As a part of the world tour, on June 8th Jaquet Droz presented Basel Novelties in Hanoi together with the local partner Sam&Sassy Knightsbridge.
The main highlights of the collection were the new horological masterpiece – the Grande Seconde Skelet-One and the fresh member of the Automaton family – the Tropical Bird Repeater that was displayed in a special showcase generously decorated with tropical flowers and palm leaves.
The guests of the event had the possibility to go deeper into technical details of the complications with the help of the watch expert from Singapore Alvin Wong - the Editor-in-Chief of Crown Magazine.
Dance performance and fruit cocktails inspired by the Tropical Bird Repeater contributed to the tropical atmosphere of the evening.
“Some watches tell time, some tell a story”
The Grande Seconde by Jaquet Droz gets reinvented with new colors in an interpretation at once modern and alive. Marrying contemporary materials with reinterpreted age-old finishes, this watchmaking classic bursts into the 21st century.
In every family there is a common raison d'être that spurs the clan to thrive and grow. So it was in the time of Pierre Jaquet-Droz. Trained in clockmaking by older relatives, he worked with his father-in-law and later his son Henri-Louis. Together they pooled their creative genius and avant-garde vision of clockmaking.
It is in a tropical atmosphere that Jaquet Droz has presented its new 2018 collection in the heart of Paris.
