The very poetic new watches from the Lady 8 Flower collection bring beauty to floral art, enhanced by a series of decorative craft techniques. A pure moment of wonder harmoniously orchestrated by Jaquet Droz.
In his lifetime, Pierre Jaquet-Droz (1721-1790) charmed the public with an approach to clockmaking that was both ornamental and mechanical, especially with the presentation of his famous android automata, The Writer, The Draughtsman and The Musician in 1774. The astonishment inspired by these three masterpieces is an emotion that Jaquet Droz, the modern company, continues to foster through such masterly works as the Lady 8 Flower. The poetic collection of women’s automata watches was launched in 2015 and today is being expanded to include two new models, with just 8 of each produced.
These charm-filled timepieces by Jaquet Droz are driven by the calibre JD615, running at a gentle frequency of 21,600 vibrations an hour and providing a power reserve of 38 hours.
