2019 is the Year of Pig, and to honour the upcoming Chinese New Year, watchmakers present piggy-themed reinterpretation of their signature models with a dash of luxury.
From Piaget to Harry Winston, we round up our favourite piggy-themed CNY 2019 limited edition timepieces for her:
Crafted with cloisonné enamel in a greyish hue, the new Piaget watch features the pig mascot contoured with golden lining. The maison's iconic 2.1 mm ultra-thin hand-wound mechanical movement 430P is used for this magnificent timepiece and is housed in a white gold case set with diamonds.
For the new Vacheron Constantin Métiers d’Art The Legend Of The Chinese Zodiac series, it is different from many other watches because it has no hands.
Instead, it shows hours, minutes, and days through four windows of a disc, a design that allows the artist to freely customize the dial space. For the Year of the Pig, the watch features its starring animal carved from a low-lying crown gold, with a face decorated with floral motifs resembling ancient Chinese paper cut flowers.
Harry Winston brings the festive mood to another level with an 18K rose gold, diamonds and precious pearl marquetry. The dial showcases a piggy and magnolia flowers beaming in rich red, which is set with 9 brilliant-cut diamonds and 1 emerald-cut diamond to truly let you shine through the Lunar New Year.
The new Jaquet Droz 2019 CNY watch features the adorable zodiac against the backdrop of a golden paddy field, delivering the blessings of abundant and jubilant to its wearer.
Cased in 18-karat red gold and set with 232 diamonds, the watch features an ivory Grand Feu enamel dial with a miniature painting of the divine swine.
For 2019, Chopard presents the Chopard L.U.C XP Urushi Year of the Pig watch, a limited edition timepiece with only 88 pieces produced worldwide that is crafted with the ancestral Japanese art of lacquerware.
Made using the rare resin of Urushi tree, which takes three to five years to be treated into a highly resistant, honey-textured lacquer, the watch is a beauty to behold!
