Le Cadran


Filling up a niche in the horological literature this book, dedicated to the dial of wristwatches in the 20th century, reveals the remarkable history of the famous Geneva dial maker Stern. On 392 pages with more than 600 illustrations this reference book offers a deep look at the different methods of dial making, from simple silver decoration with printed hour markers to complex and unique cloisonné-champlevé enamel dials. Furthermore a selection of dials from iconic vintage watches are fully analysed in a separate chapter.
