Swiss watchmaker Breguet has unveiled a special and limited-edition timepiece to welcome the Year of the Dog.

Breguet restores two galleries at the Louvre

Set in an 18ct white gold case, the Classique 7145 Chow-Chow watch features a sliver gold dial decorated with an exquisite hand-engraved dog portrait. After sketching out the design, the engraver works his magic with various chisels and graving tools under a microscope, etching the Chow-Chow sculpture on the plate of the watch dial. The chow, a breed from northern China, is one of the most cherished breeds of dog.

The mechanical self-winding movement is visible through its sapphire caseback. It comes with a leather strap with a gold folding clasp. Only eight pieces are available.
