When it comes to enamel, because of its beauty and long-lasting color, it is always so fascinating. Enamel has been known in the ancient civilizations of Mesopotamia, Armenia, China and Egypt. In the late Middle Ages, first byzantine and then germany, enamel became an important part of the decoration of jewelry, precious decorative items and religious items. During the 14th century, the artists who contributed most to this long artistic development were from the cities of Limoges and Florence. In the late Renaissance came from Blois and Paris, and from the late 17th century to Geneva. In the late 1940s, it was rediscovered by some of the most important and well-known Swiss watch manufacturers, such as Rolex, Vacheron Constantin, and of course Patek Philippe. However, it is rarely used. The first watch model with an enamel dial appeared after the Second World War. At that time, some artists such as Carlo Poluzzi (1899-1978) tried to revive the enamel art in Geneva, which has a history of 300 years. By the way, most people who are concerned about the watch industry know that the current enamel has ushered in the era of Anita, and many of the top enamel watches from Patek Philippe, Hermès, Piaget and so on are from her hands. Anita’s full name is Anita Porchet, her master is the famous Suzanne Rohr, and her master is Carlo Poluzzi.
Patek Philippe was interested in the enamel dial in the mid 1940s, its famous ‘world time’, model Ref. 1415, and during the 1950s using the model Ref. 2523, the center part of the dial was coated with enamel. With the exception of a few, these dials are manufactured by Stern or Beyeler in Geneva. The first customer was King Faruk of Egypt. In 1949, he customized two rectangular watches, gold material, model Ref.1593, featuring the map of Egypt, including the two cities of Sinai, the Red Sea, Cairo and Luxor. Use two small diamonds as your logo. He made a piece for himself and another for his minister. The enamel dial was then made into political figures, or maps of continents, most commonly mounted on Ref. 2481. These watches are part of the history of modern decorative arts, and the splendid traditional arts are now fortunately preserved.
