Key Features and Information
Translated from German, Sonne means “sun”, one of the most ancient symbols associated with the passage of time. Since the time of the first sundial, the heavenly body came to the main towers of the cities. You can still find clocks at town halls and train stations with allegorical images of the Sun in various styles and from various eras, many of which are cultural monuments and objects of tourist interest. The sun is a source of life, its warmth is accumulated in every cell and grain of sand, and in any culture it is especially revered.
The dial is hand-engraved with punching and niello, a shining golden sun over black silver, with hand-made hands of a dark blue-violet shade made of thermal tempered steel. You have the option to choose hands of either a deep blue shade, or a dark purple shade (both pictured). There are also two versions of the dial available, one with a four in the form of “IV” and the other in the form of “IIII”. The dial and hands are all made by hand, so you can choose what fits your taste.
Thin relief engraving, perfect size, pleasant volume and weight on the hand, handmade. Exactly the same watch you will not find anywhere else. Tribute the Sun dial work by our master engraver Yuri Fomichov. Note the very special tempering colour achieved for the ‘Serpent’ shaped hands, which is rarely seen due to the fragile temperature adjustments needed to achieve it.
This Sonne watch brings the warm light of the solid rose gold, contrasting with the hand-hammered black silver base. This is a Unique Piece, a one of a kind bespoke timepiece, hand-engraved and carefully custom-created to suit your requirements.
About the Edge Model Series and PG Watch Manufactory
The idea of the EDGE model line is formulated as Art & Frame . ‘Art’ – the dial as a work of art, an artistic jewellery miniature, while the case is the ‘Frame’, which protects the artistic miniature from the external environment, while not loading the item with high value. The EDGE series watches are all practical and comfortable – sizes 40-41 mm, with convex sapphire glass, and using the classic Japanese automatic brand, Miyota (quality as in ETA, any spare parts are available), basic protection against everyday household problems with moisture. The watch is assembled in Great Britain in the private workshop of German Polosin.
The PG Watch Manufactory (the PG logo is indicated instead of the number 6 on the watch) is ready to offer handmade watches developed according to customer’s sketches within the Watch Atelier. This customised model from the EDGE series is the optimal combination of convenience and quality for a reasonable price, and all while getting our own completely unique timepiece. Handmade watches are a valuable, unforgettable gift.
