Dragon, the beginning of all things
The Chinese dragon is very different from the image of evil animals in Western mythology. It represents positive natural energy and noble virtue in human wisdom. The dragon, as one of the oldest and most admirable symbols in China, naturally contains a variety of meanings. In the subsequent Chinese history, the dragon also symbolized the positive force inherited from God, the people of Zepi, the messengers who brought good fortune. Today, the dragon still represents the virtues of the ruler’s leadership, wisdom and kindness, and the power to promote the spirit of harmony, and it is the core of the philosophy of Chinese culture. The image of the ‘Dragon’ has been tempered by Chinese culture for more than 5,000 years. Today, the Chinese nation still proudly claims to be ‘the successor of the dragon.’

Filled enamel (CHAMPLEVÉ)
When the champlevé technique is used, the pattern to be filled with enamel is first engraved on the carcass to form a recessed grid, and then the enamel is filled with a fine brush, and then multiple firing processes are performed. The gold carver engraved the carcass of the case or dial according to the design, leaving the outline of the pattern as a male pattern (protruding lines), the hollowed out groove (yin pattern), and then filling it with enamel glaze and negative The part is called taille d’épargne in French. Its edges must be as clear as possible. The gold sculptor must determine the depth and width of these shades according to the effect they intend to show. It is then heated to over 800 ° C to allow the enamel to melt; this method also requires multiple firings until the final flattening and sintering of bright surfaces. The gold sculptor and the enamelist must work closely and be highly creative, because the techniques of the two craftsmen have equally great influence on the work, especially when the transparent enamel technique is used. Glyphs appeared. At Piaget, the masters of gold carving and enamel go one step further and maintain close cooperation throughout the process, making sure that all the filled enamels from Piaget are perfect.
