The modernism of this clock starts with the etching of the ceramic using a special 5-axis laser that ensures the accuracy and the shape of the cavity. The openings are filled with exclusive Liquidmetal alloy platinum whose excess is removed before polishing of the workpiece. The diamonds are then set into the PT850 alloy using the traditional technique of embedding diamonds. The diamonds (diamonds 113 for a total of 2.69 carats) are then embedded in the alloy PT850 using their traditional technique of embedding. The diamonds are positioned either along the sloping edges of the platinum case, polished and brushed is on the glossy black ceramic bezel where you can admire 12 baguette-cut diamonds on the scale trapezoidal GMT and a brilliant cut diamond in the triangle hours to 12/24.
