Known around the globe for stunning timepieces, technically brilliant mechanisms, and now Jaquet Droz has released the new exquisite limited edition Paillone Enameled three timepiece collection. These additions to the brand history showcase the artistic technique used on the dials, and each one is limited to 8 pieces. Unique and perfect, these watches allowed artisans the opportunity to bring new life to a century old ornamental technique.
The specialized process that is used on these watch dials is where a piece of foil is placed between layers of enamel and couples azure and gold, designed in delicate fashion, and started in the 18th century by the brand artisans. The practice done in house to make the dials takes precise technique, and multiple firings at temperatures approaching 1000 oC.
