Self-winding

Calatrava wristwatch with dial in cloisonné enamel enriched with miniature painting on enamel over hand-executed guilloché work.

“Cinque Terre” near Genoa: this limited edition pays tribute to one of Italy’s most famous site.

First, the gold dial was adorned with delicate hand-guilloched patterns. The enameler then shaped the outlines of the Grand Feu cloisonné enamel decoration, using 48 cm of gold wire measuring 0.1 mm x 0.4 mm in cross-section, before bringing it to life with opaque, transparent and opalescent enamels in 33 colors. In areas such as the water, the guilloched decoration shines through the color, a style of enameling known as flinqué. Details were refined with miniature painting on enamel. Each dial required between 10 and 22 firings at temperatures ranging from 800°C to 820°C. The bezel and lugs are set with 113 brilliant-cut Top Wesselton Pure diamonds (~0.8 ct) and the buckle sparkles with 29 diamonds (~0.22 ct).

Housed in a rose-gold case, the caliber 240 ultra-thin self-winding movement may be admired through the sapphire-crystal back.

Inspiration

For decades, Patek Philippe has been helping to preserve age-old decorative skills by regularly commissioning pieces from artists who are either independent, creating in their own studios, or who are based in the company’s Geneva workshop and dedicated to rare handcrafts. How does Patek Philippe ensure that these skills continue to flourish?
