ZANNETTI Magnificum Goat Limited Edition

Italian luxury watch maker Zannetti will present during the “6th Shanghai High-end Lifestyle Exhibition 2015” his brand new watch dedicated to the Art Collection. It is called “Magnificum Goat”, a watch unique in its genre produced in a very limited edition. The “Magnificum Goat” is characterised by a dial made out of ebanon wood engraved in bas-relief and then hand painted. It is an engraving done out of full wood where no mechanical work would ever be possible, but only thanks to the art of a maestro engraver and that of an artist, who with patience and great ability transforms a rough material into an art piece to be worn on a wrist.
The Magnificum is an important, masculine timepiece in stainless steel. The details are remarkably prepared: shaped lugs and embellished by a cuspid in their external part; back case closed by six screws with central glass to see the movement beneath. The watch mounts a mechanical movement, made in Switzerland, refined by Zannetti. The strap is in alligator Luisiana with a customized ardillon buckle.

The Goat (Chinese:羊) is the eighth sign of the 12-year cycle of animals that appear in the Chinese zodiac related to the Chinese calendar. The sign is also referred to as the Ram or Sheep sign, since the Chinese word yáng is more accurately translated as Caprinae, a taxonomic subfamily which includes both sheep and goats. The Year of the Goat (alternatively, Year of the Sheep or Year of the Ram) is associated with the 8th Earthly Branch symbol,羊(wèi).
