On the occasion of the year of Dragon according to Chinese calendar, Swiss luxury watch maker Perrelet introduces a special edition The Turbine double-rotor watch that features a splendid depiction of the sacred animal, the symbol of the Chinese emperors. It appears in its entire splendor when the turbine is set into action, portrayed according to the traditional rules, with an upward looking gaze, a body covered with scales and ending in a fish tail and five-clawed paws.
Carved out from hand-colored Polynesian mother-of-pearl, it is encrusted into a naturally white mother-of-pearl dial. This shimmering creature, accredited with the magical power to engender happiness and harmony, is splendidly highlighted at the heart of a black-clad Turbine watch. The Dragon special series comes in a DLC-treated 44 mm-diameter case fitted with an alligator leather strap, and is issued in a limited numbered 99-piece edition.
