Self-winding

Calatrava wristwatch with cloisonné enamel dial.

Tropical fish, whose myriad colors are matched only by their extraordinary markings, inspired the decoration on the dial of this limited edition in Grand Feu cloisonné enamel.

The enameler worked with some 50 cm of gold wire measuring 0.07 mm x 0.35 mm in cross-section, and transparent, opaque and semi-opaque enamels in 19 colors. The picture underwent 9 firings at temperatures ranging from 800°C to 860°C. The bezel is adorned with Patek Philippe’s emblematic hand-guilloched hobnail pattern.

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

The enameler’s techniques

The enameler uses one of four traditional techniques, or perhaps a combination; but rare is she – in the watchmaking world, most enamelers are women – who masters them all.
