Since the creation of the self-made watch industry, the exquisite craftsmanship of the hand workshop has represented reliable and perfect quality. Breguet has always polished every timepiece with the most sincere attitude and the most professional craftsmanship, and strives to present unique and precious products to the distinguished customers. On June 16th and June 18th, Breguet Shanghai Peninsula Hotel Boutique invited the brand VIPs to participate in the experiential activities on the theme of handicrafts, to appreciate the extraordinary charm of handicrafts.
On the day of the event, 6 distinguished patrons participated in the experience activity. In order to provide the most intimate and thoughtful service to each patron, 6 experienced shop assistants from Baodi Boutique gave a one-on-one explanation. Baodi specially invited the master of silver carvings to explain the professional knowledge of carved carvings of Baodi, and the patrons would experience the silver carving and engraving by themselves, so as to deepen the deep understanding of the brand.
Breguet has prepared silverware and finger cots, carving knives, auxiliary rulers and other tools for each patron, so that patrons can experience the fun and charm of hand engraving by themselves. The master of silver carvings explained the history and crafts of engraved flowers, and instructed the customers to use the tools correctly in order to engrav the ideal patterns.
The engraved flower is one of Breguet’s unique symbols. More than two hundred years ago, Abraham-Louis Breguet introduced this extraordinary watchmaking technology, making this art form that originated in ancient Greece flourish in the watch industry. The intricate but orderly engraving on the dial surface with a small area is a test of the watchmaker’s professional ability. The watchmaker of Breguet uses engraving lathes and other engraving tools that are completely pushed and controlled by hand. Carve out the designed pattern. On the one hand, the ‘readability’ of the timepiece is significantly improved; on the other hand, various decorative patterns can be used to delineate and highlight different areas on the dial to set various relatively independent complex functions and time displays.
The event lasted for about two hours, and the hand-engraved silverware was given as a special gift to the engraver. On June 18, Breguet Shanghai Peninsula Hotel Boutique held two other manual experience activities, which received the support and affirmation of many customers.
