The Jaquet Droz Bird Repeater, a Watch of Great Delicacy
Introduced last November by the watchmaker Jaquet Droz, the Bird Repeater watch is an exclusive model. Its complex mechanism represents a technical achievement and its refined decoration, realised with the greatest of expertise, makes this timepiece a one-of-a-kind in its class.
A watch brought to life by an automaton mechanism and a minute repeater
Through the Bird Repeater, the watchmaker shows a great mastery of the manufacturing of the automata associated with the minute repetition technique. The Jaquet watch thus gives life to a family of blue tits, avian symbols of Jura, the native region of the brand’s founder. The minute repeater allows the watch to mark the hours, minutes and quarter hours as the dial’s animation plays. The sound of the cathedral gong also gives the Jaquet watch a unique character.
A gold watch made possible entirely by its team of decorative artisans
Making the Bird Repeater watch called for the cooperation of a broad team of decorative artisans: the engravers and the painters of the Maison Jaquet Droz took part in the item’s artistic creation, in order to give it its subtlety of colour and balance of volume. Cased in grey gold set with diamonds, or in red gold, the watch is available in a very limited edition which will be presented at Baselworld 2013 on the 25th of next April.
