Milus Creates Monocera Haute Joaillerie Enamel and Diamonds Watch

Jun 18, 2010
The illustrious watch manufacture Milus has brought forth its enchanting Monocera Haute Joaillerie Enamel & Diamonds watch. It represents a perfect alliance between traditional high-end jewelry and horological craftsmanship.

The bracelet of the charming lady’s watch is sculptured from a single piece of 18-carat white-gold, in the shape of an open ellipse. With its curved, tapering lines, the Monocera watch wraps itself around the wearer’s wrist with incomparable comfort.

The brand’s latest creation catches the eye with its cobalt blue areas, covered with grand feu enamel. They resemble small islands, surrounded by a multitude of scintillating white diamonds with the total weight of 1.37 carats. In compliance with the brand’s fundamental philosophy, only genuine enamel and high quality diamonds have been employed in the manufacturing of this horological masterpiece.

The enamel contains a mixture of lead oxides and quartz sand and its chemical composition is identical to that of glass. The typical blue color is achieved by adding cobalt oxide to the composite mentioned. The technique applied to the Monocera Haute Joaillerie Enamel & Diamonds watch is called “champleve”.

This complicated technique implies crushing small pieces of glass into fine grains. Thoroughly washed afterwards, the powdered mass of glass is carefully laid with a delicate brush on tiny depressions, tastefully matching the theme of the watch. The next step presupposes melting this mass into the white gold base material at high temperature (800-860°).

Eventually, the white gold base is covered with five elaborate layers of this substance. To ensure smoothness and lustre of the surface, the enamel is ground and polished by hand. The setting of sparkling diamonds is also performed by hand. The final note of harmony to the design of the jewelry Milus watch is added by the winding crown, encrusted with a white diamond.

The Milus Monocera Haute Joaillerie Enamel & Diamonds watch borrows its name from the cosmic constellation “Monozeros”, which means “unicorn” when translated from Latin. This idea has been successfully reflected in the exclusive style of the model, crowned by a tiny sphere.

Milus has always created highly unusual timepieces in its perpetual quest to conquer its place at the pinnacle of timelessness. The company’s newest product demonstrates such attention to detail and perfection that only the top watchmaking brands can attain.
