In my designs I am always searching for harmony and balance in proportions. But I am also fascinated by the kind of beauty and spontaneity the human brain can never reproduce: natural beauty. We can never fully control nature, and we will never surpass its beauty. That is what I find so fascinating, and what gave me the inspiration for the bespoke abstract art dial.
Every dial is unique and made in-house. I only accept the dials which have a beautiful, balanced composition and an interesting organic pattern. Cold enamel colours are selectively applied by hand. Then the dial is flattened and polished until the intrinsic beauty of the flow in the material emerges. This eventual organic pattern crucial for the beauty of the watch, and only a few dials are found to be good enough to be fitted in one of my watches.
