DRACO Awakening Chronograph, Gunmetal

£289.00 (incl. VAT)

A limited edition, hand-assembled masterpiece. Powered by a mecha-quartz movement, it ensures reliability without compromise and provides the best of both worlds, quartz precision and mechanical functionality.

Key Features

Depending on the amount of light and angle of view, the dial “opens up” to give an insight on the movement and the date wheel, to allow us a deeper understanding of the passing time, transforming from a completely normal-looking watch to something unique. “We named this effect “transformé”, the first of its kind.”  DRACO have used the geometrical dragon logo in order to mark the limited run of these models, and will not be used in future timepieces.

About DRACO

Founded out of a dissatisfaction with the current offering on the market, DRACO offers a range of superior-quality products that are the epitome of where form and functionality meet. With a focus on creating innovative timepieces and accessories that are as robust as they are versatile, each piece is meticulously handcrafted, incorporating state-of-the-art features and trend-setting aesthetics into every design. Our offering celebrates the meeting point between the timeless craftsmanship of old and the endless possibility that the future holds.

Our name is representative of the foundational underpinnings of our brand and draws inspiration from the Latin word Draco, which, translated into English, means Dragon. With the dragon icon conjuring up images of immortality and the mastering of time, it becomes the most fitting symbol for our brand, with our flagship product being the ever-enduring timepiece. Designing our logo to reference an ancient Chinese legend, we’ve set out to allow all of our customers to claim ‘emperor’ status by investing in our one-of-a-kind products as well as in the DRACO brand experience.
