The prestigious Swiss watchmaker opened in Baku a new point of sale in the multi-brand watch boutique Glampire Time Pieces.
The opening event invited over 40 watchmaking enthusiasts to discover the boutique and to assist to a private demonstration of miniature painting given by the brand’s master painter. For the occasion, the artist hand-painted the dial of the unique timepiece Petite Heure Minute Maiden Tower, a 12th-Century monument in the old city of Baku, one of the most distinctive national emblems of Azerbaijan.
Glampire boutique offers an immersion into the universe of Jaquet Droz and invites client to discover the iconic collections as the Grande Seconde, the Ateliers d’Art or the Automata.
The elegant interior turns an ordinary visit to a watch shop in an exciting and exquisite adventure. Here true connoisseurs of watchmaking can find the most exclusive and unique creations of the best Swiss watchmakers.
“Some watches tell time. Some tell a story”
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.
