Master Ultra Thin Squelette skeleton watch and enamel craftsmanship
   Enamel craftsmanship is a veritable art. The enamel is roasted in a fire and presents a unique sense of depth. Applying enamel technology to Master Ultra Thin Squelette skeleton watch Beauty is undoubtedly an immortal achievement. The white or rose gold used to make the case is first carved with a guilloche pattern, which echoes the overall design of the watch. Subsequently, the master craftsman colored the dial with enamel pigment and repeatedly baked it in the furnace until the desired color tone was displayed. The strong dark blue tone complements the white gold, while the bright light brown echoes the rose gold case. The back of the Master Ultra Thin Squelette skeleton watch is also decorated with enamel to reproduce the sequence design of the time zone display, forming a mirror image with the dial, full of dynamics. These two new products are limited to 100 pieces each, which reflects the style of contemporary and bold and confident.
