Combining Italy’s extraordinary craftsmanship with brilliant Chinese culture, the Luminor Sealand Horse Year Limited Edition 100 watches were born to celebrate the Lunar Year of the Horse, and continue the Panerai Zodiac Limited Series .
Luminor Sealand Horse Year Limited Edition 100 Watches
This edition is the sixth edition of the Zodiac Limited Edition. The first edition was released in the Year of the Ox in 2009, and was subsequently introduced in the Year of the Tiger, Year of the Rabbit, Year of the Dragon and Year of the Snake.
The steed is a symbol of vitality, perseverance, enthusiasm and success. Its elegant body is engraved on the hinged cover to protect the dial of the new Luminor Sealand limited edition watch. The delicate horse engraved pattern is carved by hand by Italian craftsmen. Using a unique tool called ‘sparsello’, the groove is carved in stainless steel, and the gold wire is embedded to outline the lifelike lines of the horse. After repeatedly embedding the parallel gold wire and carefully modifying it with a hammer, the horse’s lines are more vivid. Since the gold silk intarsia process must be performed on the engraved and polished watch cover, any slight mistake will damage the watch cover and cause the previous work to be abandoned. Therefore, this process requires the use of superb technology to complete.
