Its often said that the right timepiece can make the man. But, in the case of this Traditionnelle Calibre 2253 L’Empreinte Du Dragon Watch from Vacheron Constantin, the man is just a vehicle and the watch is the big star. A clear one-of-a-kind piece, the watch comes with a hand-engraved 18k pink gold case with dragon scales that makes the classic Traditionalle Calibre 2253 far more than initially meets the eye; instead, it is a timepiece that is a living piece of a medieval fantasy that likely draws on the powerful Chinese Zodiac sign, which aligns with its release at the upcoming 2014 Watches & Wonders show in Hong Kong. Designed by a single master engraver and powered by a tourbillon-style regulation system, the 44m wide and 15.6mm thick watch also features a perpetual calendar that takes into account leap years, a sundial, and plenty of other indicators on the clear, pristine dial. The estimated price is around $500,000, which means one very lucky man - or Game of Thrones fan - will be very happy.
