Jacques Droz Jaquet Droz Gold Foil Engraved Enamel Watch Grow Art Flower With Unique Secret

Dating back to the 18th century, the Jaquet Droz family is famous for its immortal watchmaking skills, and it is the leader of luxury watchmaking. With the passage of time so far, the brand has once again performed its masterpieces with its undisclosed unique secrets. The birth of the Jacques de Roth gold-foil enamel watch gave the ‘golden jade leaves’ swaying on the dial, and continued to write the ultimate aesthetic legend of the brand for nearly three centuries.

Petite Heure Minute Paillonnée with Gold Foil Carved Enamel

 Jaquet Droz gold engraved enamel hour and minute dial watch, decorated with antique gold leaf from the 18th century on the large fire enamel dial, earned this watch the reputation of ‘antique lace’ and also created the brand PAILLONNÉ enamel The secret of craftsmanship.

 The enamel plate of the big fire table, which is calcined in a 1000-degree high-temperature furnace fire, has become a model of Jacques de Droz’s exquisite skill interpretation with its warm and full color and ancient and constant quality. When the dial was fired into a semi-finished product, the master watchmaker quickly placed the thin gold leaf on the translucent enamel and arranged it into a unique pattern. This requires not only deep and proven skills, but also meticulous scientific calculations. The ultra-low melting point of the gold leaf and the large fire enamel that needs to be calcined at a thousand degrees, seemingly a pair of contradictory bodies that are difficult to reconcile, have been magically combined by Jacques Dro to achieve a rare masterpiece. Like the flower of art blooming on the dial, it tells the dazzling epic of ancient craftsmanship.

 In the 18th century, Europe was experiencing a leap from the handicraft industry to the production of large machines. Although the social productivity has developed amazingly as a result, the secrets of many generations of famous craftsmen have also been lost. The antique gold leaf on the dial of the PAILLONNÉ enamel watch is derived from this long-lost ancient craft. Just like those luxury custom uniforms that have been passed down for a century, only by insisting on the use of antique lace that can no longer be produced in the large industrial period, can it truly reflect the spiritual essence of the designer. Therefore, in a sense, each PAILLONNÉ enamel watch is a veritable ‘antique’ watch, which is a perfect fusion of traditional craftsmanship and modern technology. Precious person with discerning eyes.

The slightly curved lugs on the four sides echo the round and full lines of the case, and the whole looks exquisitely curved.

另有 This model is also available in a jewellery version, called the Villeret 1858 Classic Small Three-Hand Jewelry Watch (Seconde Authentique Joaillerie). The bezel is interwoven with 144 brilliant-cut diamonds and weighs 0.93 carats. The diamond reveals the feminine beauty in the sparkle.

Montblanc Villeret 1858 series classic small three-pin ‘Pour Elle & Lui’ (English: For Him & Her) also launched a special version of the watch, just like the oath of blessing from heaven is as sweet and precious. The two watches have the same appearance, but with slightly different dimensions. The diameter of the ladies’ watch is 36 mm, and that of the men’s watch is 39.5 mm. The case is made of 18K rose gold: pink shades filled with joy and romance, which is best used as a mark of love.

Montblanc Villeret 1858 series of classic small three-pin series are equipped with MB M62.00 manual winding mechanical movement, ultra-precision movement consisting of hundreds of parts, 18,000 vibrations per hour, equivalent to 2.5 Hz. It takes a long time for the watchmaker to hold his breath to get all the tiny parts to work in perfect harmony.
The base plate of the movement that emits bright silver is cut from a metal called ‘nickel-silver alloy’ and commonly known as ‘German silver’. The edges must be manually bevelled with smooth bevels. Rhodium, a rarer metal than gold, makes the movement eternally shiny. Before rhodium plating, the metal plate must be polished by hand, leaving a circular pattern like pearls on the plate. The part that makes the movement without vitality is called a ‘balance wheel’. A circular spring thinner than hair is installed on it. It is called a ‘spring’. The shape of the hairspring depends on the skill of the watchmaker. Experience, precise eyesight, and stable hands are all you need.
Before the balance wheel, there was a part that looked like an airplane, called a ‘escape fork’. It was filled with two rubies that were so small that they were almost invisible to the naked eye. They used a manual machine like an orange juicer to put the ruby Installed in the correct position, the deviation can only be a few thousandths of a millimeter. After these processes, the escapement fork and its corresponding ‘escape wheel’ can work perfectly. The manufacturing process of the entire movement is as difficult as creating a top-level gem, and only by doing so can it make the beauty of its internal appearance completely natural.

Summary: The three watches launched by Montblanc this time can be said to include the vast majority of buyers, but the limit of 58 pieces each makes the real buyer a bit discouraged. However, as far as I am concerned, this small second hand watch is very worthy of consideration in terms of practicality and aesthetics, especially the ‘Pour Elle & Lui’ special edition pair watch, which is the most suitable token for lovers. .
