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.
