Jaquet Droz has unveiled an exclusive version of its Bird Repeater to pay homage to the national symbol of the United Arab Emirates, a falcon.
Launched at Dubai Mall especially for the Dubai Shopping Festival, the new watch contains a pair of Falcons in the foreground of the piece.
The Swiss watch brand launched the Bird Repeater Falcon along with the Rivoli Group and senior representatives from the Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment.
Christian Lattmann CEO of Jaquet Droz commented on the release, he said: “Jaquet Droz timepieces have always been inspired by nature, which is very great source of inspiration, for painting and engraving, as well as for our automata, which attempt to replicate the movements of nature.”
He added: “The millennia-old art of falconry, central element of the identity of the United Arab Emirates, also inspires us to realize this exceptional piece. We are very proud to present this unique piece Bird Repeater Falcon in Jaquet Droz boutique in Dubai Mall.”
As part of the special occasion, Jaquet Droz also unveiled another timepiece, the Grande Seconde Moon limited edition Dubai.
Limited to only 28 pieces, the Grande Seconde Moon limited edition celebrates Dubai with a model combining the singularity of its dial with the identity of the capital and its eponymous state.
The automaton and the limited edition Grande Seconde Moon are now on display at the Jaquet Droz boutique at The Dubai Mall as part of the shopping centre celebrations.
