The story behind The Loving Butterfly Automation

Like the other Jaquet Droz watches, this one also derives inspiration from a story of the brilliant watchmaker, Henri-Louis Jaquet Droz who created an android automaton and spectacular sketches – including one that of a cherub sitting on a chariot drawn by a butterfly. Taking inspiration from this particular sketch, Jaquet Droz designers and craftsmen painted enamel, built a sculpture and now the Loving Butterfly Automation watch.

The automaton fascinated many in Europe around the 18th century, this watch is a beautiful story depicting a theatrical vision of Jaquet Droz’s sketch and presenting the same emotions. The Loving Butterfly has a Petite Heure Minute dial with just one push on the crown button. The mystical view and movement of the chariot drawn by the butterfly is a fabulous play of illustrating design, story and technique of automation.

This one from the Jaquet Droz watches, is carefully built in two models with a 43 mm in diameter permeated with a light of gold with an alligator leather strap to deliver a luxurious experience.
