Last week, Jaquet Droz and Beyer Watches & Jewellery, situated on Zurich’s Bahnhofstrasse, hosted a special workshop in honor the brand’s timeless art of enamel painting.
Under the guidance of the Jaquet Droz’s enamel painting artist the guests had a chance to become artists as they discovered for themselves the secrets behind the brand’s Art of Astonishment. During the dinner, the guest discovered the 2019 collection such as the Grande Seconde Dual Time or the Grande Seconde Skelet-One.
“Some watches tell time. Some tell a story”
After three years of work, Jaquet Droz and John Howe have developed an Art Watch dedicated to emotion, wonder and fantasy. Draped in gold and rare stones, their dragon has a record 9 distinct animations. Inside a 43 mm case, the piece is entirely handmade and can be customized almost without limit by the client. Thanks to a Studio in the heart of the Jaquet Droz head quarter, clients will be offered an immersive phygital experience that will allow them to witness the live creation of their timepieces. There is no series to be announced, only unique pieces.
