This dial was inspired by a trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The font for the numbers was inspired by Charles Demuth's I Saw the Figure 5 in Gold. I was impressed by how the number dominated the work of art and the Art Deco font. I sat down and sketched this dial with excessively large numbers immediately.  The dial is handcrafted with .999 Fine Silver and 24K gold wire 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 the Cincinnati Watch Company. 

The watch features a Swiss Made Automatic 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.
