Jaquet Droz is paying tribute to the craftsmanship of its artisans, who excel in the art of miniature painting, paillonnée enameling, and engraved ornamentation. Enlightened by the contrast between the black Grand Feu Enamel and the vivacity of the colorful miniature painting, the new Petite Heure Minute models are a true invitation to an exotic journey. Moreover, the iconic Grande Seconde is now adorned with a new watchmaking complication: the display of “astronomical” moon phases. With its refined style, the Grande Seconde Moon is a perfect mix of understated elegance and mechanical technicity. Last but not least, the masterpiece of watchmaking craftsmanship, the new Loving Butterfly Automaton revealed by Jaquet Droz is truly a piece of art come to life, presenting an allegory of love and nature.

“Some watches tell time, some tell a story”
The Maison unveils the new radically innovative aesthetic of its masterpiece, whose tourbillon is revealed through meticulous geometry.
For the ninth consecutive time, Jaquet Droz is proud to donate a unique piece of its own creation, designed exclusively for Only Watch, a charity sale to benefit the Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies (Monegasque Association against Muscular Dystrophy), and featuring a degree of technical ambition and aesthetic never-before achieved: A Grande Seconde Skelet-One Tourbillon adorned with a plique-à-jour enamel dial.
Issued in eight pieces to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the founder Pierre Jaquet-Droz, the Bird Repeater, an automaton with a minute repeater, embodies the essence of the House. Its dial in white mother-of-pearl and black onyx features appliqués in 18K red gold. Multiple bird animations, eggs hatching and the river in the background breathe life into this creation. This weave of intricate animations, completely engraved and painted by hand, resonates with a minute repeater, which is housed at the heart of its 18K red gold case in 47mm, one of fine watchmaking's most virtuoso complications.
