Enamel 40

Approximate Epoch 1660 - 1880

Available in three sizes - 40 mm, 43 mm or 45 mm

Enamel is a glass-hard protective layer that is fired onto metal surfaces. This process - carried out in the furnace - is very complex and expensive. The material has to go through countless work steps until the finished end product. Enamel is temperature and acid resistant. The very smooth surface prevents the dial from rusting and is also very resistant to scratches, dust or dirt. The print on the dial is partially or entirely applied by hand and then subsequently baked. You can even wipe these dials with a wet cloth without damaging them. Enamel dials often last for many centuries and can be refurbished very well - an indispensable detail for a high-quality watch that you want to wear for many decades and then pass on to others. Between 1660 - 1880 the dials of high-quality pocket watches were made exclusively of enamel. Later, for cost reasons, metal or brass dials were also used. Today, dials are almost exclusively made of brass, or very rarely of silver. Unfortunately, enamel dials are currently only made by hand by special manufacturers and a single dial can sometimes cost 5,000 euros.

 

Another special feature of the enamel leaves is the milky-white colour, which is reminiscent of ivory and therefore looks very classy. In order to be able to offer such beautiful watches at affordable prices, we use lacquered dials. The basic material of the dials is made of high-quality 925/000 sterling silver. A wafer-thin, enamelled layer is applied on top of this. Thanks to this process, these high-gloss lacquered dials look amazingly similar to real enamel and are almost as durable. These high-quality dials are manufactured in a German dial manufactory especially for Tourby according to the strictest specifications. Our dial manufacturer works with the pad printing process, which guarantees perfect printing.

Live Pictures

Why do we also use Live Pictures? Even if it looks less professional on a official website, you can only see the quality of the watches from such photos. All watches look great on official product images. Even the cheap ones. But in order to get an accurate feeling of the watches, you have to hold them in your hand. These often have a completely different effect. However, since our customers mostly order online and cannot view the watches beforehand, our pictures must be as authentic as possible.

The movement is available in two levels of refinement (please click on the following links for more informations about these movements):

 

Premium from 2,225.00 Euro

Top Grade from 2,875.00 Euro
