Limited To Eight Beijing Spot Jacques De Loire 18k Gold Carved Bird Watches

Recently, the editors of Watch House learned about the sales of relevant watches from the Beijing Hendry Group Co., Ltd. and the Glashütte Store in Shuangan Mall. Today I introduce to you a limited edition of eight 18K gold bird black dial watches, which are in stock in the store. Now let’s get to know this watch together. The official model of this watch is: J005023570.


The hometown of Mr. Pierre Jaquedro, the founder of Jacques Dro, is in the Jura valley in Switzerland. Time and nature blend harmoniously, which makes the watchmaker fascinated with the scenery of his hometown and birds in the valley . In the 18th century, the Jacques Droe family can be regarded as the leader in the field of luxury watch decoration. Jacques Droe is famous for its pocket watch case, bottle decoration, snuff box and even the surface of the bird cage. Fine filigree enamel or enamel painting. To this day, Jacques D’Oro has taken this unique handicraft as a precious historical heritage and launched two watches with white mother-of-pearl dial and black onyx dial, both set with 18K gold carved birds.


The antique gold is carved with simple geometric lines and embossed bird pictographs. The pictographs are derived from ancient traditions, and Jacques Droil gave this artistic masterpiece to the PetiteHeureMinuteRelief watch. The eccentric hour and minute dials provide more creative space: the birds are fed on the black onyx dial, and the contrasting colors are eye-catching, making the hand-made bird-embossed relief patterns come to life.


The two 18K gold birds on the black onyx dial of the watch are portrayed vividly, which is precisely the excellent decorative arts created by Jacques Delo by virtue of the carefully preserved tradition of excellent manual craftsmanship.


The watch is equipped with the automatic movement of Jacques de Roche 2653, which uses a dual barrel design. The winding can provide a power reserve of 68 hours, and its classic clover decoration can be seen on the movement’s plywood.

Quoting Cartier’s original words, ‘Time is no longer the protagonist, and craftsmanship is essential: openwork carving; gold-lined enamel; gem-inlaid mosaic pattern; layered enamel; precious wood inlay’ & hellip; The master of craftsman’s deft hands creates beautiful poems, which make people feel refreshed. & rdquo;

‘The blue enamel pattern based on blue is soft and delicate, with clear gradients and layered layers, showing the beautiful scenery of the night sky and reflecting the sky. & rdquo;

Through the gradient color, the effect of light and darkness is reflected, so that the colors of the sky and clouds in the pattern appear clear and bright at any time and place, glittering with stars dotted with silver foil. Then observe the white polar bear’s back, head and feet under the ice in turn. The arrangement of gradient colors gives the pattern a sense of layering, creating a unique light and shadow effect. Until the last moment, the master craftsman still needs to concentrate, because a few mistakes will cause the previous work to be abandoned. For example, the enamel coating is too thick, the baking time is too long, or the external pressure is too much. Craftsmanship.

There are many types of gemstones, including onyx, tiger’s eye, eagle eye, yellow petite, carnelian, yellow jasper, palm jasper, Kalahari jasper, yellow agate, mossy agate, coral and mother-of-pearl. Subsequently, the gem setting technician polished and cut the warm-toned natural stones selected into small squares with a side length of 0.75 mm and a thickness of 0.4 mm. Then, the gem squares are set one by one in a predetermined order. The entire turtle pattern is inlaid with 1,167 gems. All gems are pasted on the dial and then consolidated to ensure a uniform and smooth surface. Gem setting alone requires more than 60 man-hours.

To inlay bear fur, ten different natural woods from Europe are used, such as: holly, chestnut, poplar, willow, silver or red maple, walnut or Burr walnut, patterned maple, and Alin Mountain and other wood.

To make a dial decorated with enamel paint, you need to place the dial in a high-temperature kiln at about 800 degrees Celsius for high-temperature baking, and repeat it several times; and the painting techniques must be accurate and infallible. This magical manufacturing process takes 36 hours to make the lines on the enamel surface bright in color and full of three-dimensionality.
