Jaquet Droz warmly welcomed guests into its boutique on New York’s Fifth Avenue in celebration of the brand’s 2019 novelties.
The occasion was a special one for both Jaquet Droz and attendees. Guests of this intimate gathering had exclusive access to some of most unique and complex creations from Jaquet Droz, many seen for the very first time in North America.
As collectors and connoisseurs mingled and exchanged their passion for the brand and haute horology, they also had the chance to meet and speak with Christian Lattmann, CEO of Jaquet Droz. Mr. Christian Lattmann was delighted to guide onlookers through the brand’s history, watchmaking expertise, artistic sense and creativity.
The main highlights from Jaquet Droz were the new horological masterpieces – the sophisticated Magic Lotus Automaton, two new complications from the Grande Seconde Collection – the Grande Seconde Dual Time and the Grande Seconde Chronograph, as well as several timepieces from the Lady 8 Petite and Petite Heure Minute Collections.
“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.
