We’ve come to expect beautiful and intricately decorated timepieces from Jaquet Droz and the watchmaker never disappoints.

A Korean technique called “Najeon Chilgi” which involves mother-of-pearl encrusted lacquer was used to give this watch its distinctive floral design. The mother-of-pearl is first lacquered, then carefully polished. The flowers are then engraved and hand-painted to give them more depth and detail. The dainty flowers boast a radiance and shine that stays true to the watches name: Thousand Year Lights.
