GUILLOCHE PARADISE

 

Looking at the current market, we felt, that there is not any good guilloche option and an entry level price.

Usually they all have stamped guilloche dials, making the dial with stamped techniques, doesn´t have the same quality of a proper guilloche, with a stamped process, the cuts that created the patterns are not deep enough, when the light incise in this surfaces the reflections that created doesn’t have the same brightness as in a proper engraved guilloche

Our goal was to offer a really good real guilloche at an affordable price, that’s why we choose to do a CNC engraved guilloche that has the same level of quality as a real handmade guilloche, but doesn’t increase the cost as much

This way we have the best of both world, the incredible effects of the quality of real guilloche but an a more affordable price

 

A VERY SPECIAL SOUL

For out movement we wanted to do a very original caliber so we took the Technotime base and re-designed the bridges and decoration in the same way that we had design the watch, following the looks and symmetry of them movements of the pocket watches from 1780.

With a complete new geometry and hand hammered decoration, the aesthetic language of the watch and the movement were designed with the same idea in mind, where the movement and the watch is created as a whole, and not two different elements that they are together by chance.

THREE DIFFERENT FACES

 
 

We took the key elements from 1700 era, develoing and changing each element for having a more original look. 

Blending the classical look with a more modern aproach we combine both world in once incredible piece

Developing and designing each details, give different sensations every time you look at the watch, depending of your surroundings the reflections of the dial behave in a different way, finding new details every time your environment change.

MULTILAYERED DIAL

For the dial we wanted to have a very tridimensional effect, and enhance the guilloche works, we created a base of guilloche and we added a layer of rings on top, for the hours and minutes.

This layer has the hour and minute marks hollow, so you can see the guilloche base below, creating a sandwich effect but with a guilloche base.

The different textures and material creates contrast, facilitating looking the time with a quick glance.

our own designed movement

The power house of our watch we wanted to have the same aesthetic approach that we have use in designed the watch, we study the movements from old pockets watches, and we found some characteristic that were present in the majority of the movements.

With a symmetrical design and independent bridges, we re-shape our base movements with the philosophy of the past.

The decorations are also done following the aesthetics of the era, with and hand hammered finish that is impaired by the mercury evaporation that they use in that time.

The machine chamfering on the edges and the subtle gray finish of the bridges creates a nice contrast with the independent balance wheel, that has a straight brushed finish, a beautiful touch of contrasts with the rest of the elements.
