The History of Jaquet Droz
In the year 1738, Pierre Jaquet-Droz was the first watchmaker to open a workshop in Geneva. After the death of his wife and daughter, he focused entirely on his work as a watchmaker. However, a fateful encounter was to change his whole life, because it opened the door to an international career. His destiny’s name was Lord Marischal, Governor of the Principality of Neuchâtel. He used his relationship with the Spanish Royal Court and opened further doors to royal families in Spain, France, England, the Netherlands, and even Russia. The credit for convincing the royal houses ultimately should go to his son Henri-Louis: a brilliant inventor with extraordinary visions and enchanting creations.
