After Beijing and Hong-Kong, Jaquet Droz new automaton, the Tropical Bird Repeater, has been presented for the first time in Singapore on November 13. The CEO of the brand, Mr. Christian Lattmann, has flown down all the way from Switzerland to present this new timepiece to the sophisticated and demanding guests. The reception took place in a splendid colonial style villa located in the Labrador Park Natural Reservoir.
Over 50 watch enthusiasts came to see the new chef-d’oeuvre of fine watchmaking equipped with seven automaton animations and a grand horological complication, the minute repeater. The guests could appreciate elaborated and abounding floral decorations of the premises paying tribute to Nature and were invited to take part to a photoshoot surrounded by colorful parrots and other birds. A Jazz band helped creating the relaxing and festive atmosphere of the night.
“Some watches tell time, some tell a story”
The Maison unveils the new radically innovative aesthetic of its masterpiece, whose tourbillon is revealed through meticulous geometry.
For the ninth consecutive time, Jaquet Droz is proud to donate a unique piece of its own creation, designed exclusively for Only Watch, a charity sale to benefit the Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies (Monegasque Association against Muscular Dystrophy), and featuring a degree of technical ambition and aesthetic never-before achieved: A Grande Seconde Skelet-One Tourbillon adorned with a plique-à-jour enamel dial.
Issued in eight pieces to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the founder Pierre Jaquet-Droz, the Bird Repeater, an automaton with a minute repeater, embodies the essence of the House. Its dial in white mother-of-pearl and black onyx features appliqués in 18K red gold. Multiple bird animations, eggs hatching and the river in the background breathe life into this creation. This weave of intricate animations, completely engraved and painted by hand, resonates with a minute repeater, which is housed at the heart of its 18K red gold case in 47mm, one of fine watchmaking's most virtuoso complications.
