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”
This latest variation incorporates rock fragments from the sheer slopes of the Matterhorn.
The falcon, national symbol of the United Arab Emirates, was honored in an exclusive new version of the Bird Repeater that draws on 280 years of the Jaquet Droz Art of Astonishment.
Until April 10, 2019, The Hong Kong Jockey Club Series: Treasures of Time exhibition is running at the Hong Kong Science Museum.
