Athens Watch is dedicated to reviving the silk enamel painted watch face and incorporating this superb skill into the hunting minute repeater. The watch’s double cloisonne dial and lifelike dolls are hand-crafted with filigree enamel painting techniques.
Each delicate surface needs to be baked several times. Generally, about 4 to 5 layers of enamel are required to be compared with the deep and shiny unique color of Meizhen enamel. In addition, repeated baking also makes the enamel blocks of different colors and thicknesses neat. Reducing the height of the gold wire to the thickness of the enamel surface is a very delicate grinding process. The baked surface must be flattened with raised gold threads. After careful polishing, the gold threads will be more lustrous, and the surface will become smooth, so that the enamel surface will emit a charming flash of luster. When the minute question function is activated, the concept of time passing is presented in a lively way, and the perfect combination of the dual enjoyment of sight and hearing proves the extraordinary watchmaking skills.
