Richard Mille, Audemars Piguet, Parmigiani Fleurier Commemorate The Year of the Dragon

The Chinese Zodiac has long been connected to the character of the individuals born under each sign. The Chinese zodiac signs include the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig. 2012 is the Year of the Dragon in the Chinese Zodiac Calendar, beginning on January 23, 2012 and ending on February 9, 2013. The Dragon is the fifth sign and represents luck. In particular, 2012 is the year of the Water Dragon. The Water Dragon occurs only once every 60 years and is considered one of the luckiest of dragons, as water is a necessary life force element. The dragon has long been considered an imperial symbol in China, representing not only power, but strength, nobility and luck as well - and luck is certainly on the side of luxury watch connoisseurs in the Year of the Dragon, with several watchmakers creating special pieces to commemorate the astrological event.

Richard Mille RM 057 Dragon

One of our favorites pays homage to the Year of the Dragon. The Richard Mille RM 057 Dragon - Jackie Chan was designed and dedicated to the kung fu fighter and famous actor. Chan, a close friend of the watch`s creator, has his signature engraved in the Black Onyx base plate. The watch, engraved with a dragon, comes in red or white gold. A true collector`s piece, only 36 of these watches were created.

Perhaps no other luxury timepiece in the world can celebrate the Year of the Dragon the way the Parmigiani Fleurier does. Parmigiani Fleurier rings in the Chinese New Year with Le Dragon et La Perle du Savoir (The Dragon and the Pearl of Wisdom). This one of a kind luxury clock, featuring intricate and complementary jade, yellow gold, and precious metal designs, exhibits a sculptured gold dragon, is valued at $3.5 million. The dragon chases the pearl of wisdom, and the dragon rotates in a circle every hour; a melodic gong chime sounds each time the dragon must renew his chase.
