The Rolling Stones high level timepieces launch from Jaquet Droz

High profile watchmaker, Jaquet Droz has teamed up with the Rolling Stones to create a collector’s edition timepiece.

The Rolling Stones Automaton sees the Jaquet Droz craftsmen reproduce the Stones’ stage set by hand in a 43mm red gold case.

Fans will find Ronnie Wood’s Fender Strat and double stack, the minimalist drums of the late Charlie Watts, plus Keith Richard’s famous five-string guitar, which has carved the most legendary grooves in rock and roll.

These are also represented, with their original cover, in the form of six iconic albums from 1971 to the present day.

Each collector will be able to choose the covers of the albums. They will be reproduced by hand by the craftsmen of Jaquet Droz on a disc able to rotate, on demand, around the central stage. The rotation lasts about 30 seconds and can be operated eight consecutive times thanks to the push-piece inserted in the crown, at 3 o’clock.

But that’s not all: the power reserve is indicated at 8 o’clock by a cam restoring the articulated arm and the diamond of a vinyl record player. Just below, the iconic Stones logo moves up and down as the tongue simultaneously moves left and right.

The guitars and their amp are individually shaped by hand from a block of red gold, engraved and then painted. The cymbals are made of a slightly curved gold disc in order to reproduce the precise curvature, with their stand is represented by a white gold thread. The various drum toms, also made of white and red gold threads, with a diameter from 1.2 to 2.3 mm.

Even Mick Jagger’s harmonica is reproduced, next to his microphone, in a block of gold that does not exceed a few 1/10th millimetre.

On the sapphire caseback, the red gold oscillating weight will be engraved with the name of the chosen album, among the 23 available, by the collector to illustrate the image under the central stage – with its release date and the name of the studio where it was recorded.
