JAQUET DROZ – Petite Heure Minute Relief Singe
According to the Chinese horoscope, we’ll move into the year of the fire monkey on February 8th. The monkey, a symbol of intelligence and mischief, is celebrated by Jaquet Droz in the limited edition Petite Heure Minute Relief Singe featuring Sun Wukong, a character from classic Chinese literature nicknamed the “Monkey King”. Perched on a rose gold peach tree branch, the ape crouches against a backdrop of leaves and white mother-of-pearl that have been finely chiselled on a black lacquer dial. A gold bevelled onyx disc shines like the sun above the 3D engraving with two spear-shape hands to track the hours and minutes. The time functions and 68-hour power reserve are brought to life by the self-winding JD2653Si calibre. The sapphire back of the 41mm rose gold case reveals a monkey hanging off the gold and onyx rotor. Price: 70,200 CHF. Sharmila Bertin
