Childlike Unlimited Jacques Dro Automatic Dolls

For the upcoming Children’s Day, the ‘older kids’ seem to be looking forward to more than the children, perhaps because on this day, we, who have been serious in the adult world for too long, can quietly watch us Envy dolls for a long time, or simply buy a doll for yourself from the festival’s origins!
   Speaking of the most enviable dolls, one can’t help but think of the fantasy movie ‘Hugo’ directed by Martin Scorsese. In the bustling Paris train station in the late 1930s, the 12-year-old little orphan Hugo hid in a dark, narrow passage on the back wall of the station’s 27 clocks, relying on the clock to make a living. His greatest wish is to repair the robot left by his father, in order to read his father’s secret message. One day, he was surprised that the robot who was regarded as rubbish by others knew how to write and paint, only to understand why his father used it as a communication tool. In the movie, the robot is closely connected to Hugo’s deep feelings, and there are exciting stories hidden behind the robot.
   In reality, the prototype of this robot comes from the watchmaker Pierre Jaquet Droz, the founder of the famous watch maker Jacques DeRoux, hand-made ‘The Writer (The Writer).
   As early as 1774, Jacques Drouhe had designed and produced the classic ‘The Writer’, and met the public for the first time in La Chaux-de-Far watchmaking factory. At the time, there were also two of their other works-‘The Musician’ and ‘The Draughtsman’. Later generations referred to the above three robots as ‘Jacques Drucker Robots’. Even ‘(Jaquet Droz Automata). Jacques Dro designed the ‘writer’ into a three-year-old boy about 70 cm tall. Sitting on a Louis XV-style stool, he waved the quill pen diligently, dipped in ink, and nodded while blinking, which was far more realistic than the robot in the movie. According to records, the ‘writer’ releases two sets of gears in turn by a delicate system: the first set is installed on the upper end of the body, and the three basic cam movements are controlled by rotating the vertical rotation cylinder with three sets of cams, making it Move the pen horizontally or vertically, and write thick or thin strokes with the movement of the pen tip. After writing a letter, the second group of gears drives the camshaft to move up and down, first lifting the pen off the paper, and then lowering to write the next letter. As for the lower part of the body, it is controlled by the second set of gears. The 40 steel bolts around the disc alternately operate at an angle of 9 degrees each, making it possible to write any letter or symbol according to the setting, with a limit of 40 characters and 3 lines of text. The camshaft adjusts the position according to the instructions of the steel bolt, and outlines a specific letter. Different mechanical actions (such as opening a new line and inking) are also controlled by the same principle. In today’s advanced technology, making electric dolls is just a breeze. However, in an age of scarce tools, as many as 600 pieces of mechanical parts should be stored in the doll’s body, and then assembled, and a doll should be pushed by mechanical principles, which cannot be completed by non-masters.
   Hundreds of years have passed, and these three unparalleled automatic dolls are still on display on the first Sunday of each month at the Neuchatel Museum, so that the world can experience their unique style: ‘writer’ dolls The internal cam system can drive the hand to write, ‘The Musician’ can play the organ with his fingers; ‘The Draughtsman’ can draw four pictures, they are: Louis XV Portraits, Louis XV and Queen Marie Antoinette, puppy images, and Cupid, the goddess of love, riding a butterfly-driven two-wheeler.

   The design of each Jakodro robot doll is writing its own legend. These years are also a deep respect for Jakodro who created the legend, and nostalgia for the past days that have passed away! In 2000, Jacques de Lo watch and clock company joined the Swatch Group, and then committed to carry forward the expertise of the brand creator Pierre Jacques De Lo, continue to write the legendary history of the brand, and create one after another for the world. Handed down.
About Jacques Dro Watches
   Since the founder Pierre Jacques De Roy founded the first watch factory in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1738, Jacques Rodriguez has stood the watch altar with unswerving enthusiasm, continuous creativity and the highest craftsmanship. The typical Arabic numeral ‘8’ design on the dial is the symbol of Jacques de Loire, and the technique of the big fire enamel is the model of the brand’s ultimate craftsmanship. As early as the 18th century, Jacques Droo has created complex mechanical devices that are fascinating. Among them, the three most famous automatic dolls: writers, painters and musicians, have been displayed in Geneva and Paris in succession. Approval from Queen Mary Antoinette. At that time, it was not only favored by the royal family in Europe and Russia, but Jacques Drault also gained the favor of the Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty in the distant China. At present, the Beijing Palace Museum also has a collection of Jacques Drault’s works. In 2000, Jacques Droux watch company joined the Swatch Group, and then committed to carry forward the expertise of the brand creator Pierre Jacques Dro, and continue to write the legendary history of the brand. Nowadays, the values ​​of pursuit of elegance and willingness to travel in the Enlightenment era are still the core philosophy of the brand: Jacques Dro watch always integrates design, materials and professional skills with its sophisticated watchmaking machinery. Just like the brand’s acclaimed purpose-to push the art of watchmaking to the extreme, in order to bring you more enjoyment.

