Now everyone is no stranger to the material ‘enamel’. In addition to artwork, more and more brands are trying enamel in the creation of jewelry and watches. ‘Enamel’ is called ‘enamel’ in English. It is said that the two Chinese words originated from the pronunciation of the ancient Chinese name ‘fu’ in western China, and also because it originated from Persia.
Enamel watches are often expensive, because this craft needs to master the fire just right and the craftsmen themselves have extremely high skills and rich experience. For the industry and senior watch fans, if you see a watch’s dial is very shiny, but not colored, it is likely that it is a plain enamel dial. Many brands now use the ‘big fire enamel’, a process that doubles the value of watches because it is rare. It is painted in the same enamel several times during the firing process and then fired and cooled. It must be repeated three times to truly reach the perfect standard. Plain enamel, a few small flaws are very obvious, especially black enamel, the yield is extremely low, the price is high and the quantity is small.
