MYSTERIOUS SOFTNESS

The juxtaposition of dark and light. White on black enamel draws attention to the profound depth of the dial while ensuring that it comes to life every time it is softly caressed by a ray of light.

Firing

Enamelled colours only reveal themselves after firing. In a long and delicate process the dial is fired countless times at a temperature of 800 degrees Celsius. A great deal of experience is required in order to create this radiant result.

Setting

We enhance your timepiece with the exquisite craft of gem setting, which complements the magical design. We carefully select gemstones of the highest quality to lend a touch of sparkle to your unique dial.
