Enamel is our true passion. By marrying translucent enamel with guilloché, we show bird feathers, fish scales and flower petal veins – on unsurpassed level of realism.
Koi is a Japanese word for Carp. Japanese people have, for years, used Koi fish drawings, pictures and tattoo designs as a cultural symbol for overcoming adversity. Stories are told of how they climb waterfalls that have strong currents. It is said that if Koi was determined to reach the top of the waterfall so it persevered and succeeded.
The Chinese have their own version that says that Koi swam against the current of the yellow river to reach the Dragon gate and when they reached the Dragon gate they turned into a dragon. Today these legends inspire many people who have gone through adversity to get Koi fish designs on our dials. Such people use this symbol as a reminder of the luck or the bravery that helped them succeed or overcome an obstacle.
The romantic KOI (inspiring carps) dials filled with symbols of love, affection and good luck are framed by high grade polished and PVD-coated bezel while crown is adorned with a semi transparent moonstone imitation cabochon.
Without delicate pattern «guilloché», engraved on the dial, watches would be just another soulless machine made of cold and lifeless metal. What time is it? You can easily answer this question by glancing at you smart phone, notebook or even microwave oven in the kitchen. But it’s much more enjoyable to look at hand-guillochéd and hand-enamelled dial of the NAMFLEG watch. Even if you have never asked yourself: why is it so alluring?
And it’s alluring indeed, because it’s not just a time-measuring gadget, but a piece of art, which was perfected by a whole team of watchmakers, engravers and enamellers.
Light plays on the hand-guillochéd dial making it gleam like a moonlight on ocean waves. This engraved pattern of refined wavy lines can be admired only when the watch is on the wrist. No picture can convey the stunning interplay of light and shadow.
The world-renown House of Fabergé reached the pinnacle of combing guilloche with art of enamel. NAMFLEG offers more: we combine it in wrist watches.
Hand-turned guilloche gives unsurpassed feeling of depth to the dial and vivid colors of translucent cloisonné enamel open the whole new world – multicolored, rich and joyful.
Following greatest traditions of House Fabergé, each our enamel dial was individually handcrafted – just as high jewelry art pieces, made by artisans hundred years ago.
