Description

During the reigns of the Qing emperors Kangxi, Yongzheng, and Qianlong, Chinese porcelain production reached its peak of excellence in terms of ceramic quality and the skillful firing of glazes to achieve subtle and attractive coloring effects. In particular, the art of soft pink or violet for painted porcelain (called famille rose or pink family) thrived in the Yongzheng period (17321725) and remained popular through the nineteenth century. Our watch design is based on an original Qing porcelain dish (17961820) in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, which features rich crimson scrolling ornament on a rose-colored enamel ground.

Produced in cooperation with the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Resin case, with 18K gold overlay, hand enameled. Silicone strap bracelet. Ceramic face. Quartz movement. Case: 1 1/2'' diam.; inner circumference: 7 1/2''L (adjustable).

Art History

In the early seventeenth century, the Manchus, a semi-nomadic people from the northeast, took over China and established the Qing (pure) dynasty (16441911). Under the Manchus the arts flourished, especially during the reigns of the emperors Kangxi (r. 16621722), Yongzheng (r. 172236), and Qianlong (r. 173695). These rulers embraced Chinese artistic traditions and supported the production of elegant paintings on silk and paper as well as exquisite wares for the elite.
