Yue Fei (Pre-order)
The first modern Chinese luxury sports watch is now available for pre-order. Slated for delivery in November, the Yue Fei is a no-holds-barred effort which is nearly 4 years in the making. Termed as the "watch of heroes", the Yue Fei is a 200m diver featuring a top of the line watch case, screw-down crown, and 120 click mono-directional bezel. The dial comes in either Obsidian or Azure, and features a smoked-gradient finish with applied indices and Celadon Seal.
The Yue Fei utilises the reliable and robust Celadon-Grade B15 automatic movement.
Perhaps the most distinctive features of the watch, the hands of the Yue Fei are a world-first. The hour and minute markers are designed to resemble the Sword of Goujian, the historically-important artifact of the Chinese Spring and Autumn period which is legendary for its sharpness and resistance to tarnish.
The distinctive seconds hand recalls the shape of the Green Dragon Crescent Moon Blade, the famed weapon of General Guan Yu of the Three Kingdoms period of Ancient China (220-280 AD). Through the millennia, Guan Yu has been venerated by the Chinese people as a symbol of loyalty, filial piety and patriotism.
The Maison Celadon Yue Fei will be produced in numbered series of 50 pieces in each colour.
