Brand Review: Zanetti Watches
In his laboratory, in the heart of Rome, Riccardo Zanetti designs watch with unmistakable style, with pencils and pastels. Then, it is up to the skillful technique of watchmakers and the passion of the masters of engraving art to bring to light unique pieces of Italian craftsmanship, to be worn on the wrist. It is in the culture of modern design, in the passion for quality mechanics, and in the value of handmade materials that great-impact watches are born. So, if what you are looking for is a prestigious timepiece, come and discover with us the exclusive collections of Zanetti watches.
Zanetti Watches: Discovering The Brand
Riccardo Zanetti founded Zanetti Handmade Watches in 1982 in Rome, Italy. Initially designing and manufacturing for some of the most prestigious contemporary watch brands, Zanetti presented his first collection of the Zanetti brand in 1986, "the Stradivarius", which was in stock until 2003. We are so hyperconnected, and accustomed to the impalpable digital world, that it seems unlikely we can create a watch full of details, starting from a hand-made design. And yet, it is possible to create a personalized and excellent quality watch, to fulfill the requests that the mind can only imagine.
Zanetti watches are the symbol of how design can meet precision, to merge into a bewitching and precious creation, capable of giving shape to time. The different models inspired by Ancient Rome, Asian and African culture, but also nature, make your dream and leave you breathless.
The feelings that emerge, in enjoying these creations, are the result of the journey into a constructive philosophy without compromises, and in the superfine techniques of working by hand.
This is how fine watches are created with Champleve enamel dials. Imagine the superb effect of the enamel inlaid in cavities, especially incised, to leave the metal base exposed.
Or, the designs that seem to emerge from the dial, thanks to the use of a translucent enamel, which makes them bright and bewitching. The same artisan technique, known as "Basse-taille," which made Fabergé's works famous at the end of the 1800s.
High definition hand engraving, the interplay of shapes, glazes, and micromosaics have given rise to spectacular models. Some are unique pieces, created on request; others are models designed to meet the demands of specific markets. Or, limited editions that have left their mark on the hearts of high-quality watchmakers.
