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.
