Jaquet Droz is proud to share that the Swiss watchmaking brand is among the winners of the German Design Awards 2021.
The iconic timepieces Grande Seconde Moon Black Enamel, Grande Seconde Moon Anthracite and Grande Seconde Quantième 41mm Ivory Enamel have just been awarded with the Special Mention in the “Excellent Product Design - Luxury Goods” category.
The German Design Award is considered to be the German Design Council's premium international award. The aim of the award is to discover, showcase and distinguish unique design trends. Every year, awards are given out to top-quality submissions from the world of product and communication design that set trends in the international design landscape.
The German Design Award 2020's jury is made up of design experts from the fields of business, teaching and science, with some members of the jury also hailing from the design industry itself. All jury members are recognized authorities in their fields.
“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.
