Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Tourbillon Aventurine Watch Hands-On
So let's get the name part out of the way, since I tend to harp on nomenclature (as you probably already know). While this watch is clearly part of the Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde collection, it is mislabeled, as it does not have a "grand second" hand typical of the rest of the collection, but rather a juxtaposed dial, where the hour and minute hands are where the seconds hand would be. Where the hour and minute hands normally are on Grande Seconde models, the Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Tourbillon Aventurine has an exposed tourbillon - which doubles as a second indicator. I feel like I am repeating myself, since I essentially made the same remarks two years ago.
