Bird Repeater Falcon

J031034210

This exclusive version of the Jaquet Droz Bird Repeater is a tribute to the falcon, symbol of the United Arab Emirates.

CHF 513,000.-

Since its launch in 2012, it has become a prestigious exception in fine watchmaking: an automaton on the wrist which showcases both the mechanical genius of Jaquet Droz’s watches and naturalistic art. The Bird Repeater Falcon, a unique piece, presents a scene in the desert within its 47 mm white gold case. Made entirely by hand, it combines engraving and painting, using mother-of-pearl as well as yellow and red gold. 

This desert scene is a depiction of the millennia-old art of falconry, protected by UNESCO as part of the intangible cultural heritage from 2012: the same year in which the Bird Repeater celebrated its premiere. This extraordinary piece will be presented for the first time at the new Jaquet Droz boutique in the Dubai Mall.
