We have entered the Year of the Dragon and it seemed very natural for the proudly Chinese brand to once again celebrate its unique and fascinating culture.
The Chinese Timekeeper, Special Edition celebrating the Year of the Dragon, Three Hands Automatic is the first timepiece of the collection in 24k Yellow Gold representing a Chinese Dragon in all its might.
While the case contains one layer made of a 24k Yellow Gold our attention is automatically attracted by the most beautiful and astonishing dial. Indeed our dragon is applied on the dial and not simply painted or embossed. This is another level of craftsmanship for a jaw-dropping result. But rest assured, however real it may seem, our dragon will not jump out of your watch!
The 2 most distinctive elements of a CTK dial remain – that is the brand signature at 12 o’clock and the number ‘十’ at 10 o’clock – but all other numerals and functions are taken away to maintain purity of the design and the eloquence of the black sunray dial finishing.
This Special Edition is limited to just 18pieces and comes with 2 straps. The first one is a black Alligator while the second one is the brand signature strap, the ‘double black calf leather’ strap with black stitching. If you were looking to make a bold statement – look no further, the CTK12 will do just that.
