The Rising Star is a young unicorn with a bright future. The dial is handcrafted with .999 Find Silver using traditional cloisonné techniques. The wires which outline the cells for the enamel are hand bent and attached to the dial. Each cell is filled with vitreous (grand feu) enamel from Japan and fired multiple times in the kiln at about 1400 degrees Fahrenheit.

The watch case is made in Stainless Steel by Celeste Watch Company who has been an ambassador for art watches in the United States. 

The watch features a Swiss Made Quartz Movement.

Making Cloisonné Dials

Cloisonné dials begin with a pure silver dial blank to which a thin layer of clear enamel is applied.

A design is sketched on the blank and thin silver wires are formed to create cells or "cloisons" in which the enamel can be applied. Each silver wire is only 0.08mm thick and are bent by hand to create the design.

Applying the Enamel

Finely ground enamel is washed and mixed with water so that it can be applied to the dial using a fine brush.

The cells are filled with various colors to create shading, gradations, and to bring the image to life.

Firing the enamel

The enamel is built up layer upon layer. Each layer is fired at about 1400 degrees Fahrenheit in the kiln. The enamel grains melt creating a smooth surface that is fused to the silver dial blank.
