Masters Of The World, Jacques De Loh Inherited To The Beautiful Time

Scholars must seek a teacher. —– Song Cheng Yi

 ‘Sneaked into the night wind, moisten things silently’. Thinking back to my student days, that carefree period was the teacher’s teachings, which have been nourishing our hearts like spring rain, and we are the ones we are today. Today, people have already used abstract time to remember the teachers’spring wind and rain. Instigate.

 As a carrier of time, the watch presents the passage of time between square inches, and the artisans behind the scenes pass the superb watchmaking process from generation to generation, and combine tradition and innovation into each watch at the same time.

 Mr. Pierre Jaquet Droz (1721-1790), the founder of the Jacques de Rouge brand, is undoubtedly a visionary genius and one of the legendary great figures in the history of watchmaking in the world. Pierre Jacques de Roy is a master of time in the European Enlightenment era. It can be said that he is not only a mechanical genius, but also a pioneer in the world of jewellery and watchmaking. He is also the creator of dreams and poetry. One.

 Born in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, in 1721, Pierre Jacques Dro has been interested in watches and precision machinery since he was a child. With a pair of skillful hands, a rigorous and careful attitude, and a proficient use of mechanical principles, he soon emerged in the field of watchmaking.

Master of Precision Mechanical Automatic Puppet Machine
 In 1738, Pierre Jaquedro, 17 years old, founded the first watch factory on Sur Le Pont’s farm in La Chaux-de-Fonds, began to manufacture and sell better watches and clocks, and added music and Automatic dolls are used as decorations, so-called ‘automatic doll clocks’.

 Proficient in machinery and good at making complex movements, Pierre Jacques Dro became the undisputed master of automatic puppet machines. His timepieces, musical fountains, or musical clocks are veritable art treasures. The ‘Writer’ (The Writer), an automatic puppet machine that came out in 1755, was from his hands, and was a wonderful work of mechanical craftsmanship at that time.

 Pierre designed the ‘writer’ as a three-year-old boy about 70 centimeters high. He sat on a Louis XV-style stool and waved his quill pen diligently, dipping in ink, writing and blinking. 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 the era when tools were scarce, it was not easy to put up to 600 mechanical parts in the doll’s body, then assemble them, and push a doll with mechanical principles. Only real master figures To complete.

 The other two works of the same name-‘The Musician’ and ‘The Painter (TheDraughtsman)’ were designed and produced by his son and adoptive son. They were taught and taught by Pierre from an early age.

 These masterpieces, collectively referred to as ‘Jaquet Droz Automata’ by later generations, astounded many kings and nobles of Europe at that time and fell. Today, when we go to the Neuchatel Museum of Art and History, we can still see them.

Bold, time-honored aesthetic master

 If you think Pierre Jacques Droe is only talented in watchmaking, then he is wrong. He is also a bold and time-honored artist. The richness and beauty of nature are also leather. El is a new and unique source of inspiration, and the bird in the Jura Valley is one of them.

 Pierre Jaquedro and his successors used the newly invented miniature craftsmanship to create stunning timepieces. Initially, these mechanical timekeeping birds were set up in real bird cages. With the continuous development of watch miniature craftsmanship, these proportionate and lifelike small life soon appeared in pocket watches and clocks.

 To say that the celebrity works of that era belong to the famous ‘birds of La Chaux-de-Fon Sur le Pont’, which is not only a crystallization of mechanical technology, but also a treasure of decorative arts at that time. The enamel color reveals every nuance of the feather, and the valuable gold and silver jewelry cannot match this extraordinary timepiece artwork. Jaquet Droz’s superb skills and outstanding talents have also been recognized by the world. European courts, Russia, and even the Chinese royal family also praised it.

Centennial brand heritage, continuous innovation and continuous writing legend

 In 1785, Jacques Droer pioneered the concept of the Grande Seconde, interpreting time in a whole new way. The eye-catching second hand movement makes the wearer better understand the passage of time, which has become the golden rule of the watchmaking industry for centuries. Since then, the accuracy of the minute is no longer unique to scholars, merchants, missionaries, and kings. Anyone who loves beautiful objects can share this relentless pursuit of precision and elegance.

 Although time has long passed relentlessly for nearly three hundred years, the artisans of Jacques de Roche’s art workshop in La Chaux-de-Fonds still aim at Pierre Jacquestro’s masterpieces of excellence and his pursuit of innovation, progress and excellence So that the brand can continue to progress and develop and continue to write its own legendary history.

 In 2015, Jacques Dro reached a new peak in watchmaking technology and introduced the charming bird watch. It is inheriting Pierre Jacques Dero’s love for the essence of the doll: a hand-made bird stands on the dial, the wings are brightly colored, and the time is given by touching the handle at two o’clock. Eternal life, and this watch is also the result of Jacques Dro’s long history, superb craftsmanship and rich imagination. It is precious and unique.
