The Jaquet Droz SW Chrono: A Rubberized, Sporty Departure From The JD Norm

by on Feb.24, 2011, under Review

This is definitely something new from Jaquet Droz.  Most of the items you’ll find from the brand named after a man who was best known for automotons are, well, something different.  The last time we featured a Jaquet Droz, it was a $341,000 rube goldberg with the sole purpose of writing the time in pencil.

Most of JD’s current production models tend to look like” href=”” target=”_blank”>this, which if you’re into regulaters and figure 8′s, is a pretty snazzy looking design.  That’s why the SW Chrono (pictured above) is such a surprise.  It is a fairly simple looking chronograph, featuring a JD in-house caliber movement, and incredible legibility.  Accents are rubberized and the case is stainless steel.  No word on pricing yet, but the Jaquet Droz SW Chronograph is in stores now.
