HOW IT ALL STARTED
One may say that the observation of nature is in our blood, with childhoods spent exploring the garden of life. The desire to give life to a precious and ancient scarab, which symbolized rebirth and regeneration, manifested itself in pure gold and silver. The expert hands of gifted craftsmen were essential to bring the idea to life; this idea being the dandy wearing a unique, charmed jewel. Particularly now, in our time, when the attractive watch has to sit next an equally mesmerizing counterpart, the dandy has the opportunity to show off his unique talisman – a reminder of his own story. The softness of the shape and passion behind the idea of the Bug Me line, fashions an eternal companion for the wrist.
BORN IN PARIS
Burins, gravers, burnishers and other small pointed blades with wooden handles: the engraver’s tools bear witness to the secular roots of the oldest form of decorative art used to embellish the most beautiful of exceptional articles in existence. In the skilful hands of an expert, they transform the gold and silver raw material into a work of art, each trait sculpted and animated by the play of light. Between copperplate, bas-relief or embossing, the surfaces patiently accumulate each detail of the design, offering exceptional areas of expression.
ENHANCE IN SWITZERLAND
Because of the organic nature of the material and the manner in which it is produced, it is safe to say that every enameled piece is unique in its own right. The master artisan does not paint the motif directly onto the jewel, but instead applies oxides on the Bug Me scarab’s shell. Finally, the skilled craftsman places the jewel into a fire oven (800° -‐ 900° C), three or four times, to allows the color to appear gradually. Ultimately, this “Grand Feu” enamel exhibits unalterable and refined adornment.
