Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Low Relief Horse
Today, focus on the Petite Heure Minute Low Relief Horse, third and last model from Jaquet Droz' Ateliers d'Art series that pay tribute to the sign of the Horse.
A sculptural mustang appears on the 43 mm dial of the Petite Heure Minute Low Relief Horse timepiece. Extremely wild and difficult to tame, this horse from the American Northwest – depicted in red gold and engraved in bas-relief – seems to jump out from the black enamel. The champlevé technique, used here for the first time by Jaquet Droz, highlights the movement of the mane and the tail, both filled in with black Grand Feu enamel.
A horse's head is also represented on the back of the white gold oscillating weight.
Edition limited to 88 pieces.
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
