- THE WRITER BY PIERRE JAQUET-DROZ
COURTESY OF MONTRES JAQUET DROZ SA, THE WRITER BY PIERRE JAQUET-DROZ (1774) WILL BECOME THE AMBASSADOR OF AUTOMATES & MERVEILLES TO CHINA
The Writer was the first Jaquet-Droz automaton. Its creator Pierre Jaquet-Droz began work on it in 1768, pursuing his research in the field of picturesque mechanisms and the artificial duplication of life and motion.
Pierre Jaquet-Droz, Henri-Louis Jaquet-Droz and Jean-Frédéric Leschot never made the journey to China. However, their reputation, based on the superior quality of their goods, became well established in that country.
Next December, The Writer will travel to China for the first time.
Thanks to the generous support of Montres Jaquet Droz SA, a new chapter of the story of the clockmakers from La Chaux-de-Fonds will open with a handsome tribute to three remarkable men: Pierre Jaquet-Droz, Henri-Louis Jaquet-Droz and Jean-Frédéric Leschot, master craftsmen and gifted entrepreneurs.
