SOME LIKE IT HOT

The Peak (Singapore) - - Watches -

The au­toma­ton ge­niuses over at Ja­quet Droz have re­ally out­done them­selves with its lat­est birdthemed re­peater. The Trop­i­cal Bird Re­peater places the fa­mil­iar mo­tif in a lush set­ting with seven an­i­mated el­e­ments that can play out four sce­nar­ios when the re­peater is ac­ti­vated. These in­clude a flow­ing wa­ter­fall, an emerg­ing tou­can and flit­ting drag­on­flies with Su­per­lu­mi­nova-coated wings. It’s a lot of move­ment for a case just 47mm wide and 18.95mm thick. Ev­ery item on the mother-of-pearl dial is en­graved and painted by hand, which means none of the eight pieces made are ex­actly the same. It is equipped with a 60-hour power re­serve and beats at 3Hz.
