Haute Time takes a Trip to the Jaquet Droz Atelier in La Chaux-de-Fonds

Pierre Jaquet-Droz was a Swiss-born 18th-century master watchmaker with exceptional brain and skill to make some of the best watches and automatons. The tradition of Avant-garde designs continues even today in the exclusive watches that are delicately crafted today. Haute Time has gone on a tour of this fashionable studio of Jaquet Droz Atelier in La Chaux-de-Fonds.

While many people might consider time telling as merely a technology of having minute hands and gear to work, it has been more than that at Jaquet Droz, the home of the best luxury watches ever since the 18th century. The Swiss maverick watchmaker Pierre Jaquet-Droz had started a revolution with automatons and in the timepieces. In the year 2000, the company had joined the Swatch Group in a bid to bring to the users various models of designer and unique timepieces. Today, the Jaquet Droz Atelier in La Chaux-de-Fonds has become one of the landmarks where every minute a nouvelle timepiece, a horlogerie, an Atelier d’art gets crafted.

Statement Pieces of Art to Tell Time:

The Grande Seconde is one of the most exclusive watches ever made with precision in detail, and precious and semi-precious metals used to make some of the statement designs that was first thought of during the time of Pierre Jaquet-Droz.

As a customized watch would take as much as six months to be crafted with minerals like Onyx, and Lapis Lazuli finding a place in the small dial and face of the watch, the wearer will know that he is wearing a piece of art. The chronographs, pocket watches and repeaters get touched by the famous artisan of the country who has skill in the art of making tiniest wheels to set in motion the time of the future. A walk through their company in La Chaux-de-Fonds would reveal the most intricate pieces of luxury wrist-wear being crafted and very detailed paintings being done.

This Grande Seconde is now no longer just a watch, or an Atelier alone, rather it is a work of art, that has the skilled jewelers and stone cutters to know the precise designs that go into the making. Apart from this timepiece, the brand Jaquet Droz is also known for making Automatons, which included The Charming Bird, a piece of work that had also won a prestigious award and is also one of the pieces d’art among the others like the Bird cages and others being designed from the late 1700s.
