As the creator of watches, clocks and automatons universally recognised for they elegance and finesse, Pier Jaquet Droz succeeded in making people the extreme complexity of the mechanisms required to operate his models. He became the undisputed master of animated timekeepers including songbirds, fountains and music watches, es well es the brillant creator of automatons.

Today, the brand is still inspired by his dreams, his extraordinary horological masterpieces, his exceptional automatons, and his quest for innovation, progress and excellence. Operating in the Haute Horlogerie segment, Montres Jaquet Droz SA excels in the art of one-off and very limited-edition items. The brand has revived traditional crafts that were disappearing: outstanding illustrations of this include its spangled dials and those of black Grand Feu enamel.
