Jaquet Droz celebrates Valentine’s Day with a new limited edition Petite Heure Minute, a rare, special beauty in a palette of unique hues.
An ode to sensuality, this watchmaking creation embellishes the iconic collection with a new face of cuprite, a precious stone first discovered in the mid-19th century. This singular mineral is challenging to work with due to its tendency to crumble, but the result brings a unique shimmer to the dial, splendidly showcasing the mother-of-pearl hour and minute counter. The gleam of the 18-carat red gold case echoes the dainty gem-set bezel and accentuates the fiery red color of passion, love and emotion.

This Sonora Sunrise cuprite comes from Mexico. The fragments were carefully selected by Jaquet Droz for their bright hue. Copper oxides in the stone conjure up the magical dreamscape of a red planet sizzling with blood-red heat within a fantastical solar system.
The watch has a diameter of 35 mm and is complemented by a red satin strap with an 18-carat red gold ardillon buckle. Available in a Numerus Clausus limited edition of 28 pieces, this model is a rare treasure that blazes with femininity – a one-of-a-kind gift for a very special lady.
