When a Guilloche Ain’t a Guilloche


guilloche.jpgChad the Watch Guy caught some shop and home freaks talking about a beautiful “flying Guilloche” on a cheap hunk of watch they were flogging. His response? Bull!

Beautiful patterns are meticulously carved into metal using an old rose machine –one that has not been manufactured in over fifty years. You can count master guillocheurs on one hand, and none have the ability to “mass” produce. Even high-end companies like Chronoswiss stamp their dials to mimic an original guilloche style.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The WWR Team
