Oris has selected the Monkey King Sun Wukong to be the subject of its first ever watch with a cloisonné enamel dial.

More precisely, the handcrafted dial depicts a scene from the 1961 animated film The Monkey King: Uproar in Heaven that sees Sun Wukong approach the Dragon King’s underwater palace.

The limited edition 41.5mm stainless steel watch has been co-created with the studio behind the film, Shanghai Animation Film Studio Co.

Here the cloisonné method involves illustrating a scene on a white gold plate using thin silver wire to form outlines. The spaces in between – cloisons – are then filled with enamel powder and fired to produce the final artwork.

Oris are limiting the run to 72 pieces, reflecting the number of “shapes the divine Sun Wukong can appear in.” Each of the dials – which take up to three days to complete – are being completed by the same Swiss artisan, but will be unique given their hand-crafted nature.

The decision to house a cloisonné enamel dial in a robust dive watch such as Oris’ Aquis dive watch is certainly unconventional, but also fitting given the underwater scene depicted on the dial. Oris’ new in-house five-day Calibre 400 automatic movement powers the watch.

The Sun Wukong Artist Edition is available now via Oris, priced $27,500 USD.
