The watch is full of various colors, and the mosaic style makes the watch’s music temperament jump up, which shows that this watchmaking brand with Fleurier as its origin has long supported the modern music culture.

The 42-mm-diameter dial is rich in content. The wooden-inlaid dial has a heavy American-style guitar. The tourbillon at 6 o’clock becomes an integral part of the guitar and is cleverly designed. The watch uses a manual winding movement inside, and the power reserve display at 12 o’clock is convenient for daily use. The wooden feel of the dial is very strong, making the watch unique.
In addition to American-style music watches, the British version was also introduced. There is not much change in the appearance of the watch, but the difference in pattern and material. The British flag can be clearly seen on the dial of the British version. The overall color of the watch is blue and platinum. Different styles and the same functions of watches, meaning that music has no borders.
The making of the dial is iconic. This is the first time Parmigiani has used inlay craftsmanship. Both types of watches are unique and amazing. Mosaic work is a respectable ancient art that is no longer common in life. The process of inlaying is mainly to cut out some inlays on the wooden plane and assemble them to create extremely delicate decorative effects.
The work of the inlay craftsmen began with the original design of Lintong, and they used a special tool (Rotring drawing pen) to carefully draw each element. This copying work is the basis of the mosaic work, from which the size and contour of each design block can be determined.
Next, inlay craftsmen reprint ten or more design drawings on paper, and they will use these drawings to cut out different design blocks.
Once the last block was cut, there seemed to be no more complicated procedures, at which point the craftsmen began to assemble the design block. Although the entire process strictly follows the dimensions, when the block assembly stage is reached, the craftsman may still find very small errors or small eye-catching cracks, so the entire work is ruined. The craftsman must start from scratch and patiently copy and cut again as needed.
The work of mosaic work must be persistent and accurate, and even the smallest details must be carefully considered, and the overall situation must be kept in mind. Everything is revealed at the last minute because of the results of the mosaic work. At this time, each block is perfectly embedded in its own position and plays its role as part of the whole.
