As the Chinese calendar turns to the New Year under the sign of the Fire Rooster, Jaquet Droz introduces four, luxury watch models. It’s a result of extraordinary collaboration between the Ateliers d’Art, thus celebrating the historic ties between China and brand known for its twin stars.
The Fire Rooster is the 10th animal or sign of the Chinese zodiac calendar. In celebration, the new luxury watch brand Jaquet Droz pays tribute with a stunning watch collection. The Chinese New Year is obviously a huge event in China each years. In addition, millions of people celebrate it around the year.
Two of the new watch models utilize miniature painting. They are available in beautiful 18K red gold. The dial of the Fire Rooster is made from ivory enamel. In addition, variations are available both with and without diamonds. Both luxury watch models were designed and created by the craftsmen of the Ateliers d’Arts. The watches are based on the iconic Petite Heure Minute watch from Jaquet Droz. Quantities are extremely limited. The diamond version is available in only 28 pieces and without is just 8 pieces.
The rooster is depicted with peonies, also known as “the Queen of Flowers.” Due to its design, the dazzling visual display beautifully represents the renewal of springtime. This version is housed in a 39 mm red gold case. The 35 mm model is set with diamonds.
Furthermore, the other two watch models utilize the miniature sculpture technique. This technique appears on the watch’s dial inlaid with jadeite and mother-of-pearl. A simply stunning look. You can choose between 18K white gold or 18K red gold. Similar to the Fire Rooster miniature painting version, choose from either with or without diamonds. Each model is limited to only 28 pieces.
The miniature masterpiece celebrates the influence of jade. As an iconic, material symbol across Asia, jade represents both health and luck. Seen on the left side of the watch dial, you will notice bamboo shoots. These represent a promise of happiness and overcoming adversity.
Jaquet Droz has taken pride by its desire to travel the world and discover different cultures. By its travels, the company has gained appreciation for the Far East and Chinese civilization. The influence is quite evident in the new Fire Rooster watch models.
