This time the blue tits are very different

The visual focus of the entire watch is the blue tit in the ball! Birds have always been an important creative proposition of JAQUET DROZ.

As long as the pusher at 2 o’clock is activated, the bird will begin to flutter its wings, open its beak, and rotate in place.
It really sounds like a bird!
What’s even more amazing is that this bird also makes a beautiful chirping sound. The brand reduced the sounding system originally used for antique bird chimes to a large extent, and concentrated it on watches with square inches, while retaining the effect of loud bird chimes. Its technical difficulty can be imagined. The movement of the movable device is driven by three cams, one of which drives the bird to rotate, the other drives the beak to open and close, the wings and bird tail move, and the three control the tone. The chirping bird sound comes from the sapphire crystal sound system in the micro-mechanical device in the movement. It is designed by the bellows and is generated by air. In order to make the timepiece sound long and pleasant, the brand presents the melody in three different tones. The brand has also conducted long-term in-depth research on the vibration of the movement parts to reduce the noise generated during the operation of the machine. As a result, the noise of the new work during the operation of the machine is almost inaudible, and the bird song is louder and longer.
