After an informative live Q&A with Marc Aellen, Vice President and Head of International Sales at Jaquet Droz, the guests were astonished by a miniature painting workshop. One of the brand’s enamel painting artists traveled from Switzerland to Abu Dhabi to demonstrate the beauty of the Jaquet Droz dials as well as to showcase the richness of the brand collection. Following the artisan advise, the delighted guests got a chance to become a Jaquet Droz artist for the occasion painting their own dial which their took home with them afterward.
