Collaboration made in Italy between AB AETERNO Watches and Bottega del Gioiello that combines innovation with craftsmanship. The watch is available in two options, Maple and Red Sandalwood.
Within the ateliers of Sorrento, an ancient art form still thrives: that of Sorrentine marquetry. A tradition known around the world, it is practiced by a few master artisans who skilfully craft the wood to conceive of unique and fascinating objects. Its appeal is most certainly obtained by virtue of its lengthy and scrupulous production process; one that could never be proxied with any sort of machinery. The various colours, tonality and consistencies of the wood are first cut into long pieces, then glued together, and finally moulded according to the desired design contours.
In time, this tradition has lent itself to the realisation of furniture and furnishing accessories to more elegant embellishments, such as necklaces and bracelets. For the first time in its history, the inlay tradition will be united with the world of watchmaking in AB AETERNO’s Limited Edition Collection. The timepieces, available in both Maple and Red Sandalwood, fuse together the tradition of this refined 18th century art form with modern innovation.
