- Rare Handcrafts

Calatrava wristwatch with dial decorated with hand-executed guilloché work and gold applied ornaments.

The decoration on the dial of this limited edition combines a sunburst radiating from 6 o’clock, hand-guilloched in the white gold and coated in blue lacquer, with white-gold applied clouds and yellow-gold applied birds.

With these delicate ornaments, crafted by hand and fixed to the surface, the dial becomes a true picture in relief with its play of light and shade. A hand-engraved feather motif adorns the rose-gold Dauphine hands. Twelve diamonds (~0.06 ct) set in white-gold chatons form the hour circle. The bezel and lugs are adorned with 113 brilliant-cut Top Wesselton Pure diamonds (~0.8 ct) and the buckle sparkles with 29 diamonds (~0.22 ct).

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

Attention to details

This age-old hand-guilloché technique is used to engrave straight or circular grooves only a few tenths of a millimeter thick, and three to four hundredths of a millimeter deep. The intersecting grooves of guilloché form a patina of endlessly varied motifs to catch and reflect the light; here, they strike out from the center in rays.
