Jaquet Droz has recently introduced the Petite Heure Minute new design watches dedicated to three symbolic creatures from Asia, the Caribbean, and Africa. Bringing together the very best of the Swiss watchmaking tradition and artisans’ mastery, the Carps, the Pink Flamingo, and the Lion invite everyone to travel to new horizons with Pierre Jaquet-Droz!
Inspired by the innovative spirit and boundless curiosity of the company’s founder, the new Jaquet Droz designer watches perfectly combine black Grand Feu enamel and miniature painting techniques with creative approach and modernity. Moreover, created by the brand’s best enamellers and painters, these stunning high-end luxury watches are distinguished not only by technically masterful use of material, but also by unique aesthetics that sets them apart from many other designer watches.
Petite Heure Minute Carps
The Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Carps comes in an elegant 39 mm 18k red gold case fitted with a black alligator strap. Its deep black enamel dial depicts the graceful multicolored koi carp that swim among lotus flowers and reeds, reliving the Pierre Jaquet-Droz’s fascination for the Far East. This beautiful luxury watch is equipped with an in-house self-winding mechanical movement that ensures 68 hours of power reserve. The Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Carps model is limited to only 28 pieces worldwide, with the serial number engraved on the case back.
Petite Heure Minute Pink Flamingo
The Pink Flamingo version of the latest Petite Heure Minute new design watches is perhaps the most eye-catching one, largely due to the bold plumage of the Caribbean flamingo depicted on the black Grand Feu enamel dial. This model is enclosed in a 39 mm 18k red gold case encrusted with 248 brilliant-cut diamonds (total of 1.74 carats) and complemented by a black alligator strap with a diamond-set 18k red gold ardillon buckle. The Petite Heure Minute Pink Flamingo is powered by a self-winding mechanical movement built on 28 jewels. This luxury watch is also limited to 28 pieces, with the serial number engraved on the case back.
Petite Heure Minute Lion
The Petite Heure Minute Lion is the largest model in the range. It comes in a 43 mm 18k red gold case presented on a black alligator strap. Its black enamel dial depicts the king of the beasts encircled with a mane in all shades of brown, russet, and black, showing the power and strength of this noble creature. Just like two previous models, this one is also equipped with a reliable self-winding mechanical movement and comes in a limited edition of only 28 copies. The serial number is engraved on the case back.
All three Petite Heure Minute new design watches feature Jaquet Droz iconic off-centered hours and minutes with 18k red gold hands. However, the most important thing about them is that they not just tell time – they tell a story, awaking the desire to travel around the world.
