The dial starts out as 18K gold.  It is then give over to a separate crafts person.  Guilloché technique is then joined with Grand Feu cloisonné enamel.  Step one is the Guilloché to create an outline of the design.  This is then handed over to a master enamellist who then applies the enamel to bring the total design to life.  

The bezel of the case is then set with diamonds, as is the strap's clasp.

The case is of 18K white gold and measures 37mm in diameter, 8mm in height.  The movement is Vacheron's caliber 4400.  Hand winding with 65 hours of power reserve.
