mesmerized by the artisanal dials which were collaborations between THE Anita Porchet (enamel) and Dick Steenman (engraver) and an engraved dial by Dick.

The dials are too ornate for my taste, but others may feel differently.

What do you think about these watches ?

Below are photos I took of the watches and online brochures along with the stats for the rose watches.

Actually, if they used the same skills to make a dial in the form of an elaborate cold cuts tray (which is what I took the flowered one for originally), I'll bet it would have a great market.

Right, it looks like a

Beautiful, and I appreciate the dedication, but I agree it’s a bit ornate for my taste as well.

These are extraordinarily detailed as pieces of art and very interesting to look at indeed. They would suit the tastes of many ladies, I agree. And so, moving on, what ever happened with trying on the Polo? Did you see one, try on one, buy one??

These artisanal dials occupied the whole session 🀣
