A DRAGON REBORN
With the epic prequel House of the Dragons airing on HBO and following the culmination of three years of work Jaquet Droz & John Howe the legendary illustrator and conceptual artist on both The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit film trilogies have unveiled a custom-made creation that brings a mythical dragon to life..
In creating this stunning watch Jaquet Droz had one rule - The Dragon must be alive and with a total of 9 animations, it is probably one of the most complex modern automaton watches ever designed. The sequence that animates it is random, in order to preserve all its magic and mystery. The sacred animal's spine undulates like its tail; its eye and jaw open and close; its tongue moves; its crest rises and falls; its claws grasp a continuously rotating stone.
The 43 mm case is finished in the gold of your choice, and Jaquet Droz is already working on the opportunity of using other materials, such as sapphire. The case can either be engraved or left blank. The solid dial can be fully customized, engraved or replaced by a medallion in the stone of your choice. The Dragon, also made of gold and entirely engraved by hand, can have its scales more or less accentuated. It would be futile to list all the possibilities, as they are nearly limitless.
