The art of stained glass enamel: Jaquet Droz created a stained-glass clock

In honor of its 280th anniversary Jaquet Droz watch house released the Smalta Clara model, the body of which is a stained-glass window with a tiger image. In the manufacture of these watches the masters used the technique of hot stained-glass enamel, which was developed about 1500 years ago. The composition of several colored elements of different shapes, is not tied to a metal base, it supports itself, soo passing light. The finest details of the finish underscore the brilliance of the diamonds with which the bezel is encrusted. A small mother-of-pearl dial and the whole mechanism of the clock is shifted to the right side of the case, without covering the beauty of the stained-glass window.

Smalta Clara watches are presented in two versions, each of which is released in a limited edition of 28 pieces. The first is made of white gold with a tiger in blue tones, the second in pink gold with a golden brown tiger. Each product is accompanied by a hand-sewn satin strap in the color of the dial.
