Jaquet Droz The Bird Minute Repeater Watch

As Jan often says, we try to bring a magazine type format to our blog. With this in mind, here is something completely different for your enjoyment. I have been interested in fine watches for many years, in my opinion, the Jaquet Droz watches have taken fine watch making to a stratospheric level, with of course, stratospheric prices. 

Please check out this short video, I think it will bring a smile to your face, especially the bird watchers who visit us. When the video starts click on the you-tube link and go full screen, the music and the photography is stunning. Have a great day. Eddie

What a beautiful watch, my uncle used to have something similar with hunting dogs in it, and I was very fascinated as a child. Valerie

I was just enjoying the gears moving when this video surprised me. This is much more elegant (and unique) but in a way reminded me of a cuckoo clock. Maybe that was the jewelers inspiration to create such a fabulous watch.
