They are quite possibly the smallest and most fragile items that Rosenthal manufactures: watch faces made of porcelain for its own wristwatch collection. On our tour of the production facility in Selb, we saw slips, spray guns, screen printing and patient hands.
Wristwatches need to be robust and long-lasting, which is why hard, resistant porcelain is an extremely suitable material for the production of watch faces.
It is a functional object – for every day and every occasion. It is long-lasting and robust. It is well-designed and gives us pleasure. Every one of Rosenthal’s wristwatches is an all-rounder and stylish to boot. And what‘s more, the watch faces are handmade from an unusual material: porcelain. Sometimes kept extremely simple with a smooth surface. Sometimes very sensuous with tiny droplets that have been worked into the porcelain. The white of the watch face is contemporarily combined with a pink-coloured, yellow gold or stainless steel casing. With a brown, black or white leather strap. Countless possible combinations create an unusual wristwatch.
