Blink of an eye! However, Innever got a reply from VC on how the dial could patina
thenks for the shots
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.
oxydize. This is mysterious part!
The certificate I have says "Silvered guilloché decoration".
The hands and numerals are 18k gold.
where is the bug
- certificate ?
- dial ?
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.
of a chrono I have seen quite recently
One seems to be in the process to adapt to the other ...
Have a very nice weekend,
As Alex said, if only I had the funds...
Thanks Liger, with those pics you've made my day!
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 day.
