Description

LIMITED EDITION (not numbered) TO 20 PIECES ONLY WORLDWIDE. Available as part of a 3 piece set only.
The Métiers d'Art - La Symbolique Des Laques collection is devoted to the natural beauty of the seasons. For each model in the collection a front & back dial is created. The workmanship to create these dial took a total of more than 7 years! • MAKI-E: Masters of Zôhiko are experts in the art of "maki-e" style enamel painting. "Maki-e" in Japanese means "filled up the picture." This style of enamel painting features the most complex techniques of decorative lacquering. The art begins while paint (usually black in color) has not yet congealed, which is then sprinkled with gold or silver powder to create unique designs. The final lacquered coating is made from the sap of what is known as the Chines Lacquer tree, Rhus Verniciflua, which is found is in the highlands of central Asia and parts of Tibet.
• TSUKIMI - AUTUMN:The evening of contemplation of the full moon – or “Tsukimi” – honors the first full moon of autumn. This custom, with Chinese origins, was introduced in Japan during the Heian era (794– 1185). At the time, the nobles of the Imperial Court got together in the moonlight to compose poems and listen to music. The contemplation of the full moon in September became a popular practice during the Edo era (1603–1868) and peasants included it in their rites to mark the end of the harvest.
• The front dial is decorated with a full moon hidden by a few clouds which is considered to be the height of refinement and elegance in Japanese culture.
• The dial on the back of the watch is decorated with Japanese maples dressed in a bright red autumn robe side by side with a Torii Gate, commonly built at the entrance to Shintoist sanctuaries in order to separate the sacred area from the wicked environment, a reminder of the extent to which the Japanese people remain attached to their traditions.
