To finish a movement every bridge, lever and spring must be decorated to create the perfect technical and aesthetic result desired.
The beveling of these parts requires extreme attention to detail. The purpose is to eliminate the marks remaining after machining, both from an aesthetic and functional standpoint.
These perimeters of the pieces are in this way emphasized by a selection of points which govern the criteria of the finish.
All surfaces of the pieces are retouched and decorated visible and hidden, functional and non functional.
All operations in this department are made by hand using files, buff sticks, stones, burnishers and polishing motors.
To complete this work at the desired level of finish different states of surface are required.
Satinage of the sides, removing of burs, straight and circular graining and mirror polishing of bevels. The authenticity of this work can be seen in the internal bevels which are incapable of being polished by machine..
