Honeycomb Weave

Price excludes VAT. If you are buying in the EU, VAT will be added at the checkout.

One of our many new guilloché patterns, the Honeycomb Lattice is a Wessex unique pattern.

 

The pattern is based on the multi-celled joined hexagon shapes of a honeycomb; each cell has been given 3 walls effectively creating a 5 walled cell when joined. The pattern has then been overlayed onto itself and shifted horizontally and vertically by ½ a cell before applying the 'impossible' weave to form the final lattice. We find the resulting pattern intruiging!

 

Guilloché (a finely engraved, repeating pattern) 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, taking the art to a completely new level. 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.
