JAQUET DROZ timepieces

JAQUET DROZ miniature paintingJaquet Droz has treated a select group of VIPs to a night focused on “behind the scenes” technique of artistic watch-making.

Guests were invited to the Tourbillon Boutique in Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, and Costa Mesa to immerse themselves in Jaquet Droz’s history of hand-crafted watches, with an experiential focus on miniature hand painting.

VIP’s browsed the numerous rare, antique pieces on display, such as the great Perpetual Calendar Eclipse, the unique dual time zone watch Grande Heure GMT and several artistic pieces that reflect the trademark excellence of Jaquet Droz.

Another exceptional timepiece brought in specially for these one-off events was an antique Jaquet Droz pocket watch from the 18th century. Behind the cover – an enamel miniature painting featuring a landscape scene – is an automaton with 18-carat gold figures.

Following the presentation, guests were offered a chance to handpaint their own dials using authentic oil paint and fine brushes. The activity was guided by the Jaquet Droz Master Painter who flew in from Switzerland especially for this series of events. At the end of the evening, guests took home their handpainted dials as a memory of a truly exquisite evening.
