Jaquet Droz The Bird Repeater Geneva Edition
A birdcage with a diameter of 47mm would seem to be on the small side – certainly for two adult birds and a nest filled with two babies, as well. Still, Jaquet Droz has managed to find a comfortable home for these feathered friends.
Jaquet Droz previously made a watch with songbirds and this is the latest edition, limited to eight pieces. It is equipped with minute repetition and features hand-engraved and painted goldfinches that move when the mechanism is activated. A watch with and for goldfinches, because its price tag is 416,600 euro.
