year of the goat watch
L: Vacheron Constantin Metiers d’Art The Legend Of The Chinese Zodiac 40mm 18K pink gold case.  R: Ulysse Nardin Classico Goat 40mm 18K rose gold case, leather strap and automatic movement.

Get one of these not because it’s the Year Of The Goat (you’re six months late) but because you’re born in that year. The animal is on Ulysse Nardin‘s Classico timepiece, which boasts champleve enamelling by atelier Donze Cadrans.

Vacheron Constantin‘s pink gold and platinum editions not only feature a 3D ram, but the dial also showcases the Chinese art of paper cutting called jianzhi: Every leaf and honeysuckle is engraved directly on the dial to give the impression that they are floating.
