Jaquet Droz opens in Harbour City
Timepiece maker Jaquet Droz has inaugurated a new Hong Kong boutique.
The launch coincided with the release of several new products, including the Magic Lotus Automaton, an “ode to life and its eternal renewal”. The watch was celebrated by a more than four-minute animation, during which a natural fresco unfolds with the grace and calm beauty of a Zen garden.
With a heritage of more than 280 years, Jaquet Droz built its reputation with Chinese royalty during the Qing Dynasty. It was Emperor Qianlong himself who was the first translator of the name of the “Jaquet-Droz” family in Mandarin, still in use today.
