Jubile 1755 in Pt with "aged" dial with SALMON patina


I was quite surprised to discover how the dial of this model have homogeneously moved to light salmon coloration.

I supposed it is UNIQUE. 

Let see by yourself:

If you want to see it in the flesh or if you are interested in, just pm me.

I wish you a nice week-end.

Presumably, the dial is silver. It can oxidize and develop a copper-like patina when exposed to the air over a long period.

In such a case the oxidation is usually removed easily with a silver cleaner.

I hope this is not the case here since it would be a real shame to pay big dollars for such a dial.

The dial is in fact platinum so shouldn't

the dial was subject to an èpargne process where "silvered" stands for the work done to create color variations (or better, nuances) on it?

Of course, layers would be used, along with the guillochage works, to reach that purpose.

I'm very curious to know as, it's clear, I'm delighted by these works and I concur with Alex, platinum doesn't oxidize.

A layer over the metal can lead to that result.

This is beautiful companion

Thanks François for your kind message. 

This watch is incredible in real. A pleasure to see it, to put on my wrist and having chance to take some photos. Salmon coloration varies with light exposure.

Have a nice daycool.
