On May 25th, Jaquet Droz presented its 2017 novelties to local collectors and watch aficionados during an exclusive event in Singapore. Being one of the trend setter in the region, Singapore was chosen as the first stop of the travelling Collection in Asia. The guests were welcomed by Jaquet Droz representative and Kevin Tan, the founder of Deployant who had the pleasure to introduce the brand in the heart of the city’s luxury area – Grand Hyatt Hotel at Scotts Road.
During the presentation Jaquet Droz lovers had the opportunity to discover the new Grande Seconde Moon, Grande Seconde Quantième Satin Brushed, and limited editions from our Ateliers d’Art, among other novelties. They also get a chance to listen to Jaquet Droz Bird Repeater – a very exciting and elaborated timepiece with a minute repeater and automaton at the same time.
“Some watches tell time, some tell a story”
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.
