportions of this calibre have been tailored to the specific geometry of the Grande Seconde.

The chronograph function of the new model beats the seconds making them advance in steps of one second instead of an apparently smooth sweeping action. Facilitating the measurement and reading of shorter durations of time, this further complication is perfectly in line with the legacy of the brand. In fact, a Grande Seconde Deadbeat complication was created by Jaquet Droz in the 18th century.

The new Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Chronograph is presented in a limited inaugural edition (numerus clausus of only 88 pieces), along with three permanent additions to the collection.

The red gold limited edition (ref. J007733200) boasts a precious Grand Feu enamel dial in an ivory tone which is a clear tribute to the earliest pocket watches by Pierre Jaquet-Droz.

The Arabic and Roman numerals on the dial are produced using Petit Feu enamel, another delicate firing technique which combined with Grand Feu enameling produces dial of unique allure and ever-lasting brilliance.

The hour, minute and date hands are crafted from red gold while chronograph seconds and minute hands are in blued steel. The minute and second displays on the chronograph are in blue Petit Feu enamel to maximize the readability of the time. The retrograde date is indicated by a red-tipped gold hand that is never impeded by the chronograph seconds hand.

The aesthetic result is truly excellent leaving intact the beautiful proportions that define the figure 8. And thanks to the adoption of a monopusher chronograph, the lines of the Grande Seconde are preserved: no other push-pieces are needed to stop, start or reset the chronograph.

The three versions in stainless steel, also housed in cases measuring 43 mm x 14.83 mm, differ for the off-centered dial and the crown shifted to 4 o’clock.

The dial is available in a choice of sand-blasted silver (ref. J007830240), blue (ref. J007830241) or taupe gray (ref. J007830242). It is finished by hand using a new dry sand-blasting technique that accentuates the depth of the graining. The blue and gray tones are a first for Jaquet Droz.

In all four versions the oscillating weight is skeletonized to reveal the beautiful finishes of the hand-assembled manufacture movement.


Matched to rolled-edge hand-made alligator straps, the new Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Chronograph is resistant to a pressure of 3 bar (around 30 metres / 100 feet).

Prices: Euro 29,500 + local taxes for the red gold limited edition and Euro 18,500 + local taxes for the steel models. jaquetdroz.com

  1. Both are nice but I prefer the dial layout of the gold model and the crown at 3.
