Jacques Dro’s automatic doll series, the new masterpiece of tropical wind information, the bird’s minute repeater watch debuted in Europe on November 30. The exhibition in Geneva attracted media from Switzerland and around the world, and since then the brand has organized a grand evening party for high-end watch customers.
Geneva is the starting point of the brand’s history, and founder Henry-Louis Jacques Droe started his artistic and humanistic career in this city in 1784. In this creative land, he and Jean-Frédéric Leschot founded the first watchmaking workshop in Geneva, and since the beginning of the business has owned his own complex watchmaking room. Soon, they began to flex their muscles in this eclectic city, becoming the target of the new bourgeoisie. At the same time, Jacques Dro became part of the local art circle and technical education community.
Two centuries later, the top brand Jacques Dross launched this tropical wind intelligence timepiece at the Kempinski Hotel in Geneva to watchmakers and enthusiasts across Europe. At the exhibition, Mr. Christian Lattmann, Jacques Dro’s CEO, gave a speech first, followed by three major timepiece series highlighting the brand’s extraordinary watchmaking skills-large seconds, art workshops and automatic dolls. The tropical wind information timepiece, which belongs to the automatic doll series, is the latest masterpiece of the brand.
As the pinnacle of mechanical watches, this minute repeater is limited to eight pieces. It is designed to lead customers on a meaningful journey, surrounded by colorful tropical greenery and waterfalls. In this heavenly background, a tortoise-like hummingbird flaps its wings at an astonishing speed of 40 times per second, setting the world’s fastest record. In addition, people can admire peacocks stretching their beautiful tails, toucans with their mouths widening out of the leaves, three dragonflies waving their crystal wings … a total of seven animal images are carefully handcrafted The sculptures vividly show Jacques Dro’s unparalleled skills. This work has many complicated functions. The minute chronograph can emit a loud oscillating sound through the small hammer installed in the case, and the clock, the quarter clock and the minute chronograph can be provided according to the needs.
One of the art designers of the Bird’s Minute Repeater for Tropical Wind Information also demonstrated to the guests how to create miniature paintings on the glazed dial, and communicated with everyone to explain the mysteries.
