Jaquet Droz’s Astonishing Automata (Video)
Jaquet Droz’s history is long, but this gorgeous film is as visually stunning as it is thankfully short – just 16 minutes.
The film begins with a depiction of Pierre Jaquet-Droz’s historical feats, which really took off with the famous automata, and follows with beautiful images of the brand’s modern timepieces, which came about after the Swatch Group resurrected the marque in 2000.
There is well-deserved emphasis on the beautiful hand crafts such as enameling and engraving that Jaquet Droz is so well known for, providing a look into the brand’s workshops in La Chaux-de-Fonds, as well as stunning macro. And lots of automata, both large and small.
And here is a look at the recently introduced Jaquet Droz Tropical Bird Repeater, which you can read more about in Jaquet Droz Goes Paradise Lush With The Extraordinary Tropical Bird Repeater.
