Grande Heure GMT
Understated, classic and important, the Grande Heure GMT is really a tribute to travel.
This abnormal timepiece, ideally suited to long-distance voyagers and modern-day aesthetes, exhibits the hour in two time zones in a look. The 24 Arabic numerals that circle the Grand Feu enamel dial trace each individual minute with the working day in two independent destinations.
In no way just before contains a view demonstrated two time zones with this sort of clarity and simplicity.
This impressive show is enhanced because of the two fingers within a compass-like formation. The pink gold hand reveals nearby time while the blued steel hand offers time from the wearer's nation of preference. By choosing the unconventional process of the solitary crown to regulate both fingers, Jaquet Droz has succeeded in building the Grande Heure GMT simplicity by itself.

He created and designed animated dolls, or so-called automata, to aid his agency provide replica watches and mechanical birds.
Along with his son Henri-Louis and Jean-Frederic Leschot, Pierre Jaquet-Droz made 3 remarkable 'automata'. These three mechanisms fascinated the world's most vital (and rich) persons: the kings and emperors of Europe, China, India and Japan.
