Collection Of Enamel Watches Have You Done Your Homework?

What kind of watch is worth collecting, there is no single answer to this question. Pay attention to the complicated and artistic craftsmanship on the dial … In fact, these can be regarded as different categories of collection, but if you are or intend to become a collector, you must know that understanding your collection is more important than the income brought by the collection. Because the former is good for the latter.

   Among the many watch collections, enamel watches have become increasingly popular at auction due to their shiny and colorful colors and complicated and difficult manufacturing processes. However, blindly following the trend is easy to ‘go out of the eye’ without understanding enamel, so before you start an enamel watch, you need to ask yourself, do you know how to appreciate the beauty of enamel watches and how to judge the value of enamel watches?

   Enamel watches, as the name suggests, are decorated with enamel craftsmanship, including both on the dial and on the movement. Compared with the decorative enamel technology, the mechanical properties of the watch itself are the basis of all added value. Therefore, the factors that determine the value of an enamel watch described below are based on the excellent mechanical properties of the watch itself. Above.

   The reason why enamel watches have a very high collection value is that on the one hand, there are very few masters who can make enamel watches with collection value, on the other hand, the number of enamel watches produced each year is very small. The enamel technology has been passed down to this day. Although it has maintained a high degree of popularity in the collection market, the craftsmanship behind it is another scene. Because the preparation and procedures of enamel craft materials are very complicated, it is extremely difficult; because of the low success rate of this process, craftsmen need to maintain a high degree of concentration and patience for a long time; the enamel craft on the dial also has vision With certain requirements. Looking around the world, there are only a handful of true enamel watchmakers. The vivid expression of each piece is closely related to the exquisite craftsmanship of the craftsman who made it. This manual skill cannot be replaced for the form of mechanized production, so it can not achieve mass production. The production time of an enamel watch ranges from at least months to many years. It is difficult to predict the launch time of new products, and each time it is launched, there are not many natural objects.

   Now that enamel watches have a very high collection value, isn’t it difficult for collectors to spend a lot of money on it? But before you spend a lot of money, you must do your homework. To judge the value of enamel on a watch, you must first understand the extremely complicated process of enamel. Enamel is a production process and a process of forming a stable glassy glaze coating on the metal surface after applying a silicate glaze on the metal surface and firing at high temperatures several times. Each step of the entire process is extremely important, any detail is ignored, and any slight deviation is enough to make the entire work a success.

   Under what circumstances will all efforts be discarded, and the finished enamel dial will become a ‘discarded disc’? Identifying the ‘waste disc’ is the first point to judge whether an enamel watch is worth collecting. The enamel dial with flaws such as dust, air bubbles, pattern movement, and glaze inconsistency is a ‘discarded disc’. It may sound easy to distinguish, but in fact, the ‘discarded disc’ is almost worthless to a layman. Works the same. The main component of the enamel glaze is glassy mineral. After firing, it can form a gem-like luster. When combined with the underlying metal, it will form refraction or scattering under the light, and it will have different changes when viewed from different angles. It is at this point that tiny flaws will be hidden from the eyes of laymen.

   This can also be said to be a matter of quality. Good looks are the value of any collectible, and enamel watches are no exception. The older the antique enamel watch is, the more likely it is to have flaws. The flaw here is not only the flaw of the enamel dial of the watch, but also the degree of damage existing in the entire watch itself. Judging the enamel watch’s appearance is the same as judging the ‘waste disc’, and it is necessary to change the angle carefully and carefully, and it is not limited to the dial.

   The second point is the process, which also includes two aspects. On the one hand, it is to see which enamel technology is used on the watch’s enamel plate. Among the filigree enamel, filled enamel, hollow enamel, and micro-painted enamel, the micro-painted enamel technology is the most difficult. The collection value of enamel watches and the degree of craftsmanship are directly proportional to a certain extent. At the same time, it should be judged by the design and processing of themes, patterns, colors, and picture levels. On the other hand, it is the level of craftsmanship. Enamel polishing, fineness, sintering, etc. For example, the number of enamel firing layers, whether the layer has a bottom layer, an intermediate layer and a transparent protective layer. The firing of the middle layer determines the color and picture structure of the enamel, while the transparent enamel layer protects the enamel from oxidation and discoloration. The more advanced the enamel craftsmanship is, the higher the chance that enamel can be kept intact over time. Is this what collectors expect?

   The third point is full color. The first step in making enamel is to prepare a glaze. The glaze is a mixture of powders and oils ground from turquoise, agate, turquoise and other ore. Also divided into transparent, translucent and opaque three. These color changes come from different methods of grinding glazes and different proportions of mixing. The modulation of full and bright colors needs to be grasped by skilled artisans with their skilled experience, which is also a reflection of the exquisite enamel technology.

   The last point is the added value of the enamel watch. This added value includes the age of the watch, the brand, the master of the production, and the meaning or story contained in the watch. The older the enamel watch is, the higher its value is. This is not absolute, but time has helped us to judge the value of the enamel watch very well. It can still maintain the gorgeous color after historical panning. It is proved by facts. The level of enamel craftsmanship. Brands and masters are also a truth, a symbol of quality accumulated over time. The story adds commemorative meaning to the artwork.

Summary: Someone likened the making of enamel to a practice. The production process must be painstakingly repeated, and must be done to the extreme every time. This is the value of enamel watches. However, the value of enamel watches is not precisely measurable by numbers. Collectors’ artistic accomplishment and tastes determine that their relationship with enamel watches may lie in the immediate heart.
