Since its inception, the brand known by its twin stars has displayed a special passion for nature and birds, inspiring pocket watches and automata. This passion captured the heart of Emperor Qianlong, heralding the export to China of more than 600 pieces within a decade, and making Jaquet Droz the first clockmaking brand to enter the Forbidden City. China’s imperial palace museum houses a number of pieces by the brand.
The new boutique is located in Macau’s sumptuous Wynn Palace. A sleek, modern interior pays tribute to various emblematic models: a low table echoes the figure 8 profile of the iconic Grande Seconde, bird-cage lamps evoke the Bird Repeater, and the walls tell the story of the brand that dates back over three legendary centuries. It is the story of the visionary genius of Pierre Jaquet-Droz, whose spirit of audacity, aesthetics and excellence continues to this day to write a history that is unique in the world of luxury and fine watchmaking.
“Some watches tell time, some tell a story”
The well-known magazine awarded the Grande Seconde Dual Time with its prize of the watch of the year in the “GMT” category.
Jaquet Droz is proud to announce that the Magic Lotus Automaton won the „Savoir-Faire“ Prize 2019, awarded by the well-known Italian magazine L’Orologio.
The brand is shining the spotlight on its Ateliers d’Art by featuring four variations of its Petite Heure Minute watch that celebrate the sign of the Rat. This animal thus marks the start of a new cycle in the Chinese calendar.
