Jaquet Droz Tropical Bird Repeater

Idyllic nirvana

The beautiful colourful dial Tropical Bird Repeater shows a scene of an exotic oasis, a pearl in arid desert. The three-dimensional elements, manually carved, stamped and then drawn, breathe life into exotic luxurious flora and fauna: ostentation itself.

The birds relax in paradise, take off from the water surface, others are waiting for their sip of refreshing water. In a green pasture there is another hand-painted spectacle: a live peacock, which prides itself on its luxurious feathers, while a toucan opens its beak (it looks as though he is smiling) and plays among the palm leaves. At twilight, our birds in paradise accompany the flight of dragonflies who dip in the water, creating the illusion of idyllic nirvana. 

On the dial there are seven different mechanical animations: a waterfall, dragonflies, a peacock, tropical leaves, toucans and hummingbirds. For example the hummingbird moves up and down; a perfect animation of flight. Everything is rendered with masterly dexterity, visualization of perpetual motion is perfect.

Only one small minus: the number of watches is limited to only eight pieces around the world.

These luxury watches represent tremendous amount of work

These exceptional watches have been developed in the course of three years, requiring perfect, flawless work. Three artists worked on the completion of the dial. The 18-carat red-gold case with a diameter of 47 mm Tropical Bird repeater is beautifully engraved by hand. The minute and hour hands are made of gold; they are placed on dark background. The black and white contrast offers excellent recognition, especially with regard to the natural scenery. This piece is mainly intended for men. The price of this exceptional luxury product is 680,400 Swiss francs; i.e. approximately CZK 15,000,000.

Would you like to own such a jewel? We certainly would.
