Revolution (Hong Kong) - - WATCH CULTURE -

Ulysse Nardin takes an ap­proach that is per­haps in­spired by the fact that this is the year of the Fire Rooster. There is no deny­ing the panache and en­ergy dis­played on the dial, which is crafted with an enamel cham­plevé tech­nique, whereby the rooster mo­tif is carved out, then filled with enamel. Af­ter the dial is fired, setting the enamel, the ar­ti­san then goes to work with a chisel on the re­main­ing metal parts, which gives the dial a life of its own and a fiery back­ground for the rooster to shine on.
