ENTER THE DRAGON. The world of independent watch brands is often the one to truly push the limits of imagination. Among the members of this group, Cabestan is a relatively young watch house that takes the word “independent” seriously
Their Dragon Nera and Snake Nera novelties are true showstoppers: an inverted tourbillon, a fusée-and-chain transmission and an intricate sculpture in the middle.
The case is a one of a kind, with four “hidden” crowns on the sides to tweak the time, wind the watch, and access other functions.
The Dragon Nera lives up to its name by incorporating a beautiful dragon figurine in the center, while the Snake Nera has, obviously, a snake figurine instead.
Even better, Cabestan does a flying job with customization, including for a client who asked for the figurine of a panda smoking a bamboo pipe.
