Jacques Dro Petite Heure Minute Dragon Watch

This is a story about the intersection of the mysterious country and the watch world. Jacques de Lo has forged an indissoluble bond with China since he clashed with each other more than 200 years ago. To celebrate the Chinese New Year, Jacques Dro has launched a new precious and dazzling Petite Heure Minute Dragon watch. The dragon is the legendary origin of Chinese civilization. It has always been a symbol of power, nobility, and honor. Among them, the five-claw golden dragon with two horns and five claws and four fangs exposing its mouth is the most majestic and noble. The dragon represents the supreme imperial power in Chinese traditional culture, and the double dragon play beads show the auspicious and healthy sign. There is no doubt that Pierre Jaquet Droz fully understood the connotation and symbolic meaning of the five-pronged golden dragon. As far back as the Qianlong reign of the Qing dynasty, the princes and granddaughters of the Forbidden City therefore experienced the unique charm of Swiss clocks. Three centuries later, in order to celebrate the Chinese New Year, the famous watch brand Jacques Drot created by this visionary pioneer created this Petite Heure Minute Dragon watch to welcome the year of the dragon.
     This watch is based on Jacques Droe’s most representative model, using the brand’s best fire enamel technology and delicate enamel painting technology, drawing exquisite paintings in the eccentric disk. Painter technicians even challenge the aesthetic and technical limits, adding fine gold foil to the paint to draw radiant patterns. Each watch must take a week to finish by hand, creating an unparalleled gorgeous effect. In the ivory-colored ‘big fire’ enamel dial, the space is perfectly used to vividly show the scene of the double dragon play beads. The dragon scale sparkles and shines, and it complements the 43mm red gold case and sharp gold hands, and the red hue makes the picture even more brilliant. The Roman numerals are classic and elegant, and the combination of Chinese and Western styles is natural, which fully reflects Jacques Dro’s courage to explore and innovate, and to be loyal to its history and traditional craftsmanship.
     The Petite Heure Minute Dragon watch features a brown-trimmed crocodile leather strap, a dual barrel automatic winding movement, and a 22K white gold oscillating weight. This watch is limited to 88 pieces, has a power reserve of 68 hours, and is water-resistant to 30 meters. It is a masterpiece of art; it leads the world through time and space and swims in the world’s most splendid civilization.
