Watch of the Week: The Jaquet Droz Bird Repeater with Diamonds
With this ultra-luxurious model Jaquet Droz emphasizes the art of engraving and pays tribute to special techniques used by its founder in the 18th century. The dial, sides and back of the case of this unique piece have been carefully hand-engraved in 18k red gold by the Jaquet Droz craftsmen in the Atelier d’Art in La Chaux de Fonds. The dial and sub-dial are set with the baguette-cut diamonds. Placed in invisible settings diamonds make up the entire sub-dial behind the hour and minute hands.
