Father’s love is subtle and silent, but behind it there is deep-seated true love, which can only be experienced with heart. As Wenhao Dickens said: ‘Father should be a generous friend.’ When we look back on our growth years, our father is one of the most respectable and trustworthy friends. He uses his heavy and selfless love in the journey of life. We cover the wind and rain, guide the direction, and guard us all the time. On the occasion of Father’s Day, Jaquet Droz selected two Grande Seconde watches to present Father’s Day in return for his father’s love.
The Grande Seconde series, as a classic of the brand, embodies its philosophical value, aesthetic characteristics and technological pursuits. It still leads the way after more than two hundred years, showing the long-lasting vitality of Jacques Dro design philosophy. The unique 8-character inner ring hugs and hugs, like the real and endless love between father and son, embracing and relying on each other, is the permanent spiritual pillar of the other party. The number 8 also contains the meaning of ‘∞’, just like the great continuation of the life that fathers give to their children, creating the eternity of affection.

In 1785, Jacques Droer pioneered the concept of the Grande Seconde, interpreting time in a whole new way. The eye-catching second hand movement makes the wearer better understand the passage of time, which has become the golden rule of the watchmaking industry for centuries. Since then, the accuracy of the minute is no longer unique to scholars, merchants, missionaries, and kings. Anyone who loves beautiful objects can share this relentless pursuit of precision and elegance.
The beauty of the Grande Seconde is not overshadowed by the passage of time.
