Jaquet Droz Releases the Dazzling New Bird Automaton Repeater Watch

Jaquet Droz Bird Repeater J031033200

Born in 1721, Pierre Jaquet-Droz, the founder of the Workshop that was soon to bear his name, was above all a child of the Swiss Jura. In these valleys that are still today the cradle of Swiss watchmaking excellence, there is a sense of life in communion with the natural surroundings. The sound of birdsong accompanies the cycle of the seasons. And the songs of these creatures, a source of fascination during the Enlightenment for naturalist and fashionable aesthete alike, must have sounded sweetly to the young prodigy during his summers beside the waterfall of the Saut du Doubs.

Watch Spotlight: Jaquet Droz’s New Grande Seconde Tourbillon

Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde Tourbillon

Jaquet Droz introduces a new tourbillon model, the Grande Seconde Tourbillon. The classy and simple aesthetic of the signature figure 8 design emphasises the tourbillon movement that is nicely displayed in the dial. However there seems to be some irony in the name of this particular timepiece. The name does not reference the number of tourbillons made by Jaquet Droz but a reference to their signature model. The original collection of the Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde also has the unique figure 8 design but the larger dial featured the seconds dial which was why it was named “Grande Seconde.” But in this tourbillon model, Jaquet Droz decided to place the tourbillon in the smaller dial that doubles as the seconds indicator which also makes it not so big any more. Although the seconds dial is no longer grande in size, this Grande Seconde Tourbillon still houses a pretty grande seconds dial movement.
