The bevelling brings the mechanism to life, on a mysterious starry background. This is crafted using a traditional rose engine – a tool which, despite being all of two hundred years old, has just found a new application, thanks to Memoris. The unique process creates a spectacular effect that makes the stars twinkle in myriad ways, depending on the angle at which they are viewed.
