Jaquet Droz and Prince Club located at Pekin Road, organized a special event to honor the 280th anniversary of the brand. For the occasion, an exhibition was entirely dedicated to the heritage of the brand and its iconic collections: Grande Seconde, Atelier d’art and Automata.
During the event, the VIP guests had the privilege to discover the Tropical Bird Repeater. The unique timepiece showcases on its dial 7 animations and the grand horological complication, the minute repeater. The Tropical Bird Repeater – the only one of its kind in the world – brings together all the watchmaking and decorative expertise of the brand known by its two stars. A piece destined for discerning collectors, the automaton watch is part of a long history at Jaquet Droz, honoring the Enlightenment-era passion for nature and animals of its founder Pierre Jaquet-Droz.
“Some watches tell time, some tell a story”
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.
