Hand-applied Precious metal leaf
The structure of each dial will be slightly different and unique due to the characteristics of the precious metal. Available in Gold leaf, Silver Leaf, Copper leaf & Palladium leaf finishes.
The case is comprised of two main parts with no back, a construction known as monocoque or unibody. The more complex construction makes the body of this piece slender and refined to the eye, and pleasant to the wrist.
Swiss quartz movement
At the back are two small convex hills. In the window of the first can be seen the gold plated Swiss Made Ronda quartz movement and its rubies – an element only found in the highest quality timepieces. The second hill’s fine blue screw is the access point to the unlocking system for the winding stem.
