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 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.
