THE CHARMING BIRD
JAQUET DROZ’s BIRD IN A NEW ENVIRONEMENT !
This new version of the famous «Charming Bird» offers a wonderful dial hand-painted plus an hand-engraved back. The black onyx dial (at 12 o'clock) completes an overall contemporary aesthetic developed by great talents inside JAQUET DROZ's headquarters.
The singing bird is amazing! The pusher button at 2 o’clock activates the automaton and winds the complication manually. Its sound and motion stands out!
With such huge brand history, we can’t wait to see more (or futur) wrist automatons!
2 separate mechanism are on the timepiece :
1. An automatic or self winding mechanical movement, for the local time
2. A mechanical manual winding automaton with its own crown at 2 o'clock
A huge amount of work is required to create the hand-painted mother of pearl dial and the painting details are stunning. The hand-engraved back reaches the same level of perfection so the people behind this creation are simply: True "Artists".
Hats off, JAQUET DROZ !
