Looking for a truly exceptional watch? Welcome to the world of the rare artistic craft which has never been seen in a wrist watch before.
Although «The Great Wave off Kanagawa» is a traditional Japanese art piece, you won’t find any geishas and samurais there. Instead there is a giant wave and small fishermen confronting the power of nature.
Surprisingly, the main character of this picture is not a man, but the sea itself. The top of the wave is like a form of yang opposing to an empty space – yin. Seems like disaster is inevitable, but the holy Fuji mountain in the background gives us hope for the best.
For many centuries the art of pietre dure or Florentine mosaics was affordable only for the high society. Among its passionate admirers were Charles III of Spain, Emperor Rudolf II of Austria, the house of Medici, cardinal Mazarin and Louis XIV of France – the most prominent representatives of their time. Michelangelo called Florentine mosaics as «true painting for eternity».
Even today, travelling through Europe, you can appreciate the Florentine mosaics made for centuries ago, because the great thing about mosaics is that it is truly timeless. Assembled from numerous pieces of marble and semi-precious stones, these mosaics will never fade, loose their luster or peel off. And so are the mosaics in NAMFLEG watches.
Using the world-unique technology of hardstone-carving, NAMFLEG artisans carve thinnest veneers out of onyx, jasper, quartz, crystal, violane, heliotrope, mother-of-pearl, malachite, charoite, labradorite, kaholong, lapis lazuli, coral, marble and many other natural stones.
The reason for strikingly realistic effect of NAMFLEG dials is meticulous selection of stones for each watch. Artisan pays attention not only to the stone’s color, but also to its organic pattern. After many hours of high-skilled manual labor the stone veneers are seamlessly fit together, forming genuine «paintings in stone».
Alluring and mysterious, dials made from Florentine mosaics are eternity itself, embodied in the beauty of gemstones.
