The panda panda is a well-known animal all over the world, and is widely loved for its friendly and cute appearance. Pandas were originally distributed in the mountains and plains of central and western and southwestern China, and now they have become a protected species. They mainly live in the mountains of Sichuan, Shaanxi, and Gansu.
The base of the tourbillon 26RM26-01 is made of black onyx. Onyx is a striped chalcedony, which belongs to cryptocrystalline quartz, and its main component is silicon dioxide. Black onyx are all black. This gemstone is said to absorb negative energy and calm the wearer. The black onyx is therefore considered to have the characteristic of driving away evil spirits, and is a symbol of harmony and aura. At the top of the table is a panda with bamboo in 18K white gold, set with diamonds and black sapphires. There are several golden carved bamboos around the panda, which represent its natural habitat and are hand-colored.
