A guilloché pattern with a difference, this one is straight out of the Wessex design book!
Inspired by early English and Celtic art, this dial combines them both. The main dial was designed in a similar way to the 'barley corn' guilloché pattern, but rather than engraving the lines we have reversed the pattern and relief engraved whilst weaving the lines in the Celtic, interwoven style.
The inner dial has the Wessex logo words 'Consilium in Tempore' (Design in Time) engraved around the centre.
The dial index is relief engraved with roman numerals and features Saxon shield knots and Celtic triskellions between the numerals.
The seconds sub-dial, again relief engraved, features the Wessex Watches 'cross flory' at the centre.
Guilloché is traditionally produced by engraving the pattern on the dial with a hand turned Rose Engine lathe, also known as a guilloché lathe; or if budget is not a constraint, hand-engraved. Both arts are time consuming and are only found on watches costing many thousands of pounds.
Many reasonably priced watches feature patterns the makers refer to as guilloché, but the dials are mass produced with the patterns machine stamped before the pad printing stage.
We at Wessex have developed our own methods of micro-engraving dials allowing us to produce not only traditional guilloché patterns, but countless different patterns also. Each one of our dials is handmade to order so the possibilities for customisation are endless!
In common with all Wessex timepieces the watches features:
- Hand-crafted relief engraved 925 silver dial
- High quality Swiss mechanical movement
- Precision CNC milled 316L stainless steel case
- Hand-crafted premium leather strap
Each of our watches is assembled, regulated and tested by us at Wessex.
