Swiss watchmaker Jaquet Droz reveals five new watches at Basel World 2012. We present a quick study of each one

The Petite Heure Minute Relief Dragon is a sumptuous celebration of that most auspicious and venerable of Asian mythical creatures. Instead of the usual two-dimensional engraved dragon, Jaquet Droz has created a veritable three-dimensional sculpture! Clearly, the Petite Heuer Minute Relief limited edition timepiece is the fine Swiss watchmaker's tribute to the Year of the Dragon.

Hand-engraved in gold and mounted on the dial, the nimble dragon centerpiece, with its hind claws grasping an incandescent ruby, appears to be surfacing from the carved waves of black mother-of-pearl. We saw this watch in person at Basel World 2012 and we can attest to its superlative qualities.
