The refinement and refinement of Patek Philippe Replica is based on respect for tradition and culture of excellence, in which handwork is a key element. The appearance of a watch depends largely on the dial, in fact, the dial is often underestimated this element, only by hand to truly reflect its value. For Patek Philippe watches, finishing quality is crucial, automation and standardization technology can not match. No matter what kind of dial material, only rely on a series of manual skills, to achieve the best aesthetic results.
Dial is not only a single object, but also the micro-world, the disk effect is determined by the application of specific technology. Even a seemingly unpretentious look requires expertise and craftsmanship, made by experienced artisans. Take Ref. 5235 as an example, its appearance is unusual in Patek Philippe watches. The body dial is satin-finished, just like the movement elements, although the surface area is much larger. The outer ring is milky white, the sub-dial is decorated with snail patterns, the hour-markers and minute tracks are fixed by transfer, and the week, month and date windows are chamfered and polished.
Nautilus watch dial is also true. The unique dial of this watch, embossed with Stamping horizontal embossed patterns. Nautilus Series 40th anniversary of the birth of the occasion, Patek Philippe produced a limited edition watch, gold blue dial inlaid rectangular diamond cutting, diamond inlaid, which can only be done by hand.
Take the blanking operation, although completed by the machine, but must be guided by manpower. Shape the dial shape, the central hole and the window, polished brass floor, welding the bottom fixed dial, ready for the follow-up process. Ref. 5275 The Time Lapse Hour Watch is a process analogous to polish, dotting minute circles and transcribing Arabic numerals.
Human involvement is a key element for all dials made of precious materials and technical craftsmanship. A notch higher than the blanking is Guilloché – geometric patterns engraved into the dial with a noticeable solid thickness. Although the operation is done by the machine, the rose bed is not driven by electricity nor does it work automatically, but rather with the hand-eye coordination of the artisans, providing motivation and guidance. The dial can then be varnished, inlaid and transfer finished.
The metal plate is pre-micro-pierced to become a dial that can be set with precious stones, and the inlay itself is done by hand. Craftsmen put each precious gem into the base, and then carefully enclose the surrounding metal ring – the gemstone may weigh only a few carats, less than a millimeter in diameter. In addition to gems, gold is also fixed on the dial time scale.
Patek Philippe is one of the few watchmakers that has never stopped making enamel dials using the most traditional techniques. Whether filigree, fill, inlay or micro-painted; single tone or colorful, Patek Philippe can fully grasp. And these technologies are highly specialized and without them a series of very elaborate manual operations, these enamel processes are simply impossible to reproduce. Make a backup dial, demarcate the color area, fill in the right amount of powder, and repeat the kiln calcination, which requires the human eye to examine the entire surface at each stage, predict the color change of the enamel, predict the finished color, and ensure that there is no slightest flaw.
