HM Dragon Ref. 1LCAP.M01A.C110A

The Métiers d'Art Dragon Unique Piece from Arnold & Son will appeal to watch connoisseurs who appreciate finest-quality watchmaking combined with beautiful arts and crafts. This unique piece depicts a hand-painted dragon miniature, the rich, deep colours set off to perfection by the understatement of the dial in white mother-of-pearl. The exclusive nature of this wonderful reference is underscored by its limitation to just one example.

In Chinese mythology the dragon is a divine creature signifying power and good fortune, and is the free spirit of the zodiac. This model comprising the Métiers d'Art Dragon Edition from Arnold & Son was created to celebrate this divine creature. This dragon is depicted in a hand-painted miniature, executed with exquisite delicacy of touch and featuring fine details that evoke the depth and texture of the dragon.

The expertly applied layers of paint and nuances of colour create a breathtaking sense of three-dimensional depth. As Philippe Boven of Arnold & Son explains: "The art of hand-painting miniatures takes many years of concentrated practice to perfect, and this exquisite dragon presented our specialists with an ideal opportunity to showcase their skills." The sumptuousness of the dragon is a counterpoint to the simplicity of the white mother-of-pearl dial, which shimmers entrancingly with the play of light.

This unique piece boasts an Arnold & Son in-house movement: the HM Dragon, with the ultra-thin A&S1001 movement with over 90 hours of power reserve. This movement is housed in 18-karat rose gold case with black alligator straps.

This model of the Métiers d'Art Dragon is limited to just one example. If desired, the watch is available with or without a diamond-set bezel.