Connecting The Heartbeat Frequency Of Two Places – Jacques De Roy’s Interpretation Of Nostalgia From Jet Lag

From one city to another
The kilometers have brought unknown adventures, but they have not erased the attachment to the past

In 1758, a carriage carrying the dream and hope of Pierre Jacques de Rodriguez, the founder of the Jacques de Rouge brand, drove from La Chaux-de-Fon to Madrid, a 49-day trek, officially starting Jacques de Lois’ international journey.

From the Royal Court of Europe to the Forbidden City of China, Pierre Jacques de Dro brings outstanding watchmaking craftsmanship and exquisite timepieces to various places, and also shows the world’s innovative spirit and aesthetic concepts that belong to Jacques de Lo. However, like many travelers, while pursuing his dreams, Pierre Jacques Dro has always had a fondness for his hometown La Chade-de-Fon. An exquisite watch that contains the time of the two places, at this moment was given the heavy responsibility of pinning miss.

For more than two centuries, the concept of time between the two places has been deeply engraved in the spirit of watchmaking by Jacques Dro. Across the longitude and latitude, the world seems to be divided by jet lag. After hours of rising and sunset, and the day and night life reversed, Jacques de Rodriguez integrated the ‘love’ feeling into the wrist watch, synchronizing the heartbeat frequency thousands of kilometers away.

大 The two seconds are large, connecting thousands of miles away
Jacques Dro applied the two-time concept to the large seconds series of one of his iconic watches. This classic model is equipped with two eccentric dials that slightly intersect with the number 8 shape, showing the infinite possibilities of time, making the nostalgia of the 8 characters in the journey.

The brand specially developed a new movement for the two-hour large seconds hand. The upper dial displays the local time. At the same time, based on the eccentric second dial at 6 o’clock, a second hour and minute indicator is added to display the reference time. The slim second hand rotates elegantly, realizing the brand’s simple aesthetic concept in the classic and exquisite layout design.

In addition, the date display adds a complication to the watch: the date is displayed by red pin-point hands, using Jacques Dro’s unique and exquisite shape, which is clear and pleasing in the streamlined dial space. While pursuing aesthetics and practicality, Jacques Delo also continues to explore and improve the excellent technical performance of the timepiece. The silicon balance spring equipped with the watch has excellent precision timing performance and is not affected by magnetic fields.

The two seconds hand has a power reserve of about 65 hours, making it a dream journey for travelers. The large ivory enamel enamel with red gold case, silver-tone milky white dial and onyx dial with stainless steel case is presented to anyone who knows how to taste time and seize the opportunity no matter where they are.
24 hours in both places, synchronize heart rate between the two places
At 24 hours and two hours, the distance is condensed into a circular dial with a minimalist dial. Two compass-shaped hands make this new time reading design more magical: red gold hands indicate local time, blue steel hands indicate Destination time. The two hands are carried away at the same time, seemingly to follow and accompany them. When the two hands coincide in the same time zone, they are superimposed into a two-color hand, which leads to the accurate measurement of time and also means the return to the hometown.

Jacques Dross boldly adopts a single crown adjustment mechanism to create a two-hour 24-hour watch that has both the beauty of simplicity and ease of use. The ivory dial and the rich and dense red gold case are carefully combined to become a traveler. And the best companion on the journey of estheticians.

This is the first carbon fiber case watch from Oris, inspired by F1 racing, limited to 770 pieces worldwide.

   The watchmaking factory at Oris headquarters is the original when the brand was born in 1904. Since then, Oris watches have been manufactured here. The exterior walls and windows of several connected four-story buildings have been renovated several times. Only the mossy roof is still telling the imprint of time on the Swiss independent brand.

Christmas And Bordeaux Red Jacques De J005033240 Watch

The understanding of the festival, or everyone is different, whether it is visiting relatives or friends or traveling together, have different meanings, so for many people who are busy working on weekdays, a pure High-end crowds are more and more accepted for leisure. Aside from the scorching work, walking to the favorite bar alone at night and celebrating with everyone is a very good way to spend Christmas. You know, bars on weekdays and bars wrapped in Christmas are not a concept. This way can not only satisfy your body and mind that you want to relax, but also inspire you to drink drunk. Why not?

