It is in a tropical atmosphere that Jaquet Droz has presented its new 2018 collection in the heart of Paris. VIP clients and medias made the trip to discover exceptional pieces such as the Signing Machine, a truly unique piece able to reproduce a signature with a masterful stroke of magic and mystery or the Grande Seconde Skelet-One, allowing light to penetrate the depths of the mechanism while preserving the figure “8” shape that is its aesthetic signature. It is in the parisian boutique, located 8 Rue de la Paix, that Mr. Christian Lattmann, CEO of the brand, introduced the guests to the Art of Astonishment that animates each timepiece, and especially the Petite Heure Smalta Clara Tiger, demonstrating exceptional know-how in terms of plique-à-jour enamel.
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.
