Unknown Tips about enamel watch
Enamel was an original process of ancient Persian. At first glance, it has a porcelain feeling that belongs to both the jewel and jade.
Specifically, the enamel process is a mixture of metal oxides such as quartz. Then put in a container and add water to form a powder. Third, blended with oil to become a glass coating. Fourth, applying like a painting to a metal or porcelain. And the last, it is then fired in a kiln. So the utensils decorated with this material are enamel.
The enamel owns these characters: warmth jade, brilliance jewels and meticulousness of bone china. What’s the most important thing is that this material will not oxidize and fade, which has become a unique landscape in luxury watches.
At the end of the 15th century(Spanish and Portuguese navigators began the long journeys and adventures to explore the continents that were still unknown), the finest craftsmanship of enamel ushered in the most brilliant moments. In order to meet the needs of the era of great navigation, the craftsmanship of enamel has been widely used in the dial decoration of pocket watches.

Combination of blue steel hands, Arabic numerals and classic train track minute scales further highlights the classic style.
The overall design of this watch is clear and concise, but the large window at 6 o’clock reveals its complexity: a one-minute tourbillon overhanging under a black polished bridge. This tourbillon not only counteracts the effects of gravity, but also has two patents (In 1997, it was first applied to LANGEMATIK and the patented zeroing device in 2008 cooperated with the stop-second function of tourbillon to ensure the stop and set time of watch to the second).
