MORE THAN 1000 HOURS FOR THE DIAL !
This unique timepiece is the result of a collaboration between Kari Voutilainen & Unryuan studios in Japan.
The manual winding mechanical movement is stunning and very well finished. The aesthetic is classical and quite « pure » in the sense that there are only 3 hands (hour, minutes, seconds).
Adding such amazing work on the dial makes it magical and intriguing! You might imagine the patience and perseverance required to create such pattern and it actually took more than 1000 hours to produce the front and the back decoration. The look of all different colors is wonderful! The materials used are : Kinpun (gold dust), Jyunkin-itakane (gold leaf), Yakou-gai (shell of great green turban) and Awabi-gai (abalone shell from New Zealand).
A true piece of Art combined with a beautiful mechanical movement!
