Expecting a Big Year, Bird Watchers? If so, Jaquet Droz is bringing you what many will find an ideal wristwatch to keep up with the season ahead. The casing, hands, and clasp consist of 18-carat red gold while the birds on the inside exhibit colorful hand-painted craftsmanship that is sure to catch some eyeballs.
With single-barrel hand-winded mechanical movement and off-centered hours and minutes, it may take a tad getting used to for this digital world but it’s very likely the experience will instill an appreciation in even the most tech trendy. And for those of you who prefer birds to gators, the timepiece is supported by a black leather alligator strap, which is one of the rare times you will ever see the avian get the best of their reptilian counterparts. It’s available in a limited edition of only eight pieces, which might be the only way you’ll feel better about that price tag.
