South Korean Haute-horlogerie atelier MOI Watch presents a unique timepiece inspired by the biblical story of David and Goliath. Crafted from mother-of-pearl, its uniquely designed dial represents the Goliath's skull, featuring a hole on the forehead struck by the stone.
The Goliath dial is manufactured by a master artisan utilising Korean Ott-Chil technology using the finest mother of pearl. Na Jeon Chil Gee technology is a very complex and sensitive technology to produce, to complete the production, it has to be painted on and dehydrated numerous times and can only be done by a skilled master artisan.

Especially, the mother of pearl of Goliath skull with a hole is 0.25mm in thickness. It has to be sliced with a fretsaw very precisely with no mistake. Also, the back of the dial is covered with Ott-Chil, it can be seen through the back sapphire glass and the harmony of the pitch black ott-chil dial and the skeletal movement is easily breathtaking.
Inside the stainless steel case of the watch you can find a hand-wound mechanical movement that powers hour and minute indication. The MOI Watch ‘GOLIATH’ is offered with an option of either ETA 6497 (Swiss Made) or PTS 9211 (Manufactured by China/Hong Kong based PTS Resources Ltd) mechanical manual winding movement.
