The stunning Artist’s Collection watches, part of the classic Sirius line are crafted to the highest qualitative and aesthetic standards, these masterpieces unite the traditional crafts of guilloché, enamelling and skeletonizing. Siruis Artist was launched in 2013 with great success.
Now, Chronoswiss is presenting an extensive collection of models all created in the brand’s in-house studio. Pure white (opaque) enamel dials are being reintroduced for the first time in 2014, similar to those previously seen on the 1990s Orea model.
The difference is that they are now produced in Chronoswiss’s own in-house dial factory. The models are also not printed with pristine snow white, they are appliquéd and the tiny holes used for fixing must be drilled extremely carefully.
New colours and patterns bring even more variety. This model with a surprising two-tone dial: White on the inside and brilliant royal blue on the outside – one can still admire the beautiful guilloché details on the sterling silver dial through the transparent enamel.
The blue ring is not fired separately and subsequently inserted; the dial was fired as a whole. This process of simultaneously firing different coloured areas on one dial requires extraordinary fingertip sensitivity.
A medium size is also new, as the Sirius Artist is being launched in a 34 mm case alongside the Sirius Automatic – matching artistic craftsmanship.
