Swiss luxury watch maker Jaquet Droz unveils Bird Repeater Geneva, a remarkable automaton watch that honours the city of Geneva, where Pierre Jaquet-Droz opened his third workshop in 1784 to produce timepieces featuring grand complications.
For this new edition, Jaquet Droz has brought together the sum of the talents that make up its Ateliers d'Art to stage a further celebration. Pastoral and urban converge to form the background décor of The Bird Repeater Geneva, uniting all the symbols of the Swiss city on a white mother-of-pearl dial. Thus have the engravers, painters and enamelers achieved the feat of reproducing, in miniature, Lake Geneva, its famous Jet d'Eau fountain and lighthouse - Le Phare des Pâquis - as well as the silhouette of the Salève, the pre-Alpine peak considered the city's "balcony."
