The story of Pierre Jaquet Droz and his sons is one of the most moving in the history of Horology. Born in 1721, Pierre Jaquet Droz, master of time in the Age of Enlightenment - mechanical genius, avant-garde creator of jewelry watchmaking, and composer of poetry and dreams - is one of the most fascinating figures of the period.
Three centuries later, the success of Jaquet Droz is undeniable; the Manufacture, acquired by the Swatch Group in 2000, is resolutely positioned within the prestige and luxury segment of the Swatch Group. Marc A. Hayek, President, with a steering committee, has set himself the mission of cultivating this spirit of excellence and innovation while continuing to communicate emotional and poetical values. The link between the Age of Enlightenment and the third Millennium is therefore still at the heart of the brand's creative inspiration.
