The guests were invited to a special workshop in order to try the meticulous technique of painting on enamel at Adrift restaurant in Marina Bay Sands. They were supervised by professional painter from the Jaquet Droz Ateliers d’Art in Switzerland who guided them in the discovery of this ancestral practice. The invitees could experience what it feels like to be a Jaquet Droz artist the time of the event.
Watch enthusiasts also had the opportunity to discover some limited editions from the Jaquet Droz Ateliers d'Art Collection such as the Petite Heure Minute Lion, Koï Carp and Flamingo, all enhanced by the contrast between black Grand Feu enamel and vibrant miniature painting. Extraordinarily vivid and captured with almost photographic precision, the animals appear as if they could move at any moment. These lifelike portraits are available as just 28 pieces for each version and come with a certificate of authenticity from the Ateliers d’Art, signed by the artisan whose time was devoted to its creation.
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.
