The Horological Brothers, Bart and Tim Grönefeld announce bespoke dials and a new case material for their award winning Grönefeld 1941 Remontoire timepiece. Netherlands based Grönefeld brothers have partnered with renowned master watchmaker Kari Voutilainen to realise these new editions of high-end, technical timepieces under 1941 Remontoire line.
Grönefeld is able to offer a vast choice of coloured and patterned dials. The dials are engine-turned, sometimes referred to as guilloché dials. This process confers each dial with its own unique appearance. To augment the allure of the engine-turned patterns, another even more exclusive technique can be applied, enamelling. The colourful and transparent enamel is applied to the dial surface to bestow a profound depth and lustre to the guilloché patterns.
Because enamel is glass, not paint, it does not fade under ultraviolet light and will keep its lustre for years, decades or even centuries to come. Specialist Inès Hamaguchi is responsible for the delicate enamelling of the Grönefeld dials.
