On June 27th Jaquet Droz and its sister brand Glashutte Original, gathered together to reveal their 2018 Novelties to Singapore watch collectors and aficionados.
The guests were welcomed in the brand new Whisky Museum of Saint-Louis House in Ion which opened its doors to the public for the first time.
The main highlights of Jaquet Droz were the new horological masterpiece – Grande Seconde Skelet-One, a yellow gold model commemorating the 280th anniversary of the two-star Brand – Grande Seconde Tribute and an exquisite lady’s piece with the smallest movement – Lady 8 Petite.
A fine whisky tasting from the Museum Collection of Saint Louis followed the presentation. The guests enjoyed the festive and friendly atmosphere of the evening.
“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.
