The Coiled Dragon Lies Hidden, Lacquer Glitters Like Golden
The design of this double-sided watch dial sees the tourbillon side take on a rhinoceros leather lacquer texture to signify the scales of the dragon's body, swirling with flowing clouds and water as if there is a coiled dragon lying within the dial, poised to strike. The dragon head "conceals" itself on the reverse side, alluding to the Chinese concept of "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," and is inspired in design from the dragon patterns on Tang dynasty imperial robes, robust and majestic.
Parts of the dragon body and dragon pearl inlay use opal gemstones, one of the Five Great Jewels, combined with golden lacquer, employing lacquer with gold and radiant opal sparkle to signify the luster of the dragon scales and jewels; the dragon teeth inlay uses white shell dots in combination with silver lacquer inlay; and the dragon head and tourbillon side respectively apply rhinoceros leather, lacquer inlay, gilding, dome accentuating techniques with polishing and reflections paired with silk-pinching to form rich solid-void contrast with the lacquer textures, amplifying a heightened sense of depth through the watch dial, while the dragon tongue area uses plain vermillion lacquer containing trace cinnabar elements for evil-warding.
The overall watch utilizes a dual-layer design, with the outer-facing surface giving prominence to the subtle charm of pure lacquer craft, and the off-center tourbillon at 6 o'clock adding dynamic motion; the underside fuses an auspicious pattern from Chinese art of a dragon playing with a luminous pearl, symbolizing tireless pursuit of the good life and continuous spiritual legacy spanning generations; the motif signifies blessings for prosperity and happiness filling one's home.
