For the second consecutive year, Jaquet Droz Singapore Boutique organizes a pop-up exhibition. Held at the Marina Bay Sands, the exhibition emphasizes the brand’s rich history, especially on its milestone of being one of the first Swiss watchmaking brands to be introduced in China.
Comprising of the Novelties 2019, the Grande Seconde Chronograph, Grande Seconde Dual Time, and Grande Seconde Skelet-One form a strong display of the brand’s innovations and dedication to aesthetics. Further taking one’s breath away is the unique piece Tropical Bird Repeater which embodies Jaquet Droz’s cherished Philosophy of the Unique. Making an appearance for the first time in Singapore, naturalist art comes alive with the trigger of the minute repeater animation. Radiating like a life-giving sun is the 180 baguette-cut diamond subdial, overseeing the seven animations that can last over 12 seconds.
In support of the pop-up exhibition, esteemed watch collectors were also hosted to an exclusive showcase of the exhibition timepieces. With bated breath as they watched the animations unfold, guests gained a renewed appreciation for Jaquet Droz as they admired the intricacies of the various timepieces.
The exhibition runs daily from 27th September to 13th October at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, Casino Level B2M-215.
“Some watches tell time. Some tell a story”
It was one of the few complications yet to grace the Grande Seconde. Now the monopusher chronograph makes its grand entrance into the Jaquet Droz collection, equipped with an exclusive movement. An inaugural, limited series piece is complemented by three permanent additions to the collection.
On September 6. Mr. Christian Lattmann, Jaquet Droz CEO, and Mr. Fong Wing Ngai, Macau Timepiece Museum curator, were joined by distinguished guests of the brand as well as media to celebrate the inauguration of the exhibition. The master of watch restoration from Jaquet Droz, Mr. Boillat has presented in exclusivity the Singing Bird Snuffbox, created in the 18th century.
The Grande Seconde Quantième now features a modern, tasteful and spirited satin-brushed sunray finish, and is available in a diameter of 39 mm or 43 mm.
