Loong, as the most special fetish in Eastern culture, its image and related culture have a profound influence on oriental civilization. Loong symbolizes nobility, righteousness, and respectfulness, bearing people's pursuit and yearning for freedom and perfection. AET REMOULD Incorporated the Loong totem watch design and crafted with brand-new techniques. This sapphire timepiece "Loong" is AET REMOULD's masterpiece for 2022, limited to 3 pieces worldwide.

  (龙作为东方文化中最特殊的神物,其形象及相关文化对东方文明有着深远的影响。龙象征着高贵、正义、恭敬,承载着人们对自由和完美的追求和向往。艾特手表改造工厂融入龙图腾腕表设计,以全新工艺打造。这款蓝宝石腕表 Loong 是艾特工厂 2022年款的杰作,全球限量三枚。)

An oriental carving master was invited to craft the three-dimensional 18K white gold Loong, adding a ruby to the eye to create a dazzling totem. Cosmograph counters are decorated with exquisite ink painting while an orb is added to the 6-hour counter, presenting a vivid scene of a Loong leaping on the dial. The emerald-studded bezel and hour markers further enhance the brilliance of the timepiece.

  (我们邀请了东方雕刻大师打造 3D 立体 18K 白金龙,在龙眼处中加入了一颗红宝石,打造出了一件耀眼的图腾。宇宙计计时盘以精美的水墨画装饰,六小时计时盘上增加了一个球体,呈现出龙跃于表盘上的生动景象。镶嵌祖母绿的表圈和钟点标记进一步提升了这款腕表的光彩。)

The rotor was transformed by our designers, featuring a "Loong" character written by a master of Chinese calligraphy. The wonderful mechanical structure is clearly revealed through the sapphire case back. The application of the sapphire crystal strap is considered a breakthrough in the watch modification industry. One is offered a wearing experience like never before with a completely sapphire integrated timepiece.

  (摆陀由我们的设计师改造,带有一个由中国书法大师书写的“龙”字。奇妙的机械结构透过蓝宝石底盖得以清晰地展现。蓝宝石水晶表带的运用被认为是手表改装行业的一个突破。一个完全蓝宝石集成的腕表提供了前所未有的佩戴体验。)

艾特改造厂网站 Loong 腕表网页

  艾特改造厂在介绍龙腕表时,完全没有使用 dragon 一词。它对 loong 的介绍是非常准确的:“东方文化中最特殊的神物,其形象及相关文化对东方文明有着深远的影响”(Loong, as the most special fetish in Eastern culture, its image and related culture have a profound influence on oriental civilization.),“象征着高贵、正义、恭敬”(Loong symbolizes nobility, righteousness, and respectfulness),是一种图腾(the Loong totem)。

  “打造 3D 立体 18K 白金龙,在龙眼处中加入了一颗红宝石”(to craft the three-dimensional 18K white gold Loong, adding a ruby to the eye)。这句话则把 loong 和手表中龙的视觉形象联系在了一起,外国人即使不想知道什么是 Loong 也不可能了。

  这款手表价值不菲。有网站估价每只在一百万美元左右。

  今天看见价格了:每只 24.8万美元。
