Special Timepiece For The Opening Of Patek Philippe Yuandi— ‘chinese Carp’ Block Clock

Patek Philippe Ref. 1635M ‘Chinese Carp’ Clock
    Baccarat crystal carved platinum-plated dome clock.
    The dome, curved body and dial are all hand-made from two layers of crystal: the orange outer layer and the transparent inner layer. The base is clear crystal.
    The carp relief pattern of the clock body is hand-carved, and the dial is processed by a lathe with a cutting wheel. Use a cover screen during production to achieve a sharper cut and make the parts of the pattern more prominent. The edges of the pattern are etched to make the contrast between the frosted transparent crystal on the inner layer and the orange highlight pattern on the outer layer more vivid. Hand sculpting alone requires nearly 150 hours of intensive work by a professional artisan.
    Platinum-plated hour dial with embossed Arabic numerals.
    Only this one.
