The year of the horse will start from February 2014, replacing the actual snake sign. And the famous Swiss watch manufacturer Vacheron Constantin celebrates the Chinese Zodiac with its new masterpiece. This marvelous extension of the renowned Métiers d’Art collection comes in two versions, either made of pink gold or platinum, each of which is limited to just 12 pieces. The Legend of the Chinese Zodiac is an exclusive line of artistic watches, based on the 12-year cycle. They showcase the leaf motif, characteristic for classic Chinese iconography, which is directly engraved on a gold dial. By subtle stage-setting of numerous reliefs applied to the golden base, the brand’s engravers created a great depth effect, while threads which represent bamboo stalks look like floating over the surface. The most impressive work is visible on the horse figure, with the every single detail executed to the perfection.

Romain Jerome’s “DNA” watches have been inspired by fascinating events and achievements from human history, regardless of whether they happened on land, at sea or in the skies. For the new “Tattoo-DNA” collection they spiced up this idea with a unique collaboration, as the brand worked together with Mo Coppoletta, founder of world-famous London-based tattoo studio The Family Business. The Tattoo-DNA collection will consist of four models, each issued in a limited series of only 25-pieces. All of them will be dressed in typical Romain Jerome fashion. That means a 50mm stainless steel case with four “paws” and a black PVD-coated, oxidized bezel that provides a rugged, ‘used’ look to the watch. Of the 100 watches in total, 50 will have black PVD-coating on the four “paws”, the crown and the lugs and these will come on a black fabric strap. The other fifty will have more bare stainless steel elements and a skin-colored leather strap, tattooed by the artist himself. The movement inside is the self-winding RJ001-A (basically an ETA 7750 with no chronograph or date function), beating at 28,800 with 42 hours of power reserve.
