L’Duchen Golden Peafowl Mechanical Automatic Watch

L’Duchen Golden Peafowl Mechanical Automatic Watch

Its natural elegance and its magnificent plumage have earned the peafowl high consideration across every culture for many centuries. In China, it is a symbol of peace, prosperity and beauty; in India, it has for 4,000 years been synonymous with immortality and fertility; while in the West it stands for renewal and resurrection.
 

L’Duchen wished to pay tribute to this legendary animal through a dedicated watch. The hand-painted dial required ten layers of lacquering and painting corresponding to 80 hours of fine workmanship. Creating a model from the Art Collection may take up to three months. This technical mastery enables L’Duchen to offer its customers entirely personalised timepieces clothed in a timeless exterior and meeting the rigorous demands of the Swiss made label.
