The #bird repeater was first introduced by #jaquet droz in 2012. It showed a pair of titmouse, bird dear to the founder #pierre jaquet-droz, who reaffirmed the great know-how of the brand inherited from Age of Enlightenment and miniaturized in what can at reason to call the first automaton wrist-watch
The following year, on the occasion of the celebrations for the 275 years of the House, introduced The #charming bird, which proposed version of the two birds, through an ultra-modern design, equipped with a mechanism able to reproduce the song.
Today, the saga continues with a new version – The Bird Repeater Openwork. More sober and contemporary of the first model in pink gold. This new work retains the animations, that the first time they left everyone speechless, the pair of birds that eats with its beak the little ones, the flapping of the wings, the water jet of a waterfall, the eggs that hatch . An image made all the more poetic, from small cosmetic changes, made by the artisans of #atelier jaquet droz, to make it more modern.
With a sapphire dial, the movement has been laid bare, to give greater visibility to each of the colored animations and elements to allow blacks, charcoal, and gray can be seen in all their glory.
The new depth, made this The Bird Repeater, and the contrasting color accentuate the details of each particular, feathers, eyes, outline of the body, flowing water, and the delicate work, engraving and painting.
The new The Bird Repeater Openwork, is proposed in a white gold case and black alligator strap. And ‘the timepiece which more than any other, is able to express the spirit of Jaquet Droz, where for nearly three centuries, converges tradition of watchmaking innovation. Available in a limited edition of eight copies, each consists of 508 elements.
