Happy Chinese new year
This lunar year brings the year of the dog that are universally seen as creatures of loyalty and trust, which inherently encourage the boosting of unity and collaboration.
The festival is celebrated either in January or February because the Chinese use a lunar calendar, which is based on the movement of the moon.
Although the lunar year occurs in the winter, it is called the Spring Festival or the “start of spring”, marking the end of the coldest part of winter, when the Chinese traditionally look forward to the beginning of spring.
Follow the lunar moon this year with our selection of watches from JLC.
