Jaquet Droz "The Story of the Unique" Exhibition in Singapore

5 October 2018

In celebration of Jaquet Droz's 280th anniversary, the brand is hosting a touring exhibition of its contemporary timepieces until 14 October at its boutique at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.

On display is the Charming Bird, the first singing bird automaton to be incorporated in a wristwatch, which won the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève in the "Mechanical Exception" category in 2015. This year, the brand released its most complex contemporary piece, the Parrot Repeater Pocket Watch, which continues to pays tribute to all the company’s hallmarks in an elaborately decorated pocket watch, bringing together automata, repeating and chiming (cathedral gongs), musical birds (a favourite of Jaquet-Droz).

Also on view will be different pieces from the brand's Grande Seconde collection - its distinctive dial design was inspired by a pocket watch created by Pierre Jaquet-Droz in 1784 and features two overlapping counters (one for the hours and minutes and the other for the seconds) thus creating a figure 8, the symbol of infinity and eternity and a lucky number for the Chinese.
