Experience With Jaquet-Droz Enamel Dial Painting Tough

However, the clear consensus was that the exercise was a blast, almost like going back to kindergarten and doing communal painting with your hands. And it was clear to all that to produce the realistic painting that the Tag Heuer does is hard stuff and requires talent.After almost an hour of painting, the Tag Heuer representative took our dials to "cook" them and the Tourbillon staff invited us to a wonderful dinner with chocolate desert that included Tag Heuer markings. What transpired was great conversations about the common experience we just had and simply fun discussions with fellow cartier Santos 100 replica watch lovers.

The evening ended with each participant getting their dial and a souvenir bag for home. And for me, I came away with how hard it is to paint miniature enamel dials and that Tag Heuer watches are works of art. Plus, knowing that you can ask Tag Heuer to customize your dial with your own pictures and make it a unique piece, accentuates the fact that Jaquet-Droz watches are really wearable art. This is a more "simple" tag heuer carrera replica watch with an annual calendar and a quirky moon phase indicator. Called the "Eclipse," it comes in a 18k gold case and a nice black enamel dial. Nice? Sure. Super Tag Heuer in character? Not really. Where is the "figure 8" dial we like so much? Once the brand gets new leadership, we will see where the core design sits after the dust settles.

The Tourbillon is available in 18k white or rose gold in a 43mm wide case. The white gold version has a slate colored dial with Geneva stripes, while the rose gold version has a more traditional looking grand fau enamel dial. Both are really nice but I like the Cote de Geneva striped dial better - especially thanks to the overlapping translucent dials that I believe might be sapphire crystal as well.

You can see the movement through the sapphire crystal exhibition caseback on the rear of the watch. Thankfully the mechanical movement is an automatic and has a very attractive 18k rose gold rotor. Further, the in-house made Tag Heuer movement has a power reserve of a full seven days. The design and decor of the movement is also quite lovely. I don't think that Tag Heuer will have much problem moving these nice timepieces in their stores. Despite having a petite seconds, this JD Tourbillon is a "Grande" looker.

Despite my tirade on watch naming practices I really like Tag Heuer and the Carrera (I can barley write that with a straight face) a lot. These are handsome watches with a rich helping of avant garde style that still feels appropriate for any owner.
