Beautiful Japanese pattern design woven with the deep blue of lapis lazuli
This is an unique dial that combines lapis lazuli cut to form a Japanese pattern.
The combination of the regular pattern and the irregular and unique pattern of the stone makes each piece a uniquely beautiful design.
The lapis lazuli is delicately cut into pieces of only 5 mm in size.
Natural stones are easily cracked, making it difficult to apply such a fine pattern. Especially for the small parts with curves, it took a lot of trial and error to complete the process.
Durability is also guaranteed because the stones are fixed to a metal plate.
Fish crest is an ancient symbol of fertility and is based on the auspicious motif of wealth and happiness.
The dial is fantastically designed to resemble a fish swimming gracefully in the starry sky, and combines a beautiful scale pattern with natural lapis lazuli.
It is paired with a handmade band of natural olive wood, which is said to be a lucky tree and is reminiscent of a sandy beach.
A dial made through a number of processes
The dial is made of carefully selected beautiful natural stones.
We conducted many trials and tests with expert and skilled craftsmen on delicate natural stones, which are difficult to process.
We also deal with many stones with delicate internal structures that cannot be cut into thin pieces at ordinary stone mills.
Because natural stones are very fragile, NOZ selects high quality stones by actually checking each one.
Natural stones have a variety of expressions, and even some of the most beautifully patterned stones may have cracks(*) of natural origin.
In order to make the most of the beauty of these stones, NOZ products are made stronger and more durable by fixing the natural stone to a metal plate.
(*Cracks are naturally occurring cracks like streaks or breaks in the stone as it grows.)
NOZ’s wooden bands are made through a large number of manual and careful polishing processes.
Hardwood is especially difficult to work with, and a rough texture will set on it if the polishing process is not fully matured.
NOZ timepieces assure a beautiful finish that is smooth to the touch on every corner.
Experience a wonderful and addictive touch!
