Since 1999, the powerful and timeless aesthetic of CENTURY’s emblematic DRAGON STONE model has made a lasting impression. The perfect geometry and strong lines of the watch case quickly became a recognised signature of the CENTURY watchmakers. In its centre it holds an inalterable dodecagonal CENTURY sapphire watchcase, whose facets have been cut and polished by the hands of master craftsmen. To perfect this majestic shape, the DRAGON STONE is paired with a bracelet of delicately articulated links and wave-shaped attachments; other distinctive symbols which have built the collection’s reputation.

Using the NACRILITH construction technique, CENTURY today unveils a new chapter in its watchmaking saga. This unique technology encloses a fine layer of mother of pearl between two CENTURY sapphires. This material, as gorgeous as it is fragile due to its extreme brittleness, is thus captured forever in all its splendour. Its iridescent effects are magnified by plays of light as each movement of the wrist scatters reflections off the 36 facets of the CENTURY sapphire. To play with all the sparkling possibilities afforded by this jewelled timepiece, this brand new version of DRAGON STONE in 18 ct. white gold comes in three sizes: 27, 32 and 38.5 mm in diameter.

It is in daylight that the DRAGON STONE reveals the full extent of its beauty

Even more spectacular is the DRAGON STONE model featuring a hand-crafted automatic skeleton movement. The transparency of the CENTURY sapphire dial is a window into the complexity of the movement, bathed by the glow of the Tahiti mother of pearl. A hypnotic setting in which more than 200 glittering baguette-cut diamonds meld their light with the incomparable sparkle of the CENTURY sapphire.

It is in daylight that the DRAGON STONE reveals the full extent of its beauty, offering the ephemeral spectacle of an enchanting interplay between shapes and colours with kaleidoscopic glints… pure wonder for the senses, and an invitation to a dream world.

A masterpiece of flawless proportions, the DRAGON STONE is the ultimate tribute to perfectionism and beauty.
