Prestige (Singapore)



Issued in just eight pieces to commemorat­e the 300th anniversar­y of founder Pierre Jaquet-droz’s birth, the Bird Repeater – an automaton with a minute repeater – is the culminatio­n of all the house’s Ateliers d’art techniques in a single piece, blending traditiona­l watchmakin­g know-how with unrivalled automaton expertise. Entirely engraved, painted and assembled by hand, the scene on this incredible dial depicts the idyllic landscape of La Chaux-de-fonds. And if you look closely, the farmhouse on the

right is a replica of the founder’s birthplace three centuries ago. Breathing life into this 47mm red gold creation are the animations of two robins feeding their hungry chick, and an egg hatching. The Bird Repeater 300th Anniversar­y Edition

is powered by the hand-wound mechanical movement and minute repeater, Jaquet Droz RMA88.
