DeLaneau,the perfect harmony between a watch and a jewel
Deaneau is a watch company from Basel, Swiss. The brand is unique and although modest and not well known to the public, it is incredibily artistic and with a unqiue artisan touch to it. It was created 85 years ago by Rolf and Yolanda Tschudin. They started creating watches for jewelers at the Place Vendome in Paris.
Gemstones in watches
Delaneau is and has been always a company that specialized in setting gemstones in watches. Now this is a very unique thing and therefor the company was first of all a producer of watches, so precious that we might better call them jewelry maybe, for the big names on the Place Vendome in Paris.
In 2001 they started to do enameling too. Using the Sous Fondant technique. This is done with magnifying glasses and only after heating will the final result be visible. Making it extremely easy to make mistakes during the whole process. This is why only true craftsmen can do this job.
DeLaneau is unique for another reason too. It is one of the very few watch companies that specialize in the female watch. There is a much larger men's watch industry but these watches are so precious and so beautiful they are often regarded much more as jewerly than *just* a watch. Cherished like your most precious ring, according to Brigitte Morina, creative director of the company
