Blue Grand Feu Paillonné Enamel
Jaquet Droz reveals three timepieces to showcase its expertise at paillonné enamelling: a 39mm Petite Heure Minute, a 43mm Grande Seconde and a 50mm pocket watch.

Paillonné is a difficult, labour-intensive grand feu enamelling technique. Antique gold flower and leaf motifs are hand applied between layers of enamel. The technique involves several firings at temperatures that can approach 1000 °C. Only the skilled eye can detect when the blue colour is perfectly consistent and when the motif has set under the translucent enamel fondant.

Each timepiece is fitted with a mechanical movement. The Petite Heure Minute is fitted with the Calibre 2653 double barrel automatic movement with 22-carat white gold oscillating weight; the Grande Seconde is fitted with the Calibre 2663 double barrel automatic movement with 22-carat white gold oscillating weight; and the pocket watch is fitted with the Calibre 2615 hand-winding movement. Each model is limited to 8 pieces each. Prices are $39,900 for the Petite Heure Minute Paillonnée, $42,000 for the Grande Seconde Paillonnée and $47,300 for the Pocket Watch Paillonnée.
