Affordable Hand-Painted Enamel Dials

Postby koimaster » June 23rd 2017, 8:48am

Watches with hand-painted enamel dials are among the most costly items in the watchmaking world, largely thanks to their difficult production. Ématelier, the brainchild of passionate watch collector and businessman Alex Landa, is a new company that’s managed to revamp the manufacturing process and create pieces whose quality is on a par with elite brands at a fraction of the conventional price.

Established watchmakers like Patek Philippe, Van Cleef & Arpels, Vacheron Constantin and others have unbeatable access to artists, distribution networks, and big marketing budgets, but Ématelier has an edge. Alex broke down and reorganized the manufacturing method, significantly cutting the cost of production without compromising an iota of quality. The result is a collection of stunning enameled wrist watches at unheard-of prices for pieces of this caliber. Here is how he did it.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
