Jaquet Droz Video. The Art of Paillonné Enameling
Third video of a serie dedicated to Jaquet Droz's know-how.
An art of enameling that involves covering ornamental paillons (tiny motifs or paillettes, cut from gold or silver leaf) with fondant (translucent enamel). This technique is central to Jaquet Droz’s traditional expertise. During the 18thcentury, the company’s founder transformed the technique into an art.
An elegant, outward-looking philosophy that dates back to the Age of Enlightenment is still at the heart of Jaquet Droz's identity. The fine and rare handcrafts practiced at the company’s workshops produce exquisite miniature works of art and automata that combine the best of design with unprecedented levels of horological know-how.Find out more
