Jaquet Droz University: The Distinguished Watch Collections of Jaquet Droz

Nov 02, 2011

Widely recognized for his watch making talent, Jaquet Droz was also a man of great vision. Very soon aware of his potential beyond the Swiss border he did not hesitate to establish a Manufacture in London in order to gain easier access to the very promising market that was opening up in China. Subsequently, he consolidated his international reputation by opening a workshop in Geneva, the first ever established in that city. The legend of Jaquet Droz, who owned three watch factories and traveled extensively, especially to Paris, continues to inspire the collections of today and lend them a special significance.
