Optima Riflessi is a unique and valuable object, with a classic design, embellished by a delicate geometric pattern, etched with Guillochè technique. The special finish creates the precious, sparkling reflections, ideal for a distinct, refined style.
The Guillochè technique
Guilloché (Guilloche), is an engraving technique in which a very precise intricate repetitive pattern or design composed by thin wavy lines is mechanically etched into an underlying material. Specifically, it involves a technique of engine turning, called guilloché in French after the French engineer “Guillot”, who invented a machine “that could scratch fine patterns and designs on metallic surfaces”. The composition of lines, their deepness and angle can create fascinating sparks of reflected light.
