Dong Son by Speake-Marin

The Dong Son by Speake-Marin is a limited-edition timepiece featuring a red gold dial stunningly etched away to leave a fascinating motif inspired by the prehistoric bronze drums of the Dong Son culture in the Red River Delta of Vietnam.

The intricately detailed dial is complemented by the drum-like Speake-Marin Piccadilly case in 18k red gold, further evoking the beauty of the Dong Son drums.

Weighing up to 100kg, these bronze drums were fabricated by the Dong Son culture in the Red River Delta of northern Vietnam from as early as 600 B.C.
