The fabulous Dragon of the Fire Dragon Tourbillon by Louis Moinet curls to form the number eight. The bas-relief engraving of the Dragon takes more than 70 hours to complete and is entirely handcrafted in 18K rose gold. A marvellous miniature painting in shimmering colours then brings out the finest details of the scales and the structure of its skin.
With its ruby eyes, the Dragon looks at two diamonds, which he will protect with his powerful paws that end in five claws, entirely hand-engraved.
The body of the dragon is partly openworked, revealing the coloured fires of the opal. Generally lighter than the other varieties, this Australian opal is beautifully opalescent. These multicoloured hues certainly help to bring the dragon to life!
The exclusive "Fire Dragon" Tourbillon movement is hand-wound and beats at 21,600 vibrations an hour. It has a 72-hour power reserve, stored in a barrel with a hand-chased cover.
This 60-second tourbillon movement was awarded the Gold Medal at the last International Chronometry Competition.
The "Fire Dragon" Tourbillon is presented in an exceptional case made of 18K rose gold and comprising over 50 distinctive elements.
