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.
