Over the course of the ceremony, guests had the opportunity to discover the new Jaquet Droz watchmaking releases as well, including the Magic Lotus Automaton. The brand’s latest creation is an ode to life and its eternal renewal. A new development that was designed and assembled in house, this automaton features a long animation, lasting more than four minutes. In this time, a naturalist fresco unfolds with all the grace and serene beauty of a Zen garden.

Boasting a heritage of more than 280 years, Jaquet Droz built its reputation with Chinese royalty, especially with the Qing Dynasty. Indeed, it was Emperor Qianlong himself who was the first to translate the name of the "Jaquet-Droz" family into Mandarin – a translation still used today.

The brand

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.
