On the top of my list of dress watches that I would really love to own, but can’t afford (especially with the markets the way they are right now! Blech!), are Jacquet Droz. I love the simple lines, coupled with significantly sized cases. They are like the minimalist version of F.P. Journe, in my opinion.

Their new model, the Ceramic Power Reserve, uses high-tech ceramics combined with their signature styling to acheive a watch that is both class, and tech all in one. The case measures 44m, and the movement is a Jaquet Droz caliber 4063D with 30 jewels. Power reserve is a respectable 68 hours.

Some other very cool models from Jacquet Droz include the Grande Seconds, and the Grande Seconde Decentree:
