    Maison Celadon Imperial

    Just bought an Imperial recently and at a loss of words for the quality.
    Let the pictures do the talking.

    Thanks! If I may reply on melburn833's behalf...


    The Celadon Seal is engraved in gold, and next to it is the Chinese name of the Celadon Imperial - 狀元表, referring to the number one scholar of the nation, a title of paramount esteem in Imperial China. In 2200 years of Imperial Examinations, there have only been 596 such Zhuangyuan scholars. In contemporary times, the title has come to mean "the champion”, and so is our watch a champion of a great cause, whose quality and refined design tower above its competition.

    The two smaller rows on the left (remember that Chinese is traditionally read vertically downwards, from right to left) say “實現重大使命,傳承中華文明“ - "To accomplish a momentous mission, in carrying on Chinese civilization”.

    The use of Chinese Scroll Stripe finishing and the contrast of Xingkai character script of different sizes lend the effect of viewing a Chinese painting, which traditionally displays the seals of all their owners and the title in a larger script than the text.

    Thank you--that's a very beautiful watch. Looking forward to future releases from Celadon and to owning one myself...

    Re: Maison Celadon Imperial

    Can anyone speak to how big the Imperial wears? I'm slightly concerned that 38mm might be a bit small for 7.25" wrists. :(
