Door sea lion: Double lion with wrists, always guarding
Menhai is a water tank that is placed in front of ancient temples and courtyards. The ancients took the meaning of ‘the sea in front of the door’. The ‘sea’ in front of the door can quench the fire with water and extinguish the fire. It is called ‘auspicious aquarium’, which means peace and auspiciousness. The sides of Menhai are often decorated with lion-faced patterns, and people want to use the powerful deterrent power of lions to deter the Quartet, so as to prevent evil Najib and protect peace. A container contains the beautiful beliefs and wishes of people for thousands of years.
This watch restores the solemn and magnificent look of the Men’s Sea Lion. On the surface of the disk, the two lions are in the shape of a ring, and they cross each side, frowning, frowning, seemingly ready to get ready, the overall shape is majestic. The static shape of the lion’s face freezes the moment of strength, aggregating the aura of auspiciousness and the guardian power.
Behind the twin lions are rolling waves. The pattern is inspired by the traditional sea cliffs. Through the undulating lines, it shows the waves and surging momentum of the rivers and seas. It contains the meaning of ‘continuous and continuous’. Decorated in dragon robes and official hem, with a distinguished atmosphere.
‘Door Nail’ Small Second Dial: Unique Reading Time Experience
In order to facilitate accurate reading, the designer cleverly designed a small concentric second dial between the two lions. This second dial draws inspiration from the architectural art of the Forbidden City, and is similar to the door knocker on Zhumen. The ring is decorated with golden yellow round nails, which is classic and solemn. In ancient times, the golden door nails on Zhumen not only strengthened and decorated them, but were also a status and status symbol. In ancient times, it was stipulated that the door nails could only be used on the gates of the imperial palace and the palaces of dignitaries.

The time scales written by Xiao Yan are as stable as ancient tripods on the outside. The change of yin and yang, the principle of everything, is fully reflected in the spatial distribution of the seals. Symmetry, balance, equidistance, center of gravity, etc. Xiao Yan’s grasp of the laws of nature.
