First published: 03-06-2011

Fashion watch enthusiasts looking for simple elegance from their next timepiece may want to feast their eyes on new tickers from Jaquet Droz.

Entitled the Grande Seconde Tourbillon, the two devices should be able to stand out to watch fans thanks to their easy-to-read dials.

Consumers will have the choice between either a white-gold case design featuring a Cotes de Geneve dial or a red-gold case offering which contains a dial splashed in a Grand Feu style.

Both fashion watches pack in a figure-eight style sub-dial, which features the time via hour and minute markers, as well as a glimpse into the inner workings of the timepiece under a seconds counter.

Jaquet Droz, a watch company which was formed in the mid 1700s under the tutelage of Pierre Jaquet Droz, has also included a transparent case back on the timepieces' design and a power reserve of seven days, for further practicality.
