Matthia’s & Claire presents Etrusca, once again displaying its watchmaking and jewellery-making talent. The gem-set yellow gold model, an addition to the existing jewellery collection, harks back to a historical period known for its magnificent goldsmithing: the Etruscan civilisation.
The Ticino-based brand reproduces its distinctive ancient granulation technique, which involves adorning the surface to be decorated with thousands of tiny gold granules and soldering them to the piece of jewellery without changing their appearance. The bezel and bracelet links display this 7th century B.C. technique, now interpreted in a timepiece.
18K yellow gold, 34 mm case.
Quartz ETA movement.
