3 D actually, especially the plants in front of the lion. This dial needs to be inspected in person. Hence unfortunately my photography skills are not worthy. :-(

That is just so cool — absolutely unique and beautiful!

For me, it’s a bit reminiscent of Rousseau’s "Garden of Eden." To have it on the wrist must be endlessly fascinating!

Yes Moana, well said in that each piece is ...

“Unique” since it is hand painted by the master ! “Master Minori Koizumi, an Urushi master chosen by Chopard for his extreme artistic mastery” Did you mean the dial reminds you of “The Dream” or “Garden of Eden” ? The Dream The Garden of Eden If “The Drea...

passing by several boutiques in Asia and will enquire about the situation.

Yes. No more.

 
 By: mj23 : December 24th, 2018-08:56
I think it’s probably because it was released way back in 2012. Boutique told me they don’t have the dial anymore otherwise they could make one for me. Thanks for checking. Please let me know if somehow there is one. 😀

Will check the AD in ...

i don’t like about this watch. In fact I’m in love. I think you did very well to pick the YG case. It complements the colors of the dial wonderfully. Thank you for the honor, G! What a privilege. You made my evening 😊 Warm regards from sunny Andalusia. Be...
