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 expands its presence in Southeast Asia by joining a brand new partner Time Zone in Bangkok.
In a series of events in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, the inaugural Vietnam-exclusive timepiece Petite Heure Minute Ha Long Bay made its debut to media and watch lovers alike.
Jaquet Droz, a longstanding patron of the Arts, is sponsoring Muga & Ghost, two artists from La Chaux-de-Fonds who spent three years painting enormous murals on cultural landmarks around the world.
