Held in partnership with Shoppes at Four Seasons, this year’s Masters of Time will explore the idea of memories with a curated collection that celebrates how collectors and brands commemorate the moments they hold dear. Bringing together over 450 fine watches and jewelry masterpieces from 30 brands, DFS’ team of watches and jewelry experts has assembled an unprecedented collection that showcases the best of design, technology and heritage for both men and women.
About the ceramic white subdials are black printouts that indicate the hours and tens of thousands of seconds. Both subdials also possess a railroad-style track around the periphery to help in legibility. The hour and minute hands, in addition to the large running moments hands, are all made out of 18k red gold. To get a dash of colour, the crown can be made from 18k red gold. What’s also very cool is the Jaquet Droz Bird Watch Price Replica will include a fitting rolled-edge hand-made fabric strap. It looks really nice from the media photos, although being white, I am concerned it might get stained easily.There’s also a black ceramic version of the above-mentioned version known as the Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Black Ceramic Clous de Paris. In place of a pure white porcelain case, we have a black porcelain case. The overlapping subdials for your running and time seconds are, as you might have guessed, in black ceramic. Like the white model, the hour, minute and seconds hands are created out of 18k red gold, which contrasts strongly from the black dial. The crown, however, is black ceramic and not 18k red gold such as the white ceramic version. The watch also includes a fitting roll-edged hand-made black fabric strap.These two models are powered by the self-winding Jaquet Droz 2663A, which defeats at 4Hz and has a power reserve of 68 hours. On the black ceramic model, the motion is treated using ruthenium to provide it a dark appearance. In addition, its own rotor has also been coated with black PVD so it matches the black porcelain case.Finally, we’ve got the Grande Seconde Power Reserve Ceramic Clous de Paris. This comes at a 44mm black ceramic case, but it is slightly thicker at 13.03mm due to its motion. It’s mostly similar to the Grande Seconde Black Ceramic Clous de Paris view, except it’s a power reserve indicator on the dial at 9 o’clock. Such as the Grande Seconde Black Ceramic Clous de Paris watch, the Grande Seconde Power Reserve Ceramic Clous de Paris view has a black dial decorated with Clous de Paris guilloche, also 18k red gold palms for hours, minutes, and seconds. The power book scale is smartly marked with red gold, while the hand to the power reserve indicator is black-colored gold. All in all, the power reserve indicator was cleanly and neatly executed. Oh, this version has the exact same black cloth strap that echoes the dial feel as it will on every watch. Nice.
