Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Tiger (2020)

It takes a master artisan hundreds of hours to complete the tiger ”” painting a single stroke at a time.

By Roberta Naas

Capturing the essence of the call of the wild, the artisans at Jaquet Droz command your attention. The hand-painted tiger’s gaze is created using a fine-hair brush on a Grand Feu enamel dial. It takes a master artisan hundreds of hours to complete the tiger — painting a single stroke at a time and using a microscope. A close look shows every hair in the tiger’s fur, and eyes that seem to follow your every move. The 43mm watch features a white tiger with blue eyes across the bottom of the dial, with an offset hour/minute dial above it. The watch is powered by a self-winding movement with silicon balance spring and offers 68 hours of power reserve. Just 28 pieces will be made of each of the two versions.

Price: $32,200 in 18K white gold
