Among them are Swiss watchmaker Jaquet Droz who will be taking with them to the Geneva show an eye-catching new woman’s timepiece called the Grande Seconde Tourbillon Mother-of-Pearl.
Inspired by the age of Enlightenment, the watch features a 39mm red gold case with brilliant cut diamonds glittering on the bezel and lugs, and a sapphire crystal caseback.
On the mother of pearl dial are two subdials that form a figure 8, while the time is indicated on roman numeral indices with blue steel hands.
Inside is a tourbillon, which, for the first time in the brand’s history, has been fitted with a silicone balance spring and pallet horns.
The Jaquet Droz 25JD.Si, self-winding tourbillon movement is equipped with a 7-day power reserve and includes a gold oscillating weight adorned with white mother-of-pearl.
The Grande Seconde Tourbillon Mother-of-Pearl timepiece will be on display at Baselworld between 27 – 30 March.
Founded by Pierre Jaquet Droz in 1738, Jaquet Droz is one of the world’s oldest watch brands.
