For the occasion, Haute Horlogerie enthusiasts were invited to discover the exhibition "Story of the Unique" unveiling a historical retrospective and the presentation of Jaquet Droz’s new collections with the presence of the CEO, Mr. Christian Lattmann.
The cherry on the pie of the exhibition was the presentation Parrot Repeater Pocket Watch, a quintessence of Jaquet Droz’s know-how in decorative arts.
