Luxury Watches: Elite watchmaking house Vacheron Constantin is the world's oldest watch manufacturer and has been in continuous operation since its founding in 1755. Vacheron is truly one of the elite watchmaking houses - performing everything from the creative design process to the research and development of movements to the actual crafting its watch components and of courses the watches themselves.

In commemoration of the grand opening of Vacheron's newest exclusive flagship boutique in Hong Kong, as well as to honor the brand's long history with China, Vacheron has introduced a very exclusive limited series of 3 "Dragon" dialed watches, each of them available in only 9 numbered pieces.

There is of course great symbolism in the dragon motif, as the dragon is the Chinese symbol of prosperity, creative and divine strength. Furthering the exclusiveness of these particular Dragon-dialed timepieces, Vacheron Constantin will be making them available only at the new location in Hong Kong, Vacheron Constantin Mansions in Geneva & Shanghai and Vacheron Constantin boutique in Moscow.

The "Dragon Dials" as I like to refer to them come in 3 case variations - rose gold, yellow gold, and platinum. The yellow gold is my favorite, as its white dial provides a crisp, clean backdrop for the phenomenal engraved dragon motif.

These pieces are truly special - so special, in fact, that I think to try and describe them in words is beyond reason. I will only say that the exclusivity of these watches and their engraved dials is phenomenal by any standard of haute horlogerie, and to own one of these watches will be a true privilege.
