Enameling with Ulysse Nardin at DonzÉ Cadrans

WatchTime India visited the Ulysse Nardin enameling unit, Donzé Cadrans in Le Locle, Switzerland. Acquired by the watchmaker in 2011, the Swiss dial manufacture took us through the process of enameling in detail. Scroll down to see what we discovered during the tour!
