Jaquet_Droz_Lady_Flower

This One’s for the Girls!

Every year Baselworld attendees are privy to a wide variety of new and exciting timepieces. There are always great new watches to be displayed in authorized boutiques across the country, but there are also novelty pieces- watches with extremely limited production that are not likely to be featured in your local store.

This year, the King family trekked all the way to Switzerland to be wowed by the latest advances in haute horlogerie and they weren’t disappointed!

It’s always a pleasure to see a ladies watch with a complication- in an industry that’s so dominated by men, it’s a rare but welcomed sight! Jaquet Droz revealed the new Lady 8 Flower novelty (in two variations) at Basel 2015, complete with an automata complication!

This piece is unique to say the least! Featuring large butterfly and flower motifs, the watch is perfect for any feminine watch connoisseur.
