THE LEGEND OF TIME, SINCE 1738
Since it was first established in 1738, Jaquet Droz has perpetuated the spirit of innovation and aesthetic refinement of its founder, Pierre Jaquet-Droz. The first watchmaker to set up a workshop in Geneva, along with his son, Henri-Louis, this ingenious inventor and man of uncommon vision conquered the royal courts of Europe and China with his stunning creations: fabulous humanoid automata and precious musical watches. Expressing the values of the Age of Enlightenment, this elegant and well-traveled philosophy still forms the core of our identity. Jaquet Droz timepieces have always combined design, materials and expertise with the most unexpected mechanical refinements.
Complications of surpassing sophistication are juxtaposed with the purity of enamel or the luster of pearls and precious stones, while made to-order dials showcase magnificent minerals and finely worked decorations. The manufacture’s exclusive spirit remains intact after nearly three centuries, as attested by its ultra-select collections and its Numerus Clausus limited editions. At Jaquet Droz, we remain true to our time-honored goal, namely, to push back the limits of the art of wonder.
