My favourite Dress Watch company has just released yet another Grail watch that I wish I could afford! One of these days I will get my hands on a 43mm+ Jaquet Droz, and if I’m lucky, a Ceramic one! While these Ceramic Models are on Rubber straps and are less dressy than their Stainless and Gold brethren, they still fit the bill.
Case Material: Black Ceramic
Case Diameter: 44mm
Movement: Jaquet Droz Caliber 2663, 28,000 v.p.h, 30 Jewels
From Jaquet Droz:
“Contemporary in spirit, this timepiece displays an elegance that is intended to last: the 44 mm watchcase is made of resistant ceramic, whose color and radiance will never fade. The Manufacture has now complemented this exceptionally strong material, the hands in black gold with a touch of red on the tip of the seconds hand and the six markers it indicates. This new chromatic signature, which suggests an authentic, highly refined luxury that is entirely contemporary, brings a new dynamism to the two interlinked circles and it strengthens the compelling power of the number 8, the Manufacture’s symbol of good fortune. The same quest for perfection yielded the opaline black dial, and by the contrast between the matt face and the gleaming ring, carefully integrated.”
