Great Watches to Mark the Year of the Tiger

As the Chinese New Year approaches, as has now become an annual tradition, watchmakers release their special limited editions to celebrate one of the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac.

On February 1, the year of the Ox gives way to the year of the Tiger, and from Dior and Harry Winston to Swatch and G-Shock, the big cat prowls – or in some cases plays like a kitten – on dials and the bracelets. The myth has it that people born under the sign of the Tiger are fiercely independent, powerful and ambitious (they include Queen Elizabeth II, Tom Cruise and Lady Gaga) – and, according to horoscopes, this year of the Tiger is all about being brave. Arm yourself with a watch and get started.
