    The dragon is the god in traditional Chinese culture. The Dragon Boat Festival is also about racing dragon boats. A watch that plays with dragons is obviously in line with the season. As the first watchmaking factory in China in the 18th century, Jacques de Lo’s China complex is self-evident. This dragon watch features a symbolic design with ancient Chinese power and wisdom as the dial design. Gold is carefully carved into the dragon-shaped pattern on the dial, revealing the majestic magnificence of the dragon playing in the water. The Golden Dragon seemed to float out of the ocean of black mother-of-pearl, and her body was more pulsating. Carving on this delicate material requires meticulous attention, and today Jacques de Ronaldo has become a respected expert in the industry. The dazzling black onyx on the back of the case is engraved with a dragon tail, creating the real effect of the golden dragon on the watch.
    The design of the case is even more painstaking. The gloss of red gold makes every detail of the dial pattern stand out, like the subtle interweaving of volume, material and light and shadow, which is extraordinary in a specific thickness of the mirror. The beauty makes the scene of Jinlong playing in water come to life. This watch is limited to 88 pieces.

    Glashütte created eight watches, each equipped with ceramic discs made by Mason Porcelain Factory, all of which are decorated with hand-drawn delicate dragon patterns and painted with ceramic pigments containing pure gold powder.
