The figure eight, Jaquet Droz's lucky number, has been regarded as the ultimate touchstone by the watchmaker from La Chaux-de-Fonds since the Age of Enlightenment. Making its first appearance in Jaquet Droz collection in 2013, the Lady 8 is today a symbolic feminine timepiece and a highly precious jewel.
While the Lady 8's general architecture remains true to its original design - an uncluttered dial crowned with a precious stone - the craftsmen have let themselves go in a veritable extravaganza of different materials.
The Lady 8 Shiny plays on curves for women who appreciate the sensuality of time. The timepiece reveals a true painting dial in gemstones with grey gold and diamonds (1.49 carats) . Proof of the Jewelry workshops’ extraordinary technical mastery, Jaquet Droz has had a coquettish touch: at its summit, a pearl of diamonds (1.4 carats) that its owner finds herself irresistibly drawn to touch and turn it with her finger.
In order to give the Lady 8 Shiny more fluid lines, the lugs have given way to an alligator strap attached to the case which comes in gem-set white gold for a total of 4.92 carats. The new folding clasp, specially created for this model, also takes the shape of a figure of eight, is made of grey gold and diamonds (1.51 carats) reaffirming the striking identity of the Lady 8 on the inside of the wrist.
It's an invitation to speculate, to reveal, and as such defines the spirit of glamor and luxury that imbues the new Lady 8s.
Jaquet Droz opts for sleek minimalistic beauty with the latest Petite Heure Minute.
Jaquet Droz puts malachite and mother-of-pearl center stage in two variations of its Lady 8 Petite. Half-jewel, half-talisman, these pieces shine new light on this feminine, modern collection.
Jaquet Droz ceremoniously launched the new masterpiece, MAGIC LOTUS AUTOMATON, an unprecedented timepiece represents an ode to life and perpetual new beginnings. Mr. Christian Lattmann, CEO of Jaquet Droz, Mr. Jack LIAO, Vice President of Blancpain China and member of Swatch Group China Management Committee, Mr. Marc Aellen, Vice President and Head of Sales of Jaquet Droz, and Mr. David LU, Vice President of Jaquet Droz China, together with the special guests of the brand, witnessed this glorious moment of Jaquet Droz.
