During Baselworld 2015, luxury watch brand Jaquet Droz introduced the stunning Petite Heure Minute Relief Carps watch. This beautiful fine watch pays homage to the koi carp, which is a symbol of both love and long life.
The watch case is made from 18-carat white gold and set with 272 gorgeous diamonds (totaling 1.05 carats). The case is 13.77 mm in height and 41 mm in width. The luxury watch comes a limited serial number that’s been engraved on the case-back. This Limited Edition timepiece consists of only 28 pieces of each model.
Jaquet Droz took one of its popular pieces, known for its off-centered hours-and-minutes dial, and utilized Asian iconography to create a magnificent looking watch. The watch dial is positioned over a peaceful, blue pond. The effect was accomplished by layering translucent blue enamel. In Asia, carp are often seen in ornamental ponds.
The watch dial of the Petite Heure Minute Relief Carps watch displays two lily pads floating on the water’s surface. The display also includes blooming lotus and hand-engraved gold reed stems that rise out of the pond’s water. Offered for the first time, Jaquet Droz features an enameled balance weight that’s been beautifully decorated with a carp hand-engraved in bas-relief.
The Petite Heure Minute Relief Carps watch is available in two different styles. First is the white gold case model with a bezel and horns that have been set with stunning cut diamonds and the white mother-of-pearl hours-and-minutes sub-dial that is encircled in white gold. Second is the red gold case model that comes with a black onyx hours-and-minutes sub-dial and red gold outlining ring.
Both watch options from Jaquet Droz come with either a rolled-edge hand-made gray or stylish, black alligator leather strap.
Each Petite Heure Minute Relief Carps watch include the highly accurate Jaquet Droz 2653, self-winding mechanical movement that features a double barrel. The watch has 68 hours of power reserve. In addition, this amazing Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Relief Carps watch is water resistant to 30 meters.
