In the delicate “grisaille” technique, the enameller works into the enamel fine gold or silver patterns, using either a hand chisel or punch. The 13-part dial is made from enamelled solid 18-carat Pd125 white gold, with traditional grand feu black and white enamelled domed cartouches. The centre of the dial is made from enamelled solid 18-carat gold featuring grand feu enamel miniature, using the “grisaille” technique. The three-coloured hands (blue, grey and yellow) are hand-engraved and designed to represent an arrow once together. The colours are obtained without either chemical treatment or lacquer.
