It was Pierre Jaquet-Droz’s passion for watchmaking, inherited by his relatives that brought this exclusive brand to life. From 1738 to 1747, he devoted himself entirely to clock making and produced a series of longcase (or "grandfather") clocks whose increasingly sophisticated movements that were unlike any other clocks ever made in that era. His passion to construct handmade movements, meticulous nature and serious approach to his craft, as well as the reasoned application of mechanical principles, led him to add music and automata to his movements, which came rapidly to the attention of wealthy connoisseurs across the world. Leaving his long lasting legacy behind, Jaquet Droz till date works under the same inherited values and principles that have been passed on for generations, creating watches for a wealthy and demanding clientele.
A Jaquet Droz time piece is a work of art. When you look at their inspiring collection, every model looks like a beautiful painting frozen in time. The perfect example being ‘The Bird Repeater’, a pearl engraved watch painted by hand. The timekeeper depicts two beautiful birds on a nest. The carved birds are exquisite. All their pieces invoke an artistic spirit, you almost imagine yourself standing in front of a painting and interpreting the painter’s imagination. Apart from a great aesthetic sense, the time keepers still maintain a sense of timelessness and elegance, a delicate balance very difficult to achieve.
