Condition Report

movement is running at cataloguing, the watch is in very good overall condition


The Métiers d'Art The Legend of the Chinese Zodiac Year of the Snake was the first Métiers d'Art watch commemorating the Chinese New Year. It was introduced in 2012 in honour of the Year of the Snake.

The raised leaves appear to be floating over the dial. With the snake engraving, on which crafting the scales alone represents at least 30 hours of work, the artisan provides a tangible expression of the artistic vision behind this creation.

Then comes the stage of Grand Feu enamel dial, meaning “great fire”, a technique invented in Geneva and which remains the exclusive preserve of a rare breed of artisans. It requires strict color co-ordination, temperature control and years of experience. By applying the enamel in successive layers, the enamel specialist further enhances the visual intensity of the blue or bronze-toned dial. The necessity of maintaining tight control of the color and the reactions to the firing process that takes place in a kiln at around 800 to 900°C, calls for a specific way of reasoning that takes years to acquire. A final layer of enamel is then applied before a final firing operation that vitrifies the dial and lends a shiny glazed effect that gives added definition to the floral motif.

The snake is in the centre of the dial, poised as if ready to spring through the sapphire crystal and thus creating a truly striking effect.
