On the Occasion of Year of Dragon (2012), Swiss luxury watch maker ANTOINE PREZIUSO presents ” Dragon Scale watch” from its Art of Tourbillon Collection. This luxurious watch is specially engraved with the scales of a Dragon – a creature of Myth and Legend, whose free spirit is fired by the flames of passion. Dragon Scale watch is available in a limited edition of 10 pieces.
For a number of years now Antoine Preziuso’s flagship collection, The Art of Tourbillon, has been offering a journey based around a subject which was close to the heart of the famous watchmaker Abraham-Louis Breguet, with numerous unique variations such as Stardust – whose movement and case are set with more than 3’200 diamonds – and Meteor, sculpted in a meteorite, this is the kind of feat that only Antoine Preziuso can now pull off, along with Pop Art and Pop Star.
The lack of a dial means that we can admire the newcomer to this celebrated collection. The movement for this first interpretation is entirely engraved by hand with a “Dragon Scale” decoration in dedication to the Chinese Year of the Dragon. The dimensions of the barrel-shaped case – reaching 42 mm with a height of 12 mm – fit perfectly into the rules of proportion.
The Tonneau shape case is using the best quality of Titanium, this material is an ultra light high mechanical strength metal. Discovered in 1791, it is one of the most biocompatible Materials, with the gold and the platinum. Because of the quality of its composition, it is increasingly used in industry and in particular the automotive industry, as well as geothermal and biomedical technology.
