The Métiers D’Art timepieces are truly works of art that demonstrate the talent and outstanding expertise of the company’s master craftsmen over the generations. At the exact watershed between style and technical expertise, the Métiers d’Art Élégance Sartoriale sets the stage for the fine art of savvy dressing. Like Fine Watchmaking, tailoring is an art mingling extreme refinement with carefully chosen materials and highly accurate gestures. The term “sartorialism” refers to the refined masculine wardrobe as epitomised by the ageless male stars of the Hollywood golden era. Through a subtle combination of crafts, the dials reproduce an authentic “colour chart” of fabrics stemming from the masculine era. The master guillocheur manually recreates the structure of the fabrics by creating a finely gadrooned pattern around the rim of the dial, much like a hem. This moon crescent-shaped space is coated with translucent Grand Feu enamel by the master enameller, who seeks the exact shade while being careful to maintain a transparent, shiny and smoothly uniform appearance. Finally, a gold subdial is adorned with a tapestry-like motif which, depending on the version, picks up Paisley type, floral or geometrical tie or pocket square patterns. Caliber 1400, a mechanical manual-winding movement, powers the five models in this collection bearing the Hallmark of Geneva.
