Monkey, symbolizing wisdom and longevity, has rich and profound symbolic meaning in Chinese culture and the zodiac system. In the 18th century, Jacques de Loire exhibited his works in the Forbidden City, becoming one of the earliest brands to enter China. Today, the historical models on display in the Forbidden City bear witness to the long history of Jacques de Lo and China. As this ancient country of the East is about to usher in the Year of the Monkey, the master craftsmen of Jacques Dro create two new models based on the iconic hour and minute dial, each with two styles.
Jacques de Loire draws inspiration from the image of the legendary Monkey King, Monkey King, to decorate the new watch. Sun Wukong is a classic image in classical literature and is still one of the most important Chinese mythical figures. According to legend, after being curious and sly, the monkey was sealed as the guardian of the Taoyuan Taoyuan, and then he stole the peach, so he could not live forever. Peach, often used as a greeting in Chinese tradition, symbolizes eternal life. Peach tree, meaning longevity, is used to drive away evil and avoid evil. Sun Wukong walks between this world and eternity, and Bogu is nowadays, inspiring the creative inspiration of the master craftsman of Jacques Dro.
On the dial of the Petite Heure Minute Monkey, the macaque monkey rushes to the peach branch and intends to pick peaches. The picture is full of poetry, vivid and lifelike. The master craftsman uses Jacques Dro’s unique craftsmanship to present the symbol of wisdom and longevity in the iconic Asian macaque image. These masterpieces are crafted in 35mm and 39mm red gold cases with 35mm round brilliant-cut diamonds. The rotor on the back of the case is also a combination of reality and reality, engraved with the monkey king pattern, which drives the automatic mechanism of these two watches.
Summary: The Chinese zodiac has become one of the sources of inspiration for many high-end watchmaking brands. In recent years, the zodiac surface has emerged endlessly, sometimes as many as a dozen brand watches. Jacques Dro is personally considered to be more in line with Chinese tradition Brands with cultural elements, from allegorical meanings to the zodiac expressions, are all more willing to pay for it.
