Ematelier Aftermarket Modified Datejust 41 Watch Celebrates Rolex Cloisonne Enamel Dials

Canada-based Ematelier brings the beauty and technology of enamel art dials at a reasonable price. When I last spoke about Ematelier, I was reviewing one of its enameled, limited edition women’s watches. Today, I will be discussing a men’s product, but the Ematelier cannot be completely limited edition because it is a special Dials that can be assembled aftermarket onto a modern Rolex Datejust 41 watch. Here are some of the dials made by Ematelier, each inspired by the 1940s to 1960s Replica Rolex Watches Uk  cloisonné enamel dials produced for Rolex watches in the 1960s. Specifically, these special repeating dials celebrate the Rolex “Atlas of the Americas” reference 6085, the Neptune reference 8382, the Dragon Reference 8382, and the Rolex “The Map of the Americas” reference 8382. Reference 8651, Caravelle Reference 6100 and American Eagle 6085.

Cloisonné enamel is a special enamel technique in which the craftsman uses thin strips of metal, usually gold, and in this table, the thickness of the wire (only 0.07 mm) to form shapes and separate colors in the enamel material. From an artistic point of view, cloisonné enamel is one of the most important types, as it can produce some of the most beautiful effects – and the enamel can be used in a variety of ways. The technique itself is time-consuming and laborious. Most importantly, enameling requires constant baking and handling of the dial throughout the creation process. This makes rejection rates very high and cloisonné enamel dials even more difficult to manufacture. There are only a handful of businesses in the world that can do this job, and Ematelier is one of them.


The original cloisonné Rolex dials were all produced for Rolex by outside specialists in Geneva and the surrounding area. Only a few hundred cloisonné enamel dials made by Rolex were produced, and these watches were tiny compared to today’s tastes. Ematelier wanted to recreate those original designs in a slightly larger form, so he first had to carefully recreate the dials. He chose them to complement the Datejust 41 for a number of reasons, one of which was the depth of the dial. Given that the enamel dial is thicker than the standard dial, the Rolex movement removed the date complication to make room for the dial to fit. Space. I don’t think anyone would miss the date that appears on a dial like this one.

The basic dial itself is 18k gold with hour markers. The dial here does not have the Rolex logo on it, as this would get into murky waters when it comes to intellectual property law. Although Ematelier did prefer to use the authentic Rolex crown logo on the dial (from the other (local sourcing), but if desired. Interestingly, these modified Rolex watches are fully reversible, which means that a watchmaker can reassemble part of the movement while Remove the enamel dial, then replace the original Rolex dial. There are few other aftermarket processes on the watch that can be swapped back to the original process.
