It is not only the guardian of historical skills, but also the laboratory of aesthetic innovation. Thanks to the ingenious craftsman who works diligently, the legendary history is closely linked with the wonderful reality. These are the unique features of the Jacques Dro Art Workshop, showing the most essential artisan charm of the brand. In 2017, the brand launched the PETITE HEURE MINUTE lotus pond watch with Chinese characteristics at the Basel Watch & Jewellery Show. Let’s take a look at it:
Born in the age of Enlightenment, Pierre Jaquet-Droz is an extraordinary traveler. Injecting the avant-garde spirit and curiosity of Pierre Jaquet-Droz into the design of the watch, it always reveals the essence of Jaquet Droz’s heritage of nearly three hundred years: modern spirit and extraordinary creativity.
The 39 mm diameter gold case is smooth and natural. Gives us luxurious and full sensory enjoyment.
Koi roam freely between reeds and lotus flowers. Koi with multi-colored fish scales symbolizes longevity, dancing in a pool of ballet in the water, exuding elegance and serenity, and has always been favored in Asia. The koi on this watch also represents the era of Pierre Jaquet-Droz, the Western obsession with Far East culture in the eighteenth century. It is no accident that these watches and clocks were the first exhibits to enter the Forbidden City.
The lotus pond koi pattern is accurately portrayed like a photo, lifelike, and seems to be moving. This realistic painting is limited to 28 pieces and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from the art workshop signed by the master craftsman who is responsible for making the watch. This Petite Heure Minute model is equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement and has a 68-hour power reserve, reminding the world of ingenuity and uniqueness in order to show the magnificent natural wonders.
Baselworld 2017 will present us a beautiful and unique visual feast, and we look forward to the report group in front of the Watch House to bring us more exciting content. For more details, please click the watch house Basel live event:
