Giving the classic black/white and brown/grey colours a break, this particular timepiece is set with a galvanised rose opaline dial with blue appliques and pear-shaped blued hands. The dial is specially decorated with the help of an elaborate and complicated process that involves a number of steps, hence giving its a unique silken hue that is rare to find in any other watch dial.
