JAQUET DROZ – Lady 8 Flower
Fluttering with butterflies and blooming with flowers: Jaquet Droz has, as usual, brightened up 2015 with his signature sophisticated poetry. The expertise that the Chaux-de-Fonds watchmaker has been famous for since the 18th century has gone into the wonderfully feminine Lady 8. The piece is bursting with lyricism and symbolism, craftsmanship and automata. The rose gold case is paved with 114 brilliant-cut diamonds and unfolds to form a figure of 8, the brand’s lucky number. Its ladylike 35mm case houses the self-winding JD615 calibre which not only brings to life the time functions but also the flower automaton. A pink-enamelled gold lotus trapped in a sapphire bubble opens and closes its petals when you press the pusher at 2 o’ clock. Time ticks by as two gold hands glide over the main guilloché rose gold dial adorned by an engraved, painted and enamelled butterfly. Price upon request
