Big seconds series watches embody the essence of JAQUET DROZ watchmaking technology. The brand has launched different styles of large seconds dial. The new One watch series is a subversion of the past. For the first time, it uses a hollow design with a synthetic sapphire dial. At the time of the 280th anniversary of Jacques Dro’s founding, the large second hand skeleton One watch series was an important milestone in the history of the brand.

Jacques Dro’s large seconds hand series is first hollowed out, allowing the precise structure of the movement to be displayed in front of the wearer’s eyes

This timepiece is designed to unravel the mystery of the exquisite mechanism inside the large second hand watch, while retaining the classic appearance of Jacques Dro’s signature number ‘8’. To this end, Jacques de Roy retains the simple aesthetic characteristics of the faceplate. The 12 o’clock position is set with Roman numerals, and the legendary eccentric hour and minute display is set. The original aesthetic inspiration of the large second hand series, with clever cutouts and decorative details.

The large second hand skeleton One watch abandons the traditional faceplate design, but still uses sapphire material to make the eccentric hour and minute dial and large second dial of the number ‘8’, thereby presenting the beauty of the movement structure to a greater extent.

As the first hollowed out watch launched by Jacques Dro, it retains the hours, minutes and seconds display design and the white space on the faceplate. Jacques Dro subtly conceals the movement’s bridge, and the hour, minute and second hands shine brightly with a new transparent aesthetic.

The 2663 SQ movement equipped with the watch is hollowed out even with the automatic disk. The full view of the movement structure can be observed from the back of the watch. The movement is equipped with a dual barrel and can output 68 hours of kinetic energy

The large second hand slowly rotates on the synthetic sapphire disc, attracting the eyes to appreciate the complicated structure of the skeletonized movement from the side. The main splint is also completely hollowed out. The design of the watch eliminates the traditional face plate. The new design makes the field of vision wider and the structure of the movement can be clearly seen. The hour and minute hands at 12 o’clock rotate on a synthetic sapphire hour dial with a gold base. The whole movement is fixed by 5 specific screws. For the first time, Jacques Droe used this process, derived from a system commonly used in ordnance production, and borrowed and adopted by the brand team. The gold automatic disc is also hollowed out, allowing light to penetrate and illuminate the inside of the movement. The large second hand skeleton One watch is equipped with a double barrel, silicon balance spring and pallet fork. Its 2663 SQ movement is manually assembled by craftsmen. As a result, this model became the first large seconds watch to present the dynamic beauty of the internal machinery.
