LES CARPES DE SANDOZ - PARMIGIANI FLEURIER
TECNICA CARPES DE SANDOZ
The engraver works, cuts and models the material to breathe life into the decoration and produce the texture required to reflect the light of the enamel in all directions. The fish and foliage seem to quiver.

The enameller adds colour and delicately illuminates the subtle shades and transparencies present in nature. The rich harmonious colors are obtained using "grand feu" enamel.

The aquatic scene featured on the Tecnica 'Les Carpes de Sandoz' is not painted. It is the result of several oxides applied to the dial. The dial is then fired several times in an oven at a temperature of between 800 and 900°C to reveal the pattern and colors. Each firing brings out the different layers, and the effects of depth gradually bring the dial to life by adding energy and relief. Only "grand feu" enamel can produce such refined decoration. The golden carp are appliques, and have been sculpted in tribute to Edouard Marcel Sandoz. With their brilliant scales and near-transparent fins, they almost appear to leap from the dial.
