For nearly a decade now, Panerai has drawn inspiration from the traditional Chinese Zodiac; from the Year of the Ox and Tiger to the Year of the Dragon and Pig, the luxury watch manufacturer has supported it all. With the Year of the Dog as motivation, Panerai has revealed plans for a limited edition Luminor 1950 Sealand 3 Days Automatic Acciaio.

Produced by Officine Panerai to commemorate another sign of the Chinese Zodiac, the Luminor 1950 Sealand 3 Days Automatic Acciaio honors the Year of the Dog’s virtues, and immortalizes the central figure with a special black and gold dog graphic. The timepiece combines the finest in Italian craftsmanship with some of ancient China’s strongest ideological motivators, including linear time scales, Arabic numerals, carefully-carved gold, repeated polishing and more artisanal techniques are employed to make this one of Panerai’s sharpest recent creations.

You can take a look at the watch above. The timepiece itself is limited to only 88 models and can only be purchased at select Panerai brick-and-mortar boutiques.

Around this time last month, Panerai was busy promoting the classically-elegant Radiomir 1940 3 Days Oro Rosso 42mm.

In other watch-related news, Paul Newman’s legendary Daytona Rolex just became the world’s most expensive wristwatch.
