The Rue du Rhône is the most exclusive shopping district in Geneva. The elegant street, close by the shores of Lake Geneva below the enchanting historic city centre, hosts sophisticated cafes and exclusive boutiques run by international luxury brands. Since Wednesday November 27, 2013, the Swatch Group brands Glashütte Original and Jaquet Droz are represented here by a single shared boutique. In close proximity to Breguet and Blancpain, the new store is located amid world-famous Haute Horlogerie brands.
The boutique links the two brand worlds in a harmonious manner: on the left in the new boutique Jaquet Droz welcomes its guests with an elegant combination of colours in black, grey and silver, while Glashütte Original on the right presents a successful mix of materials in dark moor oak, beige enamel surfaces and light-coloured leather. Both brands use an elegant and minimalist style to create an atmosphere that is comfortable and welcoming at once. From today, visitors to the 60 square meter former Tourbillon Boutique are invited to explore the exclusive collections of the two prestige brands.

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.