 Preparing for the holiday season is naturally indispensable. If you can get a glimpse of the crowd at Christmas, you must prepare in advance. In these days, I think casual and business attire are out of place. When the girls forget the season and put on flowery skirts, do you also need to find shirts or T-shirts with color or pattern decoration from the wardrobe? Meeting at the right time is not necessarily a romantic relationship.
 The matching of the dress and the watch is also very important. The appearance of this Jacques Dro watch will definitely make you the focus of attention. Similar to the festive red, it may not be suitable for everyday occasions. But spending Christmas with you is the most suitable, the official model: J005033240
 As a leader in the luxury watchmaking industry, the birth of Jacques de Loire gold foil enamel watches has extraordinary commemorative significance. This is not only the glory of the Jacques de Loire brand, but also the pride of the entire watchmaking industry. Jacques de Lo is legendary, the extraordinary ‘golden leaves and jade leaves’ swaying on the dial, which can even light up the Christmas atmosphere.
 To cater to this watch’s 18K red gold case, the crown is also made of red gold. This material not only echoes the warm colors on the dial, but also makes this watch look more luxurious. The shape of the crown may not be common, and it is similar to the ancient palace-style decoration style, which is very exciting.

 The strap of this watch is very comfortable, and the natural texture of crocodile leather is clear and extended. You must know that the use of crocodile leather to make leather belts is very sophisticated, not all crocodile leather can make excellent straps. Jacques Dro’s crocodile leather strap is simply a coloring process. Such red straps are rare, and the gloss and comfort are well done.

 The lugs of this watch are also very exciting. On the basis of the red gold material meandering, in addition to a charming curve, this watch looks very elegant, the part near the dial will extend the width and the angle lines are very beautiful. The overall integrity is stronger. At the same time, such arc also takes into account the comfort factor, which makes the wearing feeling stronger. The space on the side of the linked strap is not very large, making people feel more secure.

 Speaking of the dial of this watch, in fact, we must first study the manufacturing process of this dial. Jacques played the U European gold leaf engraved enamel hour and minute dial watch, fully showing the essence of the fusion of 18 actual antique gold leaf and big fire enamel. This watch has long been known as the ‘antique lace’. It is the pinnacle of Jacques Dro PAILLONNÉ enamel craftsmanship.

 The bright-fire enamel dial, which is fired in a 1000 ° C high-temperature furnace, is warm, full-colored, and of high quality. Whether it is people who love art or have an opinion on watches, I think they are obsessed with Jacques Dro’s enamel plate. There are many enamel dials, but neutrally speaking, the beauty of Jacques Dro is never easily copied. There are many examples of Dong Shixiao, but few people imitate Jacques Dro. I think this is not only a brand’s charm, but also another affirmation of the brand’s craftsmanship.
 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. It is no exaggeration to say that there are not many masters in the world who can master this technology. Even in the Jaquedro family, not every master can master this skill. 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. There are many forms of art in the world, and there is an art that only blooms among the square dials.
 Although many masterpieces of art have become distant with the passage of time, and despite the amazing development of social productive forces, the unique secrets of many generations of famous artisans have also been lost. The antique gold leaf on the dial of the PAILLONNÉ enamel watch is derived from this long-lost ancient craft. This also proves that Jacques Droo respectfully protects and follows traditional craftsmanship with a faithful attitude.

 Just like those luxury high-end uniforms, 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 that designers seek. Just as each lace has a different style and appearance, taking Versace as an example, according to the characteristics of the brand and culture, Versace is a high-definition masterpiece with lace decoration, which has a typical southern Italian style. Therefore, in a sense, each PAILLONNÉ enamel watch is a veritable ‘antique’ watch, which is a perfect fusion of traditional craftsmanship and modern technology, and the precious and precious models must be included A discerning taste person.
 Of course, while we advocate perfect dials, we also pay more attention to their connotations. The movement of this watch is based on Jacques Dro Model 2653, an automatic winding movement. Double barrels and a 22K white gold oscillating weight are important factors for a luxury movement. 28 jewel bearings shine in movements you can’t see. The vibration frequency is 28,800 times per hour. The guarantee of power enables you to remain calm and confident in any occasion. The 30-meter life is waterproof. Even if you accidentally touch the glass of someone in the bar, Say sorry can easily solve it.

Summary: In terms of collocation, this watch may not be your first choice for daily life, it is more suitable for collection, and it is more in line with its temperament and your mood when you wear it on holidays. Not all high-end watches have a proud face. This watch does not have complicated functions. Maybe yours on Christmas Eve. You need to simplify everything and focus on this beautiful holiday. Sometimes you are alone. It doesn’t matter, with the Bordeaux red of this watch, ordering a glass of wine, everything is right. Merry Christmas.
