HAND PAINTED ENAMEL DIAL: Miniature painting on enamel, an extraordinary amalgam of science and
fine art is unforgiving work. No matter how great the skill of the
artisan, the medium is temperamental and can be corrupted at any stage
of production. Lastly, the dial undergoes the Geneva Technique. Here, a finished painting is coated with
transparent enamel two to three times, and fired in the kiln in between
coats. This sets the painting, provides a smooth surface, enhances the depth and vividness of the colors.
