COMPETENTIA 1515 MASTERPIECE SOLID PLATINUM MINUTE TOURBILLON  
 “HUMANOID FACE” COLLECTION

UNIQUE PIECE 1/1 INSPIRED BY THE AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINE

I drew the sketch for this “face” some years ago, imagining a way to sculpt a dial from solid gold and grand feu enamel. 
The traditional crafts of hand-engraving and enamelling enabled me to unveil this collection “Humanoid Faces”, an interpretation of the marks left by time on the faces of the world.
” Fabien Lamarche
