Dial Textures

Dial Textures

Many of Stuhrling Original’s watches include rich texturization on the dial that makes the entire timepiece come alive. We achieve this using vintage German machinery that hydraulically stamps the specifically engineered pattern on to the dial plates, a process that can take up to thirty continuous compressions, depending on the depth of the grooves. The result is an amazing finish and shine.


The women’s models in Stuhrling’s collection often include genuine mother-of-pearl inlays, a material we import from Australia. Their irridescent light refraction gives these petite timepieces a bolder, more noticeable presence on the wrist, especially when they are accented with Swarovski crystals or genuine diamonds! When it comes to using these inlays, many times the mother-of-pearl must be custom-cut in order to fit into the overall style and design of the watch: a costly and time-consuming endeavor. The finished product, however, is well worth the extra effort!

Carbon Fiber

Sportier watches, especially those inspired by racecars, call for the use of carbon fiber dials. Like mother-of-pearl, they sometimes need to be custom-cut to fit the dial design, but we gladly take the time to give each and every timepiece the finish it deserves. The Phantom Tourbillon is one example; the carbon fiber had to be cut at 6 o’clock to accomodate the open heart tourbillon complication.

    As a long time collector of timepieces, I am very impressed with the SO Hydraulically Stamped Guilloche dials. Second to none in this price range.
