We can’t deny that watchmaking is an absolute art, but there are some dials that take this concept to a whole new level. Dials can tell a story or celebrate an iconic element in history, or even depict the beauty of a season through painting and gem-setting techniques that require an extremely high level of expertise – leaving us in awe of their charm.

Think of a dial that renders your wrist mesmerizing – such as Cartier’s Révélation d’une Panthère watch which forms the face of a panther through gold beads with every wrist movement. Bovet, on another note, decorated the dial of its Amadéo Fleurier watch with what could only be considered as the perfect setting for its tourbillon, while CHANEL framed the movement of Mademoiselle Privé Camélia Skeleton timepiece with a camellia flower set with sparkling diamonds.

These are only a few examples of what our list comprises. Check them out in the Photo Gallery and choose your favorite!
