It has become a tradition for Jaquet Droz to invite its loyal friends and watch lovers to celebrate Chinese New Year over a traditional lo-hei salad. This time the brand organized the event in partnership with The Peak magazine.
The main highlight of this gathering was the new Petite Heure Minute Dog Collection, specially created in honor of the Chinese New Year of the Dog. The dog symbolizes passion, tradition and honesty. Beyond its friendly, lively character lies a playful dreamer.
In fact, when the Jade Emperor came up with his idea for a race to the Heavenly Gate, the dog was so busy having fun with the butterflies, that he only made eleventh place in the Zodiac.
The delicious traditional Chinese meal was prepared by Chef Chung Yiu Ming from the Li Bai restaurant in Sheraton Towers. During the Chinese-themed evening event, guests enjoyed a presentation from the Silhouette Master and tried their hand at 3D “Good Fortune” paper cutting to welcome in a happy and prosperous New Year.
“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.
