A complicated watch is not necessarily a high-end watch. Way and beyond the complex and reliable techniques, it is the degree of the finishing that makes the difference. To judge the perfection of a watch, care must be taken at every stage and for every detail.

In the high-end market, a lot of the surfaces are reworked, corrected and decorated. These operations are performed with tools such as files, polishing buff, stones, burnishers and polishing drums. This craftsmanship enables to create surfaces which are polished, satin-finished, stretched, blurred, beaded, guilloche ...

Some are particularly decisive in terms of quality: those that distinguish the high-end and that the expert eye will recognise, identifying the technique of execution used. Among the techniques, bevelling is a powerful indication. This meticulous work, which consists of highlighting the edges of the pieces with bright lines, acts as the trademark of the high-end when it is carried out to perfection. The authenticity of hand-made bevelling is shown by the sharpness of the incoming and outgoing edges, which the machine cannot produce to date.
