(as of April 2004):

There are three lines, all of them named after the foundation dates of the workshops by Piere Jaquet Droz:

  1. "Hommage Genève 1784"
    That is, the Grande Seconde line (click here) including iterations

  2. "Hommage La-Chaux-de-Fonds 1738"
    Which are complicated models:
    • the "Les Lunes" retrograde moon phase,
    • the "Equation du Temps",
    • the "Les Douzes Villes" world time watch,
    • the Chronograph Monopoussoir (new for 2004),
    • the Tourbillon Minute Repetition (new for 2004).


  3. "Hommage Londres 1774"
    Which reminds of the London workshop and offers the more pieces with a more sportive design, such as the tonnneau-shaped GMT (click here) or the chronograph (click here)
