In front of you, we will bring the exhibition report in the first time, and send the new watch pictures of major brands as soon as possible. Here are some of Basel’s new products, and Jacques Dro’s new products are in real shot. Friends who like Jacques Dro can see them first.
At the 275th anniversary, Jacques de Lo pays tribute to its brand origin, values, and immortal creative spirit, and interprets the brand’s precious drawing materials for the first time.
A butterfly is pulling a little angel, hurried on the road … Such a scene is enough to make time stand still, is it a dream … or is it real? Does it mean an invitation to travel … or is it a return to innocence? The illustration found in an antique book by Jacques Dro was drawn by Pierre Jaquet-Droz, the founder and genius mechanic of the brand of the Enlightenment. Before today, this pattern has never been It has been copied and is the only and only thing in the world.
As a watchmaker and avid art lover in the 18th century, it is no coincidence to make such a design. That stunning blue butterfly may represent the obsession with biology and naturalism of that era. Putti, the little angel Cupid, has a sculptural form that can be traced back to the common symbol of love in ancient Italian architecture.
It was an era of ‘Grand Tour’ and its roots: just like other great men of its time, Pierre Jacquestro often went to the other side of the Alps to explore the splendid culture of the Apennine Peninsula and appreciate the magnificence of ancient Roman architecture Magnificence, the baroque and Renaissance gems contained in the magnificent finesse.
The Loving Butterfly is not only a journey through time and space, but also expresses the visionary values of the founder of the brand: scientific precision, a spirit of exploration, and a passion for nature, all of which are clear and colorful Grand Feu’s glazed enamel is presented neatly.
The Loving Butterfly is the brand’s first watch with a gold case. It pays tribute to the brand’s 275th anniversary and also aims to revive the precious heritage of the founder’s period. The back of the case is marked with a limited number of 28 unique numbers. You can also appreciate the beautiful operation of the white gold oscillating weight and the hand-crafted lettering on the back of the case. These two iconic details, created by Ateliers d’ Art, are not only a continuation of the legend of Jacques Dro, but also the evolution of every second of time into a dream.
The pictures and information collected by the reporting team in front of the Watch House will be uploaded to the special topics in Basel, so stay tuned.
