Only Watches Replica 2015 — Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Paillonnée

Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Paillonnée for Only Watch 2015

Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Paillonnée for Only Watch 2015

As a long-time partner of Only Watch, Jaquet Droz is back this year with the unique model of the Petite Heure Minute Paillonnée.

Presented last year at Baselworld as part of a collection using the decoration technique of paillonné enamelling and this one made for Only Watch stands out because of the the red colour of the enamel on the dial.

Handed down from the goldsmiths of the Renaissance, paillonné enamelling consists of creating a raised motif using tiny pieces of gold leaf, applied one by one with great dexterity. This is then coupled with the particularly delicate work of enamelling to obtain both the required colours and the translucent depth of the enamel to reveal the sunray decoration.

But there is more to this luxury replica Watch than “just decoration” to make it one-of-a-kind. The movement is equipped with a silicon spiral, a material whose flexibility, resistance to shocks, temperature and pressure variations, and magnetic fields guarantees perfect stability over time. It’s the first time that Jaquet Droz incorporates the material in a Petite Heure Minute.

Replica Jaquet Droz Grande Heure Minute Quantième

Jaquet Droz Grande Heure Minute Quantième

The Grande Heure Minute Quantième is the latest creation of Jaquet Droz. Its steel case comes in two sizes, 39 or 43 mm, with silvered opaline or blue Côtes de Genève dial.

While it is a three hands and date replica Watch, it is far from being boring. I’m particularly found of the seconds hand and its red tip that brings a bit of playfulness into an overall sober design that is so typical of Jaquet Droz.

The date window at 6 o’clock is another interesting feature of this cheap replica Watch, its shape reminds me an embrasure on a medieval fortress. Apart its unique design, it also gives a lot of depth to the dial. On the last day of the month the date is displayed in red.

The Jaquet Droz Grande Heure Minute Quantième is powered by the JD1150P automatic calibre.

The Jaquet Droz Grande Heure Minute Quantième is powered by the JD1150P automatic calibre, offereing 68 hours of power reserve.

The Grande Heure Minute Quantième is powered by the automatic JD1150P, a silicon spiral movement introduced in 2014. Silicon is not only non-magnetic, but is also unaffected by changes in temperature and pressure, guaranteeing optimal performance over time and in the most extreme conditions. At present, there are only a few replica Watchmaking brands able to fashion this both flexible and extremely resistant material. The polished aesthetic of the movement, with its openworked rotor, is visible through the exhibition case-back.

As an entry level model, they will retail at around $10,000 US.
