Jaquet Droz’ Enchanted Journey Exhibit kicks off at The Shops at Crystals

Jaquet Droz

AQUET DROZ’ ENCHANTED JOURNEY EXHIBIT KICKS OFF IN LAS VEGAS


As part of a world tour to celebrate 275 years of history, Jaquet Droz brings the Enchanted Journey Exhibit this fall to The Shops at Crystals in Las Vegas. After tremendous success in Moscow, Basel, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Macau, the Jaquet Droz masterpieces arrived in the US allowing this sophisticated audience to appreciate all the facets of Swiss watchmaking and understand how the brand manages to preserve its heritage.

This journey through time sheds light on the relationship between Classic 18th century and contemporary works. Timeless icons, unique automatas and exclusive models from its artistic workshop, reveal the beauty of hand engraved and miniature painted legendary timepieces. The most innovative timekeeping mechanisms sit side-by-side with the simple elegance of enamel or the luster of precious stones and pearls, and magnificent minerals used in custom-made dials.

The exhibition, officially opened last Tuesday, September 30, is being held in front of the Tourbillon Boutique. On the opening day visitors had the chance to see a Jaquet Droz master painter in action, doing demonstrations of the skillful artistry of hand engraving and miniature painting on watch dials.

These most outstanding Jaquet Droz creations can be admired until November 12th, 2014, after which they will travel to the Middle East and Europe.

 

About Jaquet Droz Since it was first established in 1738, Jaquet Droz has perpetuated the spirit of innovation and aesthetic refinement of its founder, Pierre Jaquet-Droz. This ingenious inventor and man of uncommon vision conquered the royal courts of Europe and China with his stunning creations: fabulous humanoids automata and precious musical watches. Since Jaquet Droz joined the Swatch Group in 2000, it has continued its never-ending quest to perpetuate the history and expertise of its founder. The manufacture’s spirit is intact after nearly three centuries, as attested by its unique products characterized by exceptional craftsmanship. Jaquet Droz remains true to its time-honored goal, namely, to push back the limits of the watchmaker’s art for your greater pleasure.
