Tourbillon Power Reserve Black Opaline Red Gold by Jaquet Droz
The "Tourbillon Power Reserve Black Opaline Red Gold" (j028033201) belongs to Jaquet Droz's "Complication La-Chaux-de-Fonds" collection. This timepiece is limited to 28 pieces. It features a dial in black opaline and is housed in a red gold case. This watch is suitable for men. The round case is 47mm in diameter and waterproof up to 3 bar (approximately 30 m water depth). The transparent case back allows to admire the movement.
The watch is based on a hand-wound Jaquet Droz JD3 mechanical movement offering a power reserve of 88 hours and indicators for hours (off-centered) and minutes (off-centered). The movement has an indicator for the date. As regulating organ, the caliber relies on a tourbillon which causes the balance wheel and the escapement to rotate slowly. In the days of pocket watches, the tourbillon increased the accuracy of the watch by preventing the minute components from working with or against the gravity for a prolonged period of time. Today, the mechanism mostly serves an aethetic and emotional purpose and is a testament of the manufacturer's watchmaking abilities.
The watch is carried on a black alligator leather strap with a red gold folding clasp. Jaquet Droz asks its official retailers to sell the watch at a price point of about 201'360 CHF. Use the "Contact Shop" button to reach out to an official shop of your choice for their offer."
