Clous de Paris is a guilloché pattern of hollowed lines that intersect to form tiny pyramidal shapes. You mostly see it on dials, and it is a very classic way to enrich a dial. Brands like Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe and Breguet often use these hobnails motifs. Which is also called Paris hobnail. It is on the dial of this Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Ceramic Clous de Paris.
Jaquet Droz uses the figure 8 as their symbol and that is why the 8-shape is the central part. The hours and minutes are off-centered and shown in a small sub-dial while the seconds are in a large off-centered sub-dial. ‘Grande Seconde’, thus.
The black and white version of the Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Ceramic Clous de Paris are each limited to 28 pieces
Around the 8-shape the main dial is decorated with Cloud de Paris, which is a kind of inside-out way of using this form of decoration. It looks great. The rolled-edge fabric strap shows a comparable pattern, the 44-millimeter case from ceramic creates a sort of resting stage in between.
The Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Ceramic Clous de Paris is available in black and white. The white version has an 18k red gold crown, case back screws and ardillon buckle. With the black version, this is all black PVD coated. This PVD coating is also in the oscillating weight of the movement of the black version. And this movement has a ruthenium treatment to give it dark looks.
Both versions are limited to 28 pieces. The black version is also available with a power-reserve indicator: the Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Power Reserve Ceramic Clous de Paris.
