Jaquet Droz: Petite Heure Minute Cuprite

Jaquet Droz has launched a new limited-edition Petite Heure Minute Cuprite to celebrate Valentine’s Day. This new creation embraces a palette of unique hues in its iconic watch collection and features a new face made of cuprite, which is a precious stone first discovered in the mid-19th century.

The Sonora Sunrise cuprite comes from Mexico and it took fine skill and craftsmanship to work with this singular mineral as Jaquet Droz described that the material had a “tendency to crumble”. However delicate the fragments may be, they were carefully selected by the Maison for their bright hue to bring back the magic of powerful shimmer to the dial, juxtaposed with the mother-of-pearl hour and minute counter.

Incorporated within the bespoke design of a 35mm, 18-carat red gold case set with 232 diamonds, with a total of 1.23 carats, the dainty looking Petite Heure Minute Cuprite also highlights the white mother-of-pearl subdial and 18-karat red gold applied ring. Powered by a self-winding mechanical movement with power reserve of 68 hours, the timepiece is fitted with a red satin strap to the 18-carat red gold ardillon buckle.

Embracing the look of this one-of-a-kind masterpiece, the gleam echoes perfectly the dainty gem-set bezel and accentuates the fiery red colour of passion, love and emotion, which will make a unique gift for a very special lady on Valentine’s Day. Available in a limited edition of 28 pieces.
