The Jaquet Droz Grande Seconde And The Béjart Ballet Lausanne

Haute Time


The House of Jaquet Droz knows as much about traveling and the performing arts as it does about timekeeping. It was back in 1758 that Pierre Jaquet-Droz and his son Henri-Louis presented their clocks to the Spanish Royal Court, and in 1773 their humanoid automata, first in La-Chaux-de-Fonds and then to all the Royal Courts of Europe, capturing attention and admiration with creations noted as much for their beauty and charm as their exceptional mechanical qualities.
