We named this enamel Hebridean Blue not because it’s reminiscent of a particular sea or sky, but more because of the calm, peaceful feeling this soft, almost chalky blue gives off. Tranquil, like dusk on a Summer’s evening on one of the many beaches on the West Coast.
There is no other way of rendering colour which comes close to vitreous (or grand feu) enamel, nor is there another which simply won’t fade over time. It’s as difficult as it is rewarding and perhaps it was the challenge of mastering one of the great crafts of watchmaking, as much as the end product, which drew us to this ancient art.
