Carving movement means carving as much as possible the bridges and other components of the movement without spoiling their functions and leaving only its skeleton. Carving movement requires a calm mind and exquisite technique. Any lapse will cause the previous hard work go down the drain. So each product is embodied with the painstaking efforts of the watchmakers. It is as if they are tending a new born baby scrupulously with all their concentration. Upon completion of carving, the watchmakers will polish the skeleton, and further engrave it with decorative strips. Polish and engraving procedures require real technical skills, craftsmanship and a great deal of time. The work is often accomplished with the help of a magnifier.
