During the month of May, Elegant Watch & Jewellery in Hong Kong is paying a tribute to the craftsmanship of Jaquet Droz’s Ateliers d’Art creations through an exclusive exhibition.
The most significant timepieces are celebrating the expertise of the brand and its traditional decorative crafts of enameling, engraving, painting and miniature sculpting. Also on display is the Charming Bird, the first singing bird automaton integrated in a wrist watch, that has been crowned with the “Mechanical Exception Watch Prize” Award at the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève in 2015.
“Some watches tell time, some tell a story”
Jaquet Droz unveils two new unique timepieces devoted to opal carrying on the art of mineral dials, a rare artisanal skill it applies to breathe life into Earth's treasures.
This automaton takes flight once again in a limited series whose centerpiece is an exquisite mineral dial made of Chinchilla Red, a wood petrified 150 million years ago.
The well-known magazine awarded the Grande Seconde Dual Time with its prize of the watch of the year in the “GMT” category.
