ZANNETTI Piranha Collection

Italian Jewellery and Luxury watch designer Zannetti unveils the Piranha Collection, which offers significant, aggressive and professional grade diving watches.  Named after the world’s most aggressive fish, the Piranha diving timepiece wraps around the wrist and transforms itself into a perfect companion during dives down to considerable depths; specialists will no doubt appreciate the automatic helium valve, a distinguishing mark common to all the top diving watches. But it is with the dial that the Piranha shows off its most exciting features. Zannetti has transformed a drawing he has produced into a precious polychrome champlevé decoration based on various marine shades of blue.

Champlevé is an enamelling technique in which cells are carved with a chisel on the metal plate (dial), and filled with vitreous enamel. The piece is then fired until the enamel melts, and when once cooled the surface of the object is polished. Enamel is a vitreous material composed of silica, feldspar, kaolin and metal oxides, in the form of crystals. These metal oxides are either naturally occurring or added by a master artisan, and they are what give enamels their infinite variety of colors. The mixture is then vitrified at very high temperature.
