Jaquet Droz  Swiss watchmaker since 1738


"Jaquet Droz is a specialist in using unusual and unique materials for its dials and has over the years most likely used every rare stone available to embellish its limited and unique editions. The opal is a particularly good choice as a dial because of its eye-catching luminosity and shimmering colors." By @quillandpad

The Loving Butterfly Automaton depictes a cherub seated on a chariot being drawn by a butterfly. Thanks to a sophisticated mechanical movement, the scenery comes to life as the wheel of the cherub’s chariot spins and the butterfly’s wings flap as they charge through the enchanted forest.

The art of paillonné enameling consists of meticulously positioning tiny paillons of gold, one by one, to create perfectly geometrical patterns on the colored enamel itself, and then setting the design under a coat of translucent enamel fondant. To achieve an enamel finish of flawlessly even grain and color requires consummate mastery of the extremely high firing temperatures.

Powerful, assertive lines and a resolutely contemporary, immediately recognizable silhouette embody the full spirit of the new SW models unveiled by Jaquet Droz. Imposing yet light, masculine yet refined, these new timepieces exude a subtly re-imagined allure, inspired by the contrasting vertical- and circular-brushed finishes of the dial and bezel, for a unique reflection of light. With their meticulously architectured forms, their creative use of materials – featuring both polished and satin finishes on original bracelets – and their fluted bezels, these 45 mm diameter models play with power and balance.
