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”
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.
