MAGIC LOTUS AUTOMATON BLOOMS FROM THE NATURALIST ROOTS OF JAQUET DROZ.
The new Magic Lotus Automaton invites meditation and contemplation in an animated Zen garden. Fauna and flora come to life in breathtaking detail in this luxurious showcase of artisanal techniques.
An ode to life and perpetual new beginnings, the new Magic Lotus Automaton is an unprecedented animation for Jaquet Droz. A new development that was designed and assembled in house, this automaton features an exceptionally long animation that runs to more than four minutes. In this time a naturalist fresco unfolds with all the grace and serene beauty of a Zen garden.
The eternal cycle of life is a millennia-old concept that is part of the traditions of Asia, Ancient Greece and the all major monotheistic faiths. Rebirth and reincarnation are experienced in the everyday, in the continuous movement through the seasons that is made possible by the movements of the Earth, moon and sun.
“Some watches tell time. Some tell a story.”
JAQUET DROZ UNVEILS THE FIRST EVER GRANDE SECONDE CHRONOGRAPH
It was one of the few complications yet to grace the Grande Seconde. Now the monopusher chronograph makes its grand entrance into the Jaquet Droz collection, equipped with an exclusive movement. An inaugural, limited series piece is complemented by three permanent additions to the collection.
