2016 is the year of the Monkey according to Chinese calendar. In order to celebrate the “ruler” of the year some watchmakers created amazing limited edition Monkey watches. I was reading somewhere that if you want to attract happiness and luck to your life in 2016, you need to have amulet with the monkey on it. Amulet is something you should have with you all the time, so I guess monkey watches tick all the boxes.
I have selected 3 most adorable examples of luxurious limited edition timepieces. If you come across any other amazing examples, please do let me know. Let’s have an online collection of good luck amulets in one place.
3 Exquisite Luxury Monkey Watches
1. Métiers d’Art La Légende du Zodiaque Chinois
This adorable watch with monkey on the dial by Vacheron Constantin has two versions: platinum and rose gold. Every version is produced in limited edition of 12 pieces. What is interesting about this watch is that it doesn’t have traditional hands, but instead day of the week, date, minutes and hours are shown in the apertures. It will take time to get used to it, but I think this is very interesting and convenient. Absolutely love this watch and don’t even know which version is better. What do you think?
2. Harry Winston Premier Monkey Automatic 36mm
The mischievous monkey inspired Harry Winston to create this magnificent timepiece. But only a few select customers will be able to buy it, as only eight timepieces were made. If watch by Vacheron Constantin could be worn both by men and women, then the one by Harry Winston is definitely for women. What with pink mother-of-pearl dial with dots of 24-karat gold, emerald-cut diamond sitting at the 12 o’clock hour and the total of 74 brilliant cut diamonds. Very feminine and cute watch. I would love to be among the lucky 8 owners!
3. Chopard L.U.C XP Urushi watch
And, finally, monkey watch by Chopard. Look at this cute shaggy monkey sitting on the peach tree created in the lacquering techniques of Urushi and Maki-e by artist Kiichiro Masumura. Monkey gathering peaches is the motif drawn from Chinese iconography which is believed to be good luck. So, by wearing this watch everyday in 2016 you will definitely hit jackpot in all aspects of your life.
Is there any watch you like the most? My choice would be Harry Winston pink timepiece :)
I am really excited about the coming 2016 year. I expect the year of the monkey to be fun and naughty. I think monkey is one of the coolest animals in Chinese Zodiac. What do you think?
Have a great 2016 Year!
