The new Etrusca watch by Matthia’s & Claire alliances both the watchmaking and jewellery-making talent. The gemset yellow gold model enriching the existing jewellery collection refers to an historical period known for its magnificent goldsmithing: the Etruscan civilisation of which the Ticino-based brand reproduces the distinctive granulation technique. This consists of adorning the surface to be decorated with thousands of tiny gold granules and of fixing them to the piece of jewellery by soldering, yet without modifying their finesse.
The bezel and bracelet links display this 7th century B.C. expertise now interpreted in a timepiece. The watch houses an ETA quartz movement for driving hour and minute functions.
