Until September 22, Lobachevsky Plaza Fashion Gallery hosts the exhibition devoted to the 280th anniversary of Jaquet Droz brand.
Today, Jaquet Droz exhibition travels the world demonstrating its new creations, just like its famous founder Pierre Jaquet Droz (1721-1790) did in the 18th century. This long-term campaign is associated with the 280th anniversary of the house. The “Story of the Unique " mobile exhibition has finally come to Russia, namely, Nizhny Novgorod. This exhibition is focused on the three main pillars of the brand: Ateliers Art, Automata and the Grande Seconde.
The ceremonial opening was held on September 13 and was attended by the brand manager, Renata Akhmetshina. The exhibition in Lobachevsky Plaza is open until September 22 and features the majority of new collections of the Watchmaking House from La Chaux-de-Fonds, some of them being shown in Nizhny Novgorod for the first time. For example, the unique automaton made of meteorite — the Loving Butterfly Automaton.
“Some watches tell time, some tell a story”
The Maison and the artist best known for his artistic direction of The Lord of the Rings showcase a creation that gives pride of place to a mythical creature, micro-painted in two very limited series.
This year, the Maison celebrates the birth of its watchmaking founder, exactly 300 years ago on July 28, 1721. For this occasion, the Grande Seconde Moon has been reimagined in two exclusive anniversary editions: one explores the traditions of the Maison and the other explores its modern inspirations.
When the Milan Museum of Culture (MUDEC) asked Jaquet Droz to join its show “Robot. The Human Project” the brand brought out Pierre Jaquet-Droz’s 250-year-old automatons.
