IT’S THAT TIME of year again, when the watch in­dus­try sud­denly turns very Asian and presents their an­nual in­ter­pre­ta­tions of the Chi­nese Zo­diac, through some beau­ti­ful métiers d’art pieces. Fol­low­ing a Year of the Mon­key that many would rather for­get, we turn our at­ten­tion to the Rooster, an an­i­mal which, the world over, sym­bol­izes the ar­rival of dawn. Per­haps it is indica­tive of a fresh start for the watch in­dus­try, af­ter a few very chal­leng­ing months! Roost­ers are said to be hard­work­ing and with a good sense of hu­mor (dis­claimer: our edi­to­rial di­rec­tor is a Rooster and pointed out these traits him­self). Let’s ex­am­ine how the brands have been in­spired by the feath­erly sign.
