Hand Finished Winding Rotor 

Each winding rotor is shaped and finished using traditional techniques. Using special hand-held burnishing tools the edges are cut, smoothed and beveled along the edge at an angle of 45 degrees. After, the bevels are carefully polished by hand with various density pith-wood sticks and diamond paste to create the final mirror polish. Finally the rotor is hand engraved with the ROYTER logo and dipped in plating solution for the final bright white or rose gold finish.   

Hand Polished Watch Case 

Using cutting - edge equipment in harmony with the highest quality standards, each ROYTER watch case is carefully polished and finely satin brushed by hand to perfection. To achieve ideal depth of brilliance this process requires a steady hand, an intense attention to detail and many years of experience. It presents undeniable sophistication, pursuit of perfection and aesthetic refinement at every angle. 

Custom Lacquered Hands 

Hand lacquered chronograph hands became the signature design feature for ROYTER luxury watches and is a form of art on its own. The lacquer is carefully applied to each individual hand using various colors chosen by the client. The process requires a highly trained eye, steady hand and high level of skill. During the execution, it is important to maintain 100% focus and concentration for the result to be perfect.
