Jaquet Droz Watches

Jaquet Droz Watches

Jaquet Droz is an interesting watch brand. They stick to classical conventions in the watchmaking world and haven't embraced any modern (as in, this decade) trends towards larger watches and the like. Yet their designs were never purely classical, with charcoal dials, off-center sub-dials and striking silver accents. Pictured above are two of my favorites: The Grande Heure Minute Cerclée from the Hommage Londres 1774 line, and the Les Lunes Cerclée from the La-Chaux-de-Fonds 1738 collection. All in all, they make some beautiful watches in a classic yet a little off the beaten path style. Would make a great gift for a guy; even if he hates it he can sell it for around 10k or so :)
