Jaquet Droz craftsmen never seize to amaze. Jaquet Droz collection of automatic watches was added with a new incredibly beautiful model, inspired by the tropical landscapes’ beauty. Tropical Bird Repeater is an amazing watch with animated birds and animals.
There is a whole world on the mother-of-pearl dial framed by rose gold case. Take a trip to a paradise tropical garden featuring colors’ riot reminiscent to the one that Paul Gauguin used to paint in Tahiti.
The hummingbird soars up against the background of the shining waterfall. The miniature sculpture of the graceful bird is fascinating: its wings perform 40 strokes per second! The peacock with bright blue feathers spreads its smart tail on the right, the toucan is seen through the broad leaves of the palm tree at 3 o’clock position. The dancing dragonflies at 9 o'clock position give special magic to the scene: their miniature wings with SuperLuminova® coating glow in the dark.
The model is equipped with seven animated elements, which can be in motion for over 12 seconds. This allows to create over 4 different scenes, which look really mesmerizing against still background.
The mechanics is also amazing. The regulator of the innovative RMA89 movement is almost silent, as the the minute repeater’s speed adjustment is carried out with the friction of the outer plates. The power reserve is 60 hours, the oscillation frequency is 3 Hz.
The model is released in a symbolic number of 8 copies, as indicated by engraving on the case back.
