Jaquet Droz Charming Bird

The Jaquet Droz Charming Bird is one of the most fascinating wristwatches for the time being. I made a video so you can see and hear the little bird in its watch…

 

Conceived and made in Switzerland by some of the best and most talented watchmakers…

This ultra complicated timepiece, for which several patents have been filed, differs from its historic much bigger predecessors in its modern, pared-down esthetic, in which we find a miniature singing bird ensconced in a 47mm-diameter timepiece with a determinedly contemporary look featuring black, charcoal-gray and transparent elements.

    The watches are beautiful just not to my personal tastes. Of this genre I like the earlier watch with two birds inspecting a clutch of eggs.
    But it is the first time I have seen a scotch yoke used in a watch. That is the very active piece to the right of the bird.
    Jaquet Droz Writing Boy must be the epitome automatons.

    I think JD watches are mechanical poems, which are created by poets!

    Simply awe-inspiring stuff!

    The artists at JD do not assemble watches, they create poems for the wrist. IMHO JD is one of the most stunning watch brands.
