Liu Jian's (Jet Li) acupuncture wristlet and watch from Chris Nahon's martial-arts action movie Kiss of the Dragon. Liu wore both throughout the film, and used an acupuncture needle from the wristlet to kill corrupt police detective Jean-Pierre Richard (Tchéky Karyo).
The leather wristlet has metal tubes attached with wire. The needles within are not removable. The watch is a facsimile Swatch® with a leather strap.
The lot also includes a framed page of hand-drawn, coloured sketches of the wristlet; a mini-clapperboard crew gift bearing the film's title, director, and cinematographer's names; and a making-of book written in French. All show minor wear from age and use. Dimensions (wristlet): 17 cm x 6 cm x 0.5 cm (6¾" x 2¼" x¼"); (watch): 23 cm x 4 cm x 1 cm (9" x 1½" x½")
