Angular Momentum has created and manufactured a timepiece with a dial completely made of „Urushi“ Japan lacquer with three little feathers on black lacquer ground. Base dial in black high quality Japanese „Roiro Kuro Urushi“ lacquer.

The process of making the base lacquer dial contains 12 layers of different lacquer qualities. Every layer is applied with a brush and after a hardening process of 24 hours in the „furô“, a cabinet with constant temperature of 27°C and humidity of 68%, flattened by grinding. The final coating is ground and mirror polished in various painstaking working steps.

Three Feathers by Urushi Timepiece

The three feathers made in „takamaki“ relief black Urushi and engraved, After polishing a layer of transparent Urushi is rubbed into the engraved lines and cleaned with a special Japan paper, then dusted - as in the „chinkin“ technique - one with yellow, one with red gold and one with platinum powder and again cleaned off with „washi“ paper. Finally a diamond is set in each little feather.

Symbol meaning of feathers deal with ascension and spiritual evolution to a higher plane. Since ancient times, because of the Birds connection to the sky, they have been thought of as a supernatural link between the heavens and the earth.
