Enamel Craft: Precious Art Continued for Centuries
The enamel material was discovered for the first time on the warm coasts of the Mediterranean. It is a mineral belonging to the same family of crystals. Since the ancient century, enamel has been used in the design and production of jewelry and other decorations before the enamel technology was popular in Europe. In the beginning, only goldsmiths and jewelers used enamel to create. It was not until the 15th century that watchmakers began to use it in watchmaking. It also became an art in the watchmaking field that did not fade away with time.
In Geneva, Switzerland, local artists decorated dials, cases, etc. with enamel, and gradually became experts in the use of enamel technology in the field of watchmaking. Piaget has always adhered to the important value of the tradition of craftsmanship, so it was decided to revive this unique enamel process and make it one of the important technologies in the watch factory, which is also a rare process technology in many watch factories for centuries. As Philippe Leopold-Metzger, Earl of PIAGET, said: ‘The art of enamel has become an old fountain created by Earl of PIAGET.’ This is why the Earl of Piaget chose to use a variety of exquisite enamel painting techniques to create a variety of unique enamel painting techniques worldwide. The limited-edition painted watch presents the beauty and elegance that only enamel painting can achieve.
