Jaquet Droz Tourbillon Skelet Red Gold - Bon Jovi

25 April 2024

Developed in close collaboration with the rock star, the Jaquet Droz Tourbillon Skelet Red Gold - Bon Jovi timepiece will be on his wrist for the world tour to celebrate his band's 40th anniversary. Featuring a 41-mm red gold case, it brings together the DNA of Bon Jovi and the essence of Jaquet Droz's "Disruptive Legacy". 

It is a timepiece like no other. Its airy design is devoid of a dial. In a taut, edgy, highly contemporary architecture, its movement is secured to the case by a complex geometry of linear bridges treated with black PVD. At 12 o'clock, the tourbillon seems to float in mid-air. It is set against a large, hand-crafted white gold applique: the logo features two wings spread out on either side of a dagger, plunged into a heart engraved with the number "40" to mark the group's special anniversary. 

The two hour and minute hands are set here, literally 'at the heart' of the watch, creating a rich symbolism – between the soul and time, the heart and mind – which was particularly important to the artist. Entirely engraved and polished by hand, this logo is an original design that will be used throughout the band's anniversary tour. 

At the heart of this composition, what appears to be one assembly actually comprises many individual parts. On one side there are the wings and the dagger, then the heart, and finally the '4' and the '0'. By separating the components, Jaquet Droz was able to given them a specific finish. Satin-brushed, polished and grained surfaces intertwine fluidly and naturally, beneath the unfurled wings which are hand-engraved from a solid gold block. The applique that tops it all bears the artist's name.

The simple title "Bon Jovi" was actually particularly tricky to create: The text is in the group's own font and also had to be created by hand to reproduce the height, depth, spacing and angles. 

Jon Bon Jovi personally oversaw the creation of this self-winding timepiece with its 8-day power reserve. His philosophy in life is summed up perfectly in one of his greatest songs: "It’s My Life".
