Marina Milojević | 10.22.17 | 07:24 PM

The house of Jaquet Droz introduces a new automaton for ladies - Lady 8 Flower, a timepiece adorned with a prominent sapphire crystal dome covering the sculpted lotus flower that delicately comes to life on demand. The Lady 8 Flower, one of the most interesting ladies’ watches produced by Jaquet Droz has been reborn and offered in red and white gold versions, each limited to 8 pieces. Same as the original version, introduced two years ago, the watch beautifully unites Jaquet Droz’s emblematic ornate aesthetics with its signature mechanics.

Announced as an ode to poetry and femininity, and a symbol of watchmaking expertise, Jaquet Droz Lady 8 Flower in inspired by the centuries-honored ornamental traditions going all the way back to the 18th century. The new version, decorated with even more jewels, is assembled by hand in the Jaquet Droz workshop in La Chaux-de-Fonds.

The large crystal dome, positioned just above the 12 o’clock, houses the precious sculpted figure representing the lotus flower. With a single press of a dedicated pusher, which can be found at the lateral side of the case, the flower comes to life, it blooms and closes, revealing and hiding a briolette nestled among the dancing petals against the mother-of-pearl backdrop.
