Jacques Dro’s Indissoluble Bond With Ore

Near the earth where we were born, as far away as the vast universe, all kinds of ore materials inspired Jacques Dro’s infinite inspiration. Jacques Dro captures the splendid natural luster of the ore, and uses a hand-made process to make it into a unique dial. The designers of Jacques Droe changed the rough and original state of these materials, and gave them a new texture based on the natural unique colors and brilliance of the ore, making them transcend material and presenting an immortal beauty.

  Jacques Dro’s gemologists are constantly looking for rare gems: apatite, bronze pyroxene, emerald, lapis lazuli, meteorite, mother-of-pearl, black agate, ruby, spectrum stone, etc., each kind of ore has Unique mysterious qualities. Skilled watchmakers have blended their art and superb skills into these precious mineral materials so that after the material is cut, they can still maintain the natural beauty of the stone, while also meeting the different preferences and personality of customers. A gemstone can only make one dial, and sometimes not even one. Therefore, the crystals must be hard and scratch-resistant so that they can withstand frequent processing without being damaged.

 Bronze pyroxene

Bronze pyroxene contains many minerals. These minerals show slight differences. After polishing, the stone shows a shimmering earth tone. This hue makes it full of earth’s vitality while also looking deep and mysterious. The temperament of bronze pyroxene is warm and delicate. On Jacques Dro’s GrandeSecondeBronzite, this ordinary stone finally shines with brilliance through the delicate processing of humans.

Emperor stone
The emperor stone has rich and delicate colors like oil paint. The tender yellow, pink, green, orange and even blue are beautiful and beautiful. This type of emperor stone, found deep in a canyon in central Mexico, is the finest of jade. Jacques Dro’s GrandeSecondeImperialJasper ore veins flow over the entire dial, interwoven into a unique and beautiful pattern.

lapis lazuli

Lapis lazuli was regarded as the most precious gem in ancient Western societies. In ancient Egypt, Inca and Sumerian civilizations, they were deeply attracted by this intensely colored gem. Lapis lazuli is composed of a large number of small cyan particles, supplemented by white and gold traces. These evenly distributed colors make lapis lazuli alive. It was also used to make the most precious paint of the Renaissance: ultramarine. This unique color gives Jacques Dro’s Grande DateLapis Lazuli a moving color and soul.

Meteorite
For the creative Jacques de Lo, their precious materials are hidden even in the depths of the universe. When an asteroid fragment fell through the Earth’s atmosphere and fell down, it became a shooting star. More than 4 billion years ago, when the solar system was born, a meteorite fell on the earth. It has a peak-top pattern in the center, and various geometric and irregular structures overlap each other. Like geocentric matter, it is also composed of iron and nickel. Its appearance makes us wonder about the mysteries of the universe and the origin of the world. Jacques de Rote’s GrandeSecondeMeteorite crosses endless boundaries of time and space. It is a veritable ‘outside guest’ on his wrist.

Mother-of-pearl
  Strictly speaking, mother-of-pearl is not a mineral. It is obtained from organisms, but it has a physical texture very close to that of minerals. Mother-of-pearl usually only uses the inner surface of some precious shells. Like the fruit, it gives the pearl luster and iridescence over a long period of time, showing a delicate and moist texture like skin, with unique oriental tenderness. Jacques Dro’s The Mother-of-Pearl Moon Phase watch (The Éclipse Mother-of-Pearl) radiates the ultimate purity and whiteness, while also looming pink, blue and green shimmer. The frilled mother-of-pearl is vibrant and can make the light dance.

Black agate

Black is the strongest of all colors, and it is also the most elegant. The black color of black agate is the most representative of all black gems and the most special one among agates. The smooth and even surface of black agate can completely reflect the light without consuming it, thus reflecting the mysterious light. Therefore, it has been made into many exquisite jewelry, which frequently appears in various elegant occasions. With the evening dress, it can set off the deep temptation of the evening dress. Jacques de Rouge’s onyx hour dial watch (GrandeHeureMinuteOnyx) has a unique charm.

ruby

In Sanskrit, ruby ​​is called ‘ratnaraj’, which means ‘king of the stones’. Ruby belongs to the corundum family of minerals and has a trigonal crystal system. Its composition contains chromium. The higher the content of chromium, the brighter the red, thus showing an infinite color from red to pink. Ruby has a hard texture, just below diamond. Jacques Dro’s PetiteHeureMinuteRubyHeart watch is captivating with its intense colors and unparalleled enthusiasm.

Spectrum Stone
  The spectrum stone is named because it can flash a rainbow-like colorful luster, also known as labradorite. After exquisite polishing, the original somber stone shows a ever-changing fire color. From pine green blue, emerald green to marble brown to amber … On Jacques Dro’s GrandeSeconde Spectrolite, the colorful light dances freely, bringing us a wonderful flow that will never repeat. Performance. (Originally: David Chokron, compiled by Watch House Xiao Sen)
