The new 39mm Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Off-Centered

Postby Racer-X » June 18th 2017, 12:18pm

by Xavier Markl "A classic with a twist… Much to our satisfaction, we have been seeing smaller watches re-emerge over the past few years. Case in point, the Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde off-centered is now available with a 39mm case, in place of the usual 43mm versions, maybe too large to be called dress watches. Things change. We go hands on with this chic timepiece."

The sudden influx of sub-39mm watches from top brands is the most heartening watch news thus far this year.

Amen to that.

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
