Cabestan’s Dragon Nera Watch is on Fire

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


Cabestan Dragon Nera and Snake Nera


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.
