JAQUET DROZ - JULY 2020 NEWS

INTRODUCING THE PETITE HEURE MINUTE “TIGER”

Respect, devotion and admiration, or all three at once: the strength of the new creation from Jaquet Droz's Ateliers d’Art captures the Tiger’s spirit like never before.

Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Tiger

The simple and eloquent name of the new Petite Heure Minute speaks for itself: “Tiger”. This is often enough by itself to evoke the power and grace of the most respected feline in the world. Jaquet Droz has succeeded in captivating its spirit by releasing two limited series of 28 pieces, each capturing your attention with their gaze. The Petite Heure Minute model has also been chosen to free up maximum space on the dial to display the full intensity of the Tiger’s glaze in the miniature painting.

Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute rose gold white gold J Farren-Price

Available in a 18ct rose gold case and 18ct white gold case. On a black dial (with case in white gold), a white Tiger with ice blue eyes has delicately been painted using fine brushes, some as thin as a strand of hair. On the ivory dial (with case in red gold), the Tiger displays its famous black and orange fur with green eyes, the most famous characteristics of its species.

The ultimate precision of Jaquet Droz’s Ateliers d'Art enables the fine detail of the gaze in its entirety to appear almost lifelike. The Tiger’s fur is painted with the aid of a microscope. Each hair is individually painted to reproduce the feline’s thick and silky fur. The great care taken in creating the iris and pupil give the illusion that the Tiger’s gaze follows whoever looks upon it, wherever they are. Through this magic, the fruit of an entirely handcrafted meticulous work of art, Jaquet Droz continues to explore the naturalist theme which has decorated its clocks, pocket watches and wristwatches for almost three centuries.

Both of these stunning timepieces are available to order from J Farren-Price. Contact us to enquire. Discover our current Jaquet Droz collection here.
