Elegant 8 (Lady 8) contains the essence of jewellery craftsmanship, sometimes simple and pure, sometimes gorgeously decorated, with exquisite curves to show the softness, elegance and exquisiteness that Jaquet Droz cherishes. The rhyme is a model. The LaChaux-de-Fonds workshop is dedicated to creating exquisite scenes and realizing real craftsmanship. This year, Jaquet Droz has reached its peak, equipped with a breathtaking automatic doll scene for Lady 8-a blooming lotus.
The Elegant 8-Flower watch combines all the techniques of Jaquet Droz. The two rings overlap to form Jaquet Droz’s iconic number 8. The 8 symbolizes harmony, completeness and endlessness. . A butterfly with wings spread is displayed on the ring below, and two styles are available: the first butterfly is decorated with translucent red enamel hand-painted carved butterfly wings with a guilloché surface; the second is embellished with precious stones, the butterfly Inlaid with sapphire and snowflake-encrusted diamonds. The ring above shows a lotus flower covered with a sapphire crystal dome mirror. The lotus symbolizes Ning He Jing Yuan and elegant poetry, and is regarded as a sacred and pure flower in many Asian cultures. The lotus on the dial is meticulously crafted to the best of every detail: each petal is carefully sculpted to give the petals a perfect satin effect on the back, or one by one with enamel.
This event installation displays mysterious and implied flower buds or full blooms, not just pure natural wonders full of poetry. Just press the button and the lotus will bloom slowly, revealing the diamond flower heart. With this timepiece, Jaquet Droz also realized a new technological innovation: the watch mechanism and the Lotus doll device were simultaneously embedded in a 35 mm diameter case of the same size, and the two did not interfere with each other. The case is also exquisitely crafted, regardless of size selection or inlaid embellishment, each watch’s brilliant-cut or baguette-cut diamonds are meticulous.
Elegant 8-Flower (Lady8Flower) watch series launched two models, each limited to 28 pieces. Through these two watches, Jaquet Droz shares with customers the magical secrets, that is, the excellent craftsmanship inherited from generation to generation, advancing with the times, and the charm of blooming flowers.
