Valentine's day: Jaquet Droz sets the Lady 8 Petite ablaze with a ruby heart
January 03, 2019
A refined piece of timeless elegance, this limited edition Lady 8 Petite is an ode to romance in red: the color of passion.
Dainty, discreet and delicately feminine, the Lady 8 Petite by Jaquet Droz is an ideal showcase for the unique geometric crystal structure of the mineral.
Issued in a limited series (Numerus Clausus of 28 pieces), the signature figure 8 dial reveals a ruby heart topped with a ruby ball bearing that swivels freely, slipping through the fingers like passing time. A bezel set with 68 diamonds coils around this gleaming fairytale of a timepiece and is complemented by a buckle set with 23 diamonds.
This 25 mm piece is powered by a Jaquet Droz self-winding movement. The red gold oscillating mass is engraved with a wave pattern that echoes the romance of its beating heart.
