Jaquet Droz unveils its 2019 novelties and enriches its collection of timepieces combining watchmaking expertise, artistic sense and creativity.
Cultivating the spirit of the art of astonishment, the Ateliers of Haute Horlogerie from La Chaux-de-Fonds give pride of place to Grande Seconde collections, Automata or Ateliers d'Art through creations that will delight connoisseurs and fine watchmaking enthusiasts.
The new Magic Lotus Automaton invites meditation and contemplation in an animated Zen garden. Fauna and flora come to life in breathtaking detail in this luxurious showcase of artisanal techniques.
It was one of the few complications yet to grace the Grande Seconde. Now the monopusher chronograph makes its grand entrance into the Jaquet Droz collection, equipped with an exclusive movement. An inaugural, limited series piece is complemented by three permanent additions to the collection.
Ever the explorer, the Grande Seconde Dual Time presents a stylish and contemporary new look that ushers the centuries-strong aesthetic of the Grande Seconde toward new horizons.
Sheathed in black ceramic, boasting a dial with blued steel screws and white gold indexes, and worn on a blue canvas strap, the Grande Seconde Skelet-One Ceramic by Jaquet Droz solidifies its modern, masculine identity.
Jaquet Droz puts malachite and mother-of-pearl center stage in two variations of its Lady 8 Petite. Half-jewel, half-talisman, these pieces shine new light on this feminine, modern collection.
Once again, the Petite Heure Minute lends the canvas of its off-centered time to the Ateliers d’Art. On its dial comes plique-à-jour enamel work representing two variations of hummingbird, each limited to a mere eight pieces.
“Some watches tell time, some tell a story”
The brand is shining the spotlight on its Ateliers d’Art by featuring four variations of its Petite Heure Minute watch that celebrate the sign of the Rat. This animal thus marks the start of a new cycle in the Chinese calendar.
In November 2019, Jaquet Droz has specially invited guests to participate in tours where they have been able to experience microscopically painted ‘art workshops’ and have personally been able to design their own, unique watch faces under the guidance of a Swiss expert in the microscopic painting of enamel.
Jaquet Droz and Johnson Watch Company invited around 50 VIP guests to a special cocktail in New Delhi, India.
