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.
Over centuries it became a legend, serving imperial whims before returning to its place of birth – almost by accident. The “Singing Bird Clock” by Jaquet Droz is a one-of-a-kind story in the history of watchmaking.
In a new architectural interpretation of its icon, the Grande Seconde Skelet-One lets light into the heart of its mechanics.
Jaquet Droz is writing a new chapter in its special relationship with China. The grand opening of the Xi’an boutique on July 6th thus solidifies a history that the Jaquet-Droz family first began to write 280 years ago.
