The name of the great Pierre-Jaguet Droz, who created original wrist watches Jaguet Droz, became a part of the history of his native town La Chaux-de-Fonds, which is world-wide known for the production of Swiss watches brands, forever. Being 17 year old already in 1738 he graduated from the university and opened his first manufacture in his native town, later manufactures in London and Geneva were opened. To attract attention to his favorite creation – watches, the inventor created mechanic toys, which “could” breathe, write texts, play organ, draw. The King of Spain Ferdinand VI and the King of France Louis XVI, Chinese Emperor and nobility of Japan, India were admired by the products of the master.
The work of the great master can only be recognized at first sight, this is the thing that makes the watches of renowned cabinotiers famous, which were recognized masterpieces. Today the brand of wrist watches Jague Droz carefully preserves the traditions of the master using, for example, his know-how technique called Paillonne, which has existed for250 years already. Its peculiarity is in the fact that fragments of the thinnest golden or silver sheet are mounted into the enamel on the dial and filigree patterns are created of them. In the Grande Seconde collection, which is incredibly popular even today, Droz used his favorite number 8 – a symbol of infinity placing an additional second counter right under the hour one. According to the name of the collection (“Big Second”) the second hand is the biggest and it emphasizes the value of time for each of us. The principle of the golden section is used in the location of counters, their proportions. Nowadays the collection continues its triumphal way to the hearts of its admirers, the desire to buy genuine Jaguet Droz watches in the contemporary design does not decrease. That is why several various series of Grande Seconde were released: powerful and reliable sportive watches, elegant Grande Seconde Lady, models with minute repeater, tourbillion and even with a mounted piece of meteorite.
The mechanisms of the watches, the work of which can be enjoyed through the transparent ыapphire glass, have been decorated with secret facsimile in the form of the trefoil for more than 200 years already. The rotor, bridges, platinum are covered with the complex ancient guilloche “Geneva waves” and “sun rays”. But it is not only a visual look that differs luxurious Jaguet Droz watches of the famous Swiss manufacture. Genial Pierre-Jaguet Droz improved a winding device of the watch first without the winding key – with a mechanism oscillator, later the watches with automatic oscillator. His Geneva manufacture, which was in charge of Henri-Louis, the son of the inventor, was producing restricted series of elite watches, besides the number of unique repeaters, chronographs, watches with automatons and other complex functions was equal to 8, 28 or 88 exemplars.
The members of the friendly Droz family were dying and the manufacture was passing into oblivion gradually too. A new era for it began in 2000, when a renowned Swatch group purchased the company. Since that time elegance and luxury were made absolute and at the same time a loyal price for Jaguet Droz watches suited the admirers of status accessories.
