Jaquet Droz has a par­tic­u­larly a nity for the Chi­nese mar­ket; the brand’s founder was a master of au­toma­tons, which drew par­tic­u­lar a ec­tion from the For­bid­den City dur­ing the 18th cen­tury. The brand was es­pe­cially in­spired for the Year of the Rooster, as it presents four time­pieces to com­mem­o­rate it. The first, the Petite Heure Minute Rooster, ap­plies a minia­ture paint­ing of the rooster on top of a Grand Feu enamel dial, in both a 35mm and a 39mm red gold case. The sec­ond, the Petite Heure Minute Re­lief Rooster – the devil is in the de­tails – uses a mother-of-pearl dial in­laid with jadeite with an ap­plied gold rooster re­lief sculp­ture, in ei­ther a red gold or white gold 41mm case.
