    Since its inception, Jaeger-LeCoultre has been dedicated to the details, and the enamel micro-painting art perfectly reflects this pursuit, highlighting Jaeger-LeCoultre’s outstanding watchmaking craftsmanship with extreme beauty.
    Today, the enamel micro-painting process is almost lost. As a defender of watchmaking tradition, Jaeger-LeCoultre has carried forward this ancient watch decoration technology, making pure enamel shine in the hands of enamel painting experts.
   Careful attention to detail is an essential quality for all watchmakers, and it also determines the quality of miniature painting. The masters of Jaeger-LeCoultre watchmaking are constantly striving for perfection, creating the unique second face of Reverso series flip watches and the famous round watch dial according to customers’ wishes.
    The step-by-step manufacturing process requires a lot of delicate operation. Before starting the painting, the enamelist applied a layer of magnetic powder to the back of the dial or the bottom of the case to prevent the metal from deforming during the firing process. Since then, the artist has begun decorating with layers of white enamel glaze.
    Based on this layer of enamel, various metal oxide pigments can be added to form a variety of colors. These brilliant enamels are drawn on metal with quill pens or extremely fine brushes, and baked repeatedly in the furnace until the desired delicate color is formed. Ultimate success depends largely on being able to form the finest and most accurate lines possible. However, each high-temperature roasting stage (800 to 850 degrees in fire enamel firing) is a difficult test for the work. In addition, in order to ensure that the watch mechanism works properly, the enamelist needs to be absolutely precise when operating, so as to not exceed the allowable error range of two tenths of a millimeter.
    Finally, in order to protect the enamel micropaint on the back of the Reverso series, the enamelist covered the painting surface with a solvent. The solvent protective layer is composed of multiple layers of thin transparent enamel and also serves as a glaze to protect the miniature. The solvent protective layer enhances the depth and intensity of the colors, making the picture more vivid. The last step of the process is done at a temperature of more than 800 degrees Celsius, so it is extremely dangerous, because each time baking in the furnace may destroy the work, and torture the hours of hard work. Enamel painting is also called ‘painting under solvent.’ With its high artistic value and characteristics that are not easy to deteriorate, enamel micropainting is the most perfect enamel art.
