The observance of the Lunar New Year has evolved to become so much more than reunion dinners and generous red packet-giving, especially since luxury brands are recognising that they can take the most anticipated festivity to another level with special offerings to remember the year by.

February 5th marks the new year of the lunar calendar, which also brings us to a new star of the Chinese zodiac: The Pig. As a symbol of generosity, abundance, and prosperity, what better way to mark the Year of the Pig than with a crop of limited edition Lunar New Year watches. 

These zodiac-themed watches aren’t only an extravagant feast for the eyes, they’re also a way for some of Switzerland’s finest watchmakers to show off a wide breadth of meters d’art techniques, making these timepieces all the more collectible.
