It takes ofcourse a steady hand and in depth knowledge of drawing techniques.C?É¬¥tes de Gen?É¬®ve: Engraving shouldn replica omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Chr watches be confused for other techniques used to create nice decorative striping or stippling. The most famous decorative technique for watches, besides engraving, is probably Cotes de Geneve.
It is just a concession, and perhaps THE concession, you have to make when opting for a watch from a lower segment. This perhaps explains why there is so much price difference in an IWC Flieger chronograph that uses a modified ETA/Valjoux 7750 movement and a Sinn 356 Flieger.So, what kind of movement decoration is there? replica breitling Chronomat Chronograph watches Using the picture of an Audemars Piguet movement below, I will try to give some explanation on the techniques used: Engraving: As as it sounds, it isn t. Engraving is decoration done by either hand or machine, creating in relief or by hollowing, just like the family weapons and wording in the rotor of the AP movement as pictured above.
If you want to read more about movement decoration (since I haven t mentioned snailing, Perl?É¬©e or Engine Turning), I suggest you visit The Montres Suisses blog. Also, the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie has a great Fine Watch Glossary section.I hope that this at least will give a better understanding in why an ETA 2892-A2, Valjoux 7750, Soprod or other commodity -movement doesn t always have to be commodity.As you can see on the movement pictured replica breitling Digital Series watches above, the bridge and other middle parts are decorated by these regular parallel wave-like lines. This type of decoration is mostly used on the visible su ce of bridges and bars and should be impeccable.Stippling: I mentioned stippling already, and you probably guessed already by looking at the overlapping small circles on plate of the movement, just below the balance. Stippling (or spotting) is decoration that is quite expensive to have performed, since the circular-graining machines are still very rare and replica breitling Montbrilliant Datora watches expensive.
