Petite Heure Minute Dragon Watch by Jaquet Droz

Luxury watchmaker Jaquet Droz has introduced a new luxury watch celebrating the Chinese New Year – Petite Heure Minute Dragon.

The Petite Heure Minute Dragon watch shows two Chinese dragons fighting over a flaming pearl. This fine, luxury watch is a precious timekeeper that sparkles with exceptional brilliance.

Long part of ancient Chinese culture, the dragon has always fascinated men and women in power. A pearl symbolizes phenomenal power and representing happiness as well as the wisdom of the Emperor and the righteousness of his decisions.

Swiss Jaquet Droz has formed the powerful combination of the Imperial Dragon and the pearl into a premier luxury watch that honors both the Chinese New Year and the Year of the Dragon.

With the stunning look of the Petite Heure Minute Dragon watch, Jaquet Droz has applied a new technique to one of its most iconic watch creations. Jaquet Droz has added infinitesimal flakes of gold to its pigments. The unique challenge resulted in their talented painters to work for an entire week to give each luxury timepiece spectacular radiance and unparalleled dimension.

The size of the watch’s off-centred subdial offers dialmakers a perfect canvas on which to express their art to the fullest. The result is an artist’s dream – against an ivory background of Grand Feu enamel, two dragons fight over the pearl.

The Petite Heure Minute Dragon watch by Jaquet Droz features a 43-mm watchcase in addition to streamlined lancine hands which are also made of gold. Subtle touches of red enhance the powerful imagery of the drawing.

A mechanical self-winding double-barrel movement is powered by a weight of 22-carat white gold.

The Jaquet Droz Petite Heure Minute Dragon Watch is being issued in a very limited edition. Only 88 watches were produced. Each luxury timepiece features an engraved number, a power reserve of 68 hours and water resistance down to 30 metres.
