SWISS WATCH GALLERY WELCOMES JAQUET DROZ TO ITS PAVILION KUALA LUMPUR BOUTIQUE

Kuala Lumpur, 26 September 2018 – Swiss Watch Gallery proudly welcomes luxury Swiss watchmaker Jaquet Droz to its stellar line-up of brands. The watchmaker’s extraordinary timepieces will now be available in Malaysia exclusively at the Swiss Watch Gallery boutique in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. With the 280-year-old brand in its portfolio, Swiss Watch Gallery offers an even more outstanding selection. Going by the credo “Some watches tell time, some tell a story”, Jacquet Droz timepieces are works of an art for watch connoisseurs.

To inaugurate the partnership, Swiss Watch Gallery and Jaquet Droz hosted VIP clients to an exclusive showcase at The Private Room at The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur on 26 September. The evening included an Enamel Painting Workshop with a master painter from the Manufacture in La Chaux-de-Fonds and a close-up viewing of the brand’s 2018 novelties, following by a three-course gourmet dinner. The enamel painting workshop offered insight into the watchmaker’s art of craftsmanship and the twenty-five guests became artists for a day and learnt hands-on the intricacies of miniature enamel painting.

Among the evening’s highlights was the presentation of the Parrot Repeater Pocket Watch, a one-of-a-kind automation with minute repeater, created to commemorate the Manufacture’s 280th anniversary this year. This unique piece represents the entire spectrum of Jaquet Droz craftsmanship in a single pocket watch. It carries on the long tradition of automata originally established by the founder, Pierre Jaquet-Droz, spurring the Manufacture today to push new technical, creative and artistic boundaries.

The presentation was delivered by Jaquet Droz CEO Christian Lattmann, who flew in all the way from Switzerland to represent the brand at the opening of its first point of sale in Malaysia. This new partnership reinforces Swiss Watch Gallery’s commitment to continuously evolve and offer exceptional, new-to-market brands in the watch marketplace.

Since it was first established in 1738, Jaquet Droz has perpetuated the spirit of innovation and aesthetic refinement of its founder, Pierre Jaquet-Droz. He was one of the greatest craftsmen of the 18th century. Born in la Chaux-de-Fonds in 1721, he was a master watchmaker of genius and vision who marked the history of his profession. To this day, the Manufacture named for him continues to employ exceptional craftsmanship to develop timepieces with unique character, notably including its automaton models which never cease to astound and enchant, and its Ateliers d’Art limited editions. For 280 years, the brand has cultivated a spirit of excellence and innovation, passing down the values of emotion and poetry while building its future day after day.

Swiss Watch Gallery is proud to be a part of its growth story in Malaysia.

Jaquet Droz timepieces are now available in Malaysia exclusively at Swiss Watch Gallery, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. For more information or to make an appointment, head to swisswatchgallery.com.my Stay updated with us on Facebook @swisswatchgallerymy and Instagram @swisswatchgallery.
