The large second hand is hollowed out-One watch series, let the exquisite inner mechanism of the watch shine brightly

 The large seconds model embodies the essence of Jacques Dro watchmaking. The brand has launched different styles of large seconds dials. The new One series is a subversion of the past. For the first time, it uses a hollow design with a synthetic sapphire dial. At the time of the 280th anniversary of Jacques Dro’s founding, the large second hand hollow-out, the One watch series, was an important milestone in the history of the brand.

 As the first hollowed out watch launched by Jacques Dro, it retains the hours, minutes and seconds display design and the white space on the dial. Jacques Dro subtly conceals the movement’s bridge, and the hour, minute and second hands shine brightly with a new transparent aesthetic. This timepiece is designed to unravel the mystery of the exquisite mechanism inside the large second hand watch, while retaining the classic appearance of Jacques Dro’s signature number ‘8’. To this end, Jacques de Roy retains the simple aesthetic characteristics of the dial. The 12 o’clock position is equipped with Roman numerals, with legendary hour and minute display, and the 6 o’clock is set with a large second hand with Arabic numerals. The collection’s original aesthetic inspiration, with clever cutouts and decorative details. In music scores, rests are just as important (or even more important) than other notes. Because of this, this large seconds watch balances the aesthetics of the structure with the reality.

In addition to its powerful functionality, the rich and diverse finishing industry reflects the brand’s high level of leanness. Following the design of the large seconds hand of the classic watch, the upper and lower dials are the same as the number ‘8’: the upper dial is the hour and minute display, and the lower dial is the date display. The exquisite moon stars are shining in the deep night, and the simple shapes and elegant lines are memorable. The moon phase large second hand is both a veritable mechanical masterpiece and an aesthetic beauty. Jacques de Luna’s large moon phase seconds hand is intertwined with the luxurious brilliance of onyx, pure gold and silver-plated opal, which is poetic and magical.
