Jaquet Droz is one of the oldest and most prestigious watchmaking brands in the world. Established in 1738, by Pierre Jaquet-Droz, one of the greatest craftsmen of the 18th century, Jaquet Droz has been developing unique, exceptionally crafted collections that stay true to its founder’s legacy for more than three centuries.
For nearly three centuries, Jaquet Droz has placed time under the banner of astonishment, excellence and constantly renewed creativity. Jaquet Droz has also added a sense of exclusivity to this unique philosophy. In the 18th century, the Jaquet-Droz family were pioneers in the art of luxury decoration. Enameled cases embellished with paillons, painting on enamel and sculpted and engraved ornamentation contributed enormously to their success and their fame. Pocket watches, urns, snuffboxes and cages for mechanical singing birds – all these masterpieces were decorated. And to this day, the brand known by its twin stars offers discerning clients the opportunity to customize the dial of their timepiece to suit their taste and pay tribute to the tradition upheld by the Jaquet Droz Ateliers d’Art.
The Grande Seconde, the leading collection of Jaquet Droz, is inspired by the Pocket Watch created by Pierre Jaquet-Droz in 1784. It spreads its aegis over the Jaquet Droz brand. It is universally recognized for the avant-garde lines of its design.
