Jaquet Droz New Lady 8 Flower (Ref: J032003220 & Ref.J032004221)

Jaquet Droz updates its Lady 8 Flower series by introducing two new versions. Paying tributes to the fine jewellery art craft, the Lady 8 Flower is the first creation for ladies in the Automata collection by Jaquet Droz.
New Lady 8 Flower versions are embellished with even more jewels, is a mechanical chef-d’œuvre that leaves both mind and soul spellbound, caught up in the whirling lotus flower and the enchanting nirvana portrayed on the dial.
First version comes in red gold and features a "18-karat red gold dial set with 353 diamonds, total of 1.38 carats Its 18-karat red gold case and applied ring are set with 114 blue sapphires and 88 diamonds, buckle is set with 47 diamonds, total of 1.61 carats (sapphires) and 0.64 carat (diamonds). Another highlight of this version is the 18-karat red gold skeleton petals and diamond briolette, total of 0.24 carat. This model is offered in limited edition of 8 pieces.
Second one is a white gold model that features an 18-karat white gold dial set with 353 diamonds, total of 1.38 carats. Its 18-karat white gold case and applied ring are set with 114 blue sapphires and 88 diamonds; buckle is set with 47 diamonds, total of 1.61 carats (sapphires) and 0.64 carat (diamonds). It also features 18-karat white gold skeleton petals and a diamond briolette, total of 0.24 carat. This version is also available in a limited edition of 8 pieces.
The Lady 8 Flower boasts two mechanisms: Automata and watch movement. In this timepiece the automata mechanism offers a stunning display. Under the sapphire crystal dome, the sculpted lotus flower delicately comes to life with the gentle press of a pusher on the watch’s side, the flower blooms and closes in a splendid, serene display, while, at its center, a briolette arises to join the dancing petals on their mother-of-pearl stage. Gentleness and poetry emanate from the curves of the Lady 8 Flower—whose two joined dials form a figure eight, the symbol of infinity and splendor in Asian cultures—and from the oscillating weight, crafted in an elegant fan shape.
For indicating time, it houses a self winding movement with a 38-hour power reserve and miniaturized mechanisms. The two independent mechanical movements dance harmoniously: the hour and minute hands mark the tempo, while, on another stage, the floral automaton springs to life with its curved and polished silhouette whenever the spirit moves the wearer.
On the dial, the blue steel hands advance in a gesture perfectly woven into the rounded contours of their setting. Arrayed with a blue sapphire-adorned rehaut and a deployment clasp set with diamonds, this jewel also reveals its inner workings through the sapphire crystal on the back, for everlasting magic.
