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”
Over centuries it became a legend, serving imperial whims before returning to its place of birth – almost by accident. The “Singing Bird Clock” by Jaquet Droz is a one-of-a-kind story in the history of watchmaking.
In a new architectural interpretation of its icon, the Grande Seconde Skelet-One lets light into the heart of its mechanics.
Jaquet Droz is writing a new chapter in its special relationship with China. The grand opening of the Xi’an boutique on July 6th thus solidifies a history that the Jaquet-Droz family first began to write 280 years ago.
