In this Métiers d’Art The Legend of the Chinese Zodiac watch, Vacheron Constantin’s artisans sculpt a dog from platinum and surround it with a beautiful foliage motif etched directly on the dial. There are two versions of this piece, with the other rendered in pink gold, and each is limited to 12 pieces.

If you want an artistic timepiece but still prefer the steely, sporty look, Panerai’s special edition Luminor 1950 Sealand 3 Days Automatic Acciaio is a good option. Italian sparsello engravings adorn the watch cover beautifully, and the dial is kept clean with the exception of the hour markers, date and the small seconds window.

A hand-engraved image of a Chow Chow is etched on the gold-plate dial of this Breguet Classique 7145, with Breguet’s artisan applying a bas-relief technique to produce a three-dimensional effect. The watch is equipped with an automatic movement, which can be admired through its sapphire caseback.
