Although most of us may have celebrated the New Year based on the Gregorian calendar. While February 5, 2019, represents the beginning of the Chinese New Year and the upcoming celebration will come in the year of the pig.Although pigs are unpopular in some parts of the world, they are associated with wealth and good luck in the Chinese zodiac.So it is fitting that some top replica watch brands are launching a special edition of the year of the pig watch on the eve of the lunar New Year.
As part of their Métiers D’Art (artistic crafts) series, the Vacheron Constantin Year of the Pig watch showcases sophisticated decorative techniques such as sculpture and enamel.At the center of the dial is a hand-carved pig with incredibly lifelike details.The animal was applied to a leaf-decorated enamel dial with four holes around it.No hands required, four Windows display hours, minutes, days and dates, all powered by the built-in 2460g4 automatic movement.
Chopard is another watch brand that has added the year of the pig to its Chinese zodiac line.The chopard L.U.C XP Urushi pig year series features a 39.5mm rose gold case with a limited amount of 88.The highlight of the Chopard watch is the dial, which depicts a golden pig (symbolizing prosperity) walking through a forest. The pig is made from a Japanese lacquer technique called Urushi. The ancient technique required the master’s hands and relied on the Urushi tree’s juices. The Urushi tree was harvested only once a year and produced very little.
In honor of the 12th animal in the Chinese zodiac, Jaquet Droz has released not one, but four “year of the pig” fake watches.
The first set includes two Jaquet Droz Petite Heure mini golden pig models.Each limited to 28 pieces, the men’s version features a 39mm case, while the women’s version includes a set of 35mm diamond-encrusted cases.The dial of the Jaquet Droz Petite Heure minute watch shows a pig in a field of ripe wheat, symbolizing abundance and prosperity.The back of the watch has a similar scene engraved on the movement of the swinging weight.
