Horological Japanese Urushi animals based in the concrete jungle of Hong Kong saying hello 👋!

What you you like or dislike about this dial and why?



What a joy is must be to wear! Always interesting and rewarding to look at. Excellent. [nt]

much attention from others !

other than a monkey sitting on top of Chopard .....I find the dial meticulously detailed - colors, gradients, sharpeness. The serrrations on the leaves are so prominent. If asked to judge...

...I wud say the artist def has a better handle on the flora than fauna. The dauphine hands, absence of secs hand, the thinness of the case all help bring focus directly onto the dial. Personally always liked the dial closer to the crystal. The depth of different characters cud have been played with to give it a 3D effect like seen in some other models (maybe it is but not apparent). Still a remarkable piece.

Thanks redcoral for your thoughtful comments ! The piece in the metal is quite...

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” ?

If “The Dream” then please my earlier posts. Thanks for reading about my “dream”.

My apologies...

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. 😀

FYI I asked Chopard boutique in Singapore and the manager said she needed to...
