On Thursday, November 22nd, Jaquet Droz, in collaboration with private bank Lombard Odier, celebrated its 280th birthday in the heart of Geneva, a city cherished by the brand.
This private event was held in the winter garden on the terrace of the President Wilson Hotel. Situated on the Leman lake shore and just steps from the most beautiful parks and boutiques of the renowned Rue du Rhône, Hotel President Wilson is one of the most contemporary addresses in Geneva, facing the magnificent panorama of the Mont-Blanc.
In the presence of Mr. Christian Lattmann, CEO of Jaquet Droz, this exquisite evening of elegance gave prominence to the prestige of watchmaking. Indeed, the brand has offered its guests an exclusive way to discover its world through the experience of a unique workshop allowing all the guests to try the art of miniature painting, alongside one of the master painters.
Guests were also captivated by the brand's recent creations, such as the Grande Seconde Skelet-One, the Grande Seconde Moon and the Lady 8 Petite. The Loving Butterfly Automaton and Lady 8 Flower also amazed guests with their animated dials.
