Michael Graves designed the Scallop Watch in 2013 and it has taken more than three years to come to market, due to technical challenges that had to be overcome in order to achieve its original design intent. The Guilloche dial engraving technique has been found in fine jewelry and on Faberge eggs since the 17th century. It has been utilized here to express the full vision and richness of this quality-made timepiece. With its symmetrical rigor and shell-like geometry, the Scallop Watch is sure to become a highly sought after design icon. The guilloche effect on the dial is created by first laying a fine film of the guilloche pattern over the dial of the watch. An acid wash is then painted over the voided areas without the guilloche pattern. These areas treated by the wash are etched away into a 0.1mm deep pattern. The Scallop rose gold dial is then colored utilizing an ionic electro-plating process.
Made in China.
