Ahead of the Baselworld watch and jewelry show, which runs March 23 to 30, in Basel, Switzerland, the Swiss watchmaker Jaquet Droz has unveiled its "Grande Seconde Tourbillon Nacre," an exceptional timepiece combining creativity and watchmaking expertise.

Jaquet Droz has equipped its iconic Grande Seconde with a tourbillon complication for the first time. As well as this most prestigious of complications, the watch features pallet horns and a silicon balance spring, promising high-resistance and optimal precision. 

Taking femininity to new heights, Jaquet Droz has finished the dial in mother-of-pearl, with subtle reflections contrasting with the 39mm red gold case set with brilliant-cut diamonds. These contemporary and luxury details are matched with more classic, traditional features, like Roman numeral hours and minutes indices.

The watch has a seven-day power reserve and a gold oscillating weight, also adorned with white mother-of-pearl.

The Jaquet Droz "Grande Seconde Tourbillon Nacre" has a white satin strap and is a limited-edition release of 88 pieces.
