Its shimmering contrasts with the red gold of the case and the inner bezel ring, further enhanced by a river of diamonds. Precious and refined, the Grande Seconde Tourbillon Mother-of-Pearl has secrets of its own, beginning with the white mother-of-pearl adornment on the oscillating weight, and the bridges with a fanned Côtes de Genève motif. One of the masterpieces of horological complications resides at 12 o'clock: the tourbillon. A miniature mechanical sculpture, this is the first time Jaquet Droz has given its tourbillon a silicon balance-spring and pallet horns, the guarantee of absolute and lasting precision. 88-piece limited series.
