It has been the turn of the Thai capital, Bangkok, to welcome the Jaquet Droz Basel Novelties with the presence of the Vice President and Head of International Sales, Mr. Aellen.
On June 28th the brand, its retailer Cortina Watch Thailand and Robb Report Thailand magazine, invited watch collectors and connoisseurs to assist on the event at the St. Regis Hotel.
For this special occasion, the guests had the opportunity to paint handmade candles during a unique workshop curated by the independent artist and sculptor Ekachai Phuaphanpanyophat graduated from the Faculty of Decorative Arts of Silpakorn University (Wang Tha Pra).
During the VIP seated dinner the guests discovered the main novelties of Baselworld 2018, such as Grande Seconde Skelet-One, first skeleton movement of the brand, Lady 8 Petite – an exquisite lady’s piece with the smallest movement, and Grande Seconde Moon, which cycle needs to be adjusted only once in 122 years.
The collectors were especially amazed by the Automata timepieces – Bird Repeater, Loving Butterfly Automaton – as well as by the possibility of customizing the watches and ordering unique pieces.
“Some watches tell time, some tell a story”
Ceramic plasma makes a dramatic entrance alongside red gold. One is steeped in tradition and the other is all about technology. Two new variations of a timepiece that has come to stand for Jaquet Droz’s brazen artistry.
Jaquet Droz unveils two new unique timepieces devoted to opal carrying on the art of mineral dials, a rare artisanal skill it applies to breathe life into Earth's treasures.
This automaton takes flight once again in a limited series whose centerpiece is an exquisite mineral dial made of Chinchilla Red, a wood petrified 150 million years ago.
