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”
Over centuries it became a legend, serving imperial whims before returning to its place of birth – almost by accident. The “Singing Bird Clock” by Jaquet Droz is a one-of-a-kind story in the history of watchmaking.
In a new architectural interpretation of its icon, the Grande Seconde Skelet-One lets light into the heart of its mechanics.
Jaquet Droz is writing a new chapter in its special relationship with China. The grand opening of the Xi’an boutique on July 6th thus solidifies a history that the Jaquet-Droz family first began to write 280 years ago.
