Jaquet Droz launched two sets of The ButterflyJourney watches, each set of eight, paying tribute to the beauty of nature.
Jaquet Droz’s Ateliersd’Art showcases its unique craftsmanship, introducing two sets of butterfly-themed Petite HeureMinute watches, each with eight watches each, showing the elegance of the butterfly Beautiful posture. The delicate and romantic butterfly symbolizes the beauty of time like songs.
Butterflies flutter and lead angels passing by. In this poetic and tender moment, time seems to be stagnant. This pattern is found in an ancient book of Jaquet Droz. It was painted only once by one of the legendary automatic puppets created by Pierre Jaquet-Droz during the Enlightenment. In 2013, this frame pattern shined on the ‘The LovingButterfly’ watch, which putti the child statue putti decorated on the most beautiful building in Italy, and also to the European Baroque and Renaissance Tribute to the cultural treasures.
This year, Butterfly has become the protagonist of the horological stage again. It is novel and chic and amazing: each of the two sets of Petite HeureMinute is composed of eight watches, just like the different chapters of a volume of horological novels. This is a fleeting novel, with eight scenes depicting butterflies flying and dancing, echoing the brand’s 18th century love of naturalism.
Based on the same theme-the beauty of nature, exquisite and delicate, the brand artisan masters interpret each other’s two stories.
The dial becomes a space for painters and engravers to freely express their creativity. In a 43 mm diameter red gold case, a bunch of phoenix flowers are sprouting under the dial. A hand-carved red gold butterfly rests in the middle of the flower. Complement each other. The white gold model of the same size is inlaid with 264 diamonds, and the cymbals extend to the lugs. The floral chrysalis in the case echoes the tropical poetic scene in red gold. A platinum butterfly lingers among the flowers of love, light pink peony, like an invitation to a trip to Asia. The three-dimensional curve of the butterfly, the wing of the champlevé, the delicate color of the slender butterfly body, the moving colors of the flowers, and the exquisite details make the scene lifelike and beautiful. The ButterflyJourney watch combines the deep craftsmanship of Jaquet Droz and the outstanding skills of its master craftsmen. It is a pioneering work of decorative crafts, showing Jaquet Droz’s subtle moments and flora and fauna. The interpretation of fleeting natural wonders.
