Chinese Zodiac Sign: Pig, Goat
His: Roger Dubuis Excalibur Huracan Performante
The timepiece developed in partnership with Lamborghini Squadra Corse is simply stunning, especially with its contrasting yellow accents on the bezel, hands and strap. Inspired by the Lamborghini Huracán super car, the Excalibur Huracan Performante features a 12° angle balance escapement with an automatic winding mechanism.
Hers: Longines Master Collection 25mm
With its 25mm stainless steel and 18k yellow gold case, this particular model just oozes class and sophistication.  The timepiece features a yellow dial set with 12 Wesselton VS diamonds and is equipped with an automatic movement rated with a power reserve of 50 hours, ensuring it will never run out of time or style.

Hers: Jaquet Droz Automata Collection Lady 8 Flower
If you’re thinking of a timepiece that makes a statement, few will measure up to this number from Jaquet Droz.
