Adorn - - WATCH OUT -

The DB25 Im­pe­rial Foun­tain snake watch is one of 12 unique time­pieces whose hand-en­graved solid gold di­als are adorned with an­i­mal sym­bols of the tra­di­tional Chi­nese zo­diac. Draw­ing in­spi­ra­tion from the bronze an­i­mal heads that once graced a foun­tain in the Old Sum­mer Palace out­side Bei­jing, each of the cen­tral en­grav­ings by artist Michèle Rothen uses the bas-relief tech­nique, and is dec­o­rated with Grand Feu enam­elling.
