Hand engraving is extremely complex and needs a steady and patient hand. For highly complicated engraved dials the engraver often working 8 hours a day can take several weeks. Anyone who has ever watched an engraver at work can understand why these masters are almost extinct today. You do not only need just a steady hand but also a lot of kill and patience. A single line must be run several times in order to reach the necessary depth. Before you can begin the engraving there is many hours work. The engraving piece is cut from a solid silver handle a dial. The dial must be exactly the correct milimeter in diameter and thickness. Then the dial feet are soldered on. A tiny millimeter can dictate whether the dial fits or not. The desired engraving is sketched on the dial before the engraver starts their work. One wrong stroke can lead to hours or days of work being wasted. Any major error or slippage from the engraver and they have to start all over. After engraving for hours, days, weeks and sometimes even months to, this dial still has to be refinished. Once movements are engraved they must be re-plated. The cost of watches that are fully hand engraved can be on the market often over € 50,000.00 and up. Even the smaller companies demand such watches from at least € 12,000.00 and upwards.
