Without knowing it, the annual rings quietly turn over the four seasons. The footsteps of time and the ‘New Year’ with 356 days and nights come as the snow flies across the sky.
Lights and shadows flow through the years, and the years are quiet. Whenever the old one greets the new one, as the most beautiful gift of time, the watch is always the ultimate choice. Choosing a wrist watch is not only a simple consumption, but also a cultural influence and a historical influence. The watch carries the history of passing, and also hopes for the beautiful unknown. This time, Jacques de Rozen chose time as a gift, and presented the classic and elegant large second hand series to his wrist, implying good luck for the coming year, and bringing the most beautiful expectations for the promising New Year.
Jacques Dro large seconds hand series, inherited from the founder of the brand Pierre Jacques Dro, in 1785, created an eccentric hour and minute dial pocket watch with a large second dial. The hour and minute display inner disk of the hour position embraces the inner dial of the second hand set at 6 o’clock, forming the shape of the number 8. The number 8 is not only an endless and eternal symbol, but also one of the brand’s main magical and auspicious numbers.
At the same time, as early as the 18th century, Chinese emperors and eminent nobles had already collected Pierre Jacquestro’s masterpieces. As the first well-known brand in the West to open the door of the Forbidden City, Jacques Droo has always had close trade relations with the Qing Dynasty, and the number ‘8’ is in China, especially in the southern coastal trading port cities. There has always been a good sign fortune-telling, and the “8” on Jacques Dro’s dial just fits this point. To a certain extent, it is related to Chinese culture.
Because of this, Jacques Dro’s 8-character second hand series is undoubtedly the best choice for New Year’s Spring Festival gifts.
