Fun With Music Music Box’s Wonderful Tour

‘Museum’ in the impression
Da Hidden in the city, still life in the quiet place
The Music Box Museum is extraordinary
 When clockwork starts
All the exhibits in the hall are miraculously alive
 The music box jingled, and the robot puppet danced.
Birds flipping and singing freely
As if the movie ‘A Wonderful Night in the Museum’ is reproduced
Start a wonderful journey with Jacques Dro this time

   The exquisiteness of the music box seems to hold many secrets. When opened, it gives you indescribable joy and surprise. Just like this museum, when you take the first step, it seems as if time is backwards. European palace in the eighteenth century Scenes of life reappear.

   The Music Box Treasures Exhibition Hall is located on the 4th floor of the Oriental Art Center in Pudong New Area, Shanghai. It is the only special exhibition hall in China dedicated to the display of the European music box art and its development history. Established in Shanghai in December 2005, the pavilion has collected more than 200 treasures, divided into antique music boxes and Western automatic dolls, as well as sound machines such as street accordion and songbirds.

   Entering the display area, you can see giant music boxes of various shapes, like cabinets or floor clocks, with exquisite shapes and fine craftsmanship, when they are opened, they make a mysterious music.

   The automatic puppets on display were all from Europe and were truly outstanding works of the time. Each exhibit is a utensil from a century ago, but it is still intact and can be used normally. The characters are rich in shape, full in sound quality, and easy to operate, which restores the original shape and movement, which is rare.

   There is also a bird cage clock from Jacques Droe in the museum. The original method of the bird cage clock was to simulate the song of a bird through a music box. The sound is so fidelity, and the state of the bird’s real activity is even more difficult to reproduce. Until the ‘sliding piston’ device proposed by Pierre Jacques de Roy, through this device, the birds in the bird cage seemed to ‘recover’, the authenticity of the bird song was greatly improved, and the birds were flipped agilely. .

   Pierre Jacques Dro’s ability to create such a delicate installation also benefited from his hometown, the Jura Valley, Switzerland. Here, the chanting of birds alternates throughout the year, making young geniuses dazzle from their ears. When they grow up, they create amazing works with their keen sense of nature. He traveled the world. With the change of the city, the four seasons changed, and the scenery changed. He even observed the birds and birds everywhere. Every detail and every color was restored to the clock, expressing the praise of life and nature. .

The cry of the urban jungle
   With the continuous development of horological miniature craftsmanship, these proportionate and lifelike small life evolutions have appeared in watches to this day. More than 200 years after the birth of the bird cage clock, Jacques Dro has reopened the chapter of recovery, trying to reproduce the classic bird cage clock in the form of a watch. The protagonist of the ‘Minute Repeater’ is a pair of tits from the Jura region. It stands on the nest of the bird, and there are nestlings in the nest. One tit lowered its head slightly to feed the chicks; the other spread its wings and spread its wings; the chicks in the center of the nest broke out of the shell and ushered in a new life.

   ‘Timekeeping Bird Minute Repeater’ is a real automatic doll. The scenes of birds shaking their heads and spreading their wings, young birds waiting to be fed, young birds breaking their shells, and running water give the birds new life. Just pull down the lever, you can hear the hour, minute and minute alarm bells and start the corresponding activity scene. This is Jacques Droe’s most sophisticated technology in fine watchmaking: the minute repeater function.

   The wonderful scenes of the ‘Timekeeping Bird’s Three Questions’ also added a sense of poetry and art. The Geneva Times Bird’s Minute asked to condense all the signs in the famous Swiss cities, such as Lake Geneva and its famous fountains, the Paki lighthouse, Mount Sareb, and the bird paradise Rousseau. With reference to the beauty of various places, the artisan masters once again inspired, from the magnificent vastness of the Alps to the natural scenery of the Rhine Falls, from the infinitely beautiful daylight to the gorgeous night and starry sky, showing the boundless possibilities of timepieces.

Ears and sounds that travel through time and space
   Between the past and the present, the fascinating Bird of Time watch is undoubtedly the pinnacle of watchmaking. It also expresses the loyalty to the brand’s inheritance of craftsmanship. It can be said to be a perfect restoration of the bird cage clock engraved. It accommodates the essence of Jacques Dro’s history in its own body, sings the glory of the past and promises the glory of today.

   Jacques Dro’s fascinating Time Bird watch uses new technology: a sapphire sound tube and a carbon piston. Sapphire is hard and wear-resistant, while carbon material reduces friction and improves water resistance. The piston adopts a miniature design (already applied for a Swiss patent), and its function is to pump and store air, and to produce the sound of a time signal. The charming Bird of Time watch is inspired by wind instruments. Sound, which is the cry of birds, is caused by air, not vibration. The watchmakers have conducted long-term and in-depth research, using reeds to simulate nearly real bird song.

   This watch presents a pure, simple and modern style: a low-groaning sing tit, perched in a contemporary scene with a 47mm diameter case, with a contrast of black, smoky gray and transparent colors, full of modern atmosphere. When the wearer presses the button at the 2 o’clock position of the case, the timepiece, which was originally stationary at 6 o’clock, begins to turn its wings and sing in the sapphire mirror that looks like a bird cage. The mode of operation of the clock.

   Relying on the charming magic, this bird that traveled through time and space conquered the hearts of the people. Jacques Dro also continued to innovate for this. In the continuation of the implementation mechanism of the first watch, different decorative styles were applied to the dial. From the hollowed out models that originally exhibited the mechanical beauty to the Swiss pastoral landscape with engraving and micro-painting techniques, different themes have given modern bird cage clocks different visual sensations and rejuvenated birds.
