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.
