ARNOLD & SON – Métiers d’Art Dragon Uniques Pieces
















ARNOLD & SONMétiers d’Art DRAGON Uniques Pieces NEW


Arnold & Son unites exquisite, hand-painted
dials with the fine art of Haute Horlogerie

The Métiers d’Art Dragon Unique Pieces from Arnold & Son will appeal to watch  connoisseurs  who  appreciate  finest-quality  watchmaking combined with beautiful arts and crafts. Each of the two unique pieces 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 these two wonderful references is underscored by their limitation to just one example of each model.

In Chinese mythology the dragon is a divine creature signifying power and good fortune, and is the free spirit of the zodiac. The models comprising the Métiers d’Art Dragon Editions from Arnold & Son were created to celebrate this divine creature. Each 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 these exquisite dragons 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.
