On the 4th of May 2017, Jaquet Droz has been invited by Rivoli and the Magazine Esquire Middle East to co-host its famed watch collector's dinner called Gentlemen’s Evening at the Rosewood Hotel in Abu Dhabi.
This exclusive dinner with the UAE capital's most clued-in watch collectors started with a welcome speech from Esquire's editor in chief Jeremy Lawrence.
After an informative live Q&A with Marc Aellen, Vice President and Head of International Sales at Jaquet Droz, the guests were astonished by a miniature painting workshop. One of the brand’s enamel painting artists traveled from Switzerland to Abu Dhabi to demonstrate the beauty of the Jaquet Droz dials as well as to showcase the richness of the brand collection. Following the artisan advise, the delighted guests got a chance to become a Jaquet Droz artist for the occasion painting their own dial which their took home with them afterward.
The evening saw a healthy contingent from the Arab Watch Guide, watch collectors society and its head Hassan Akhras.
“Some watches tell time, some tell a story”
The Grande Seconde by Jaquet Droz gets reinvented with new colors in an interpretation at once modern and alive. Marrying contemporary materials with reinterpreted age-old finishes, this watchmaking classic bursts into the 21st century.
In every family there is a common raison d'être that spurs the clan to thrive and grow. So it was in the time of Pierre Jaquet-Droz. Trained in clockmaking by older relatives, he worked with his father-in-law and later his son Henri-Louis. Together they pooled their creative genius and avant-garde vision of clockmaking.
It is in a tropical atmosphere that Jaquet Droz has presented its new 2018 collection in the heart of Paris.
