The legendary watchmaster Pierre Jaquet-Droz was born in 1721 on a small farm in La Chaux-de-Fonds. Throughout his career, he devoted his passion to clocks, snuff boxes, pocket watches, and was most well known for his perfection in his captivating mechanisms. Jaquet Droz as a brand today, inherits this exceptional legacy of its founder and continues to excel in handcrafting skills such as enamelling and automata.


The present limited-edition Bird Repeater is a spectacular showcase of the capabilities of Jacquet Droz, and pays tribute to their founder's love towards birds and nature. The background of the Jura region, home to Pierre Jaquet-Droz, displays a stunning and lively scenary, crafted by the most experienced engravers and painters. The mother-of-pearl waterfall comes crashing as the seconds indication, adding a layer of dynamic intricacy to the presentation. The centrepiece of the watch would be the family of blue tits, upon activation, the minute repeater chimes along with the eight different mechanical animation, with the family birds spreading it wings and feeding its fledglings. Fascinating and admirable, the Bird Repeater represents the utmost dedication of Jacquet Droz in their proud automata.
