Damascus Steel Series: Recreating the Top Metal Forging Craftsmanship of the Seventeenth Century

The Taiwanese team designed and developed a new Damascus steel watch, created and launched by designer Xie Dayu. They cooperated with Taiwan Metal Technology Factory to combine the beautiful craftsmanship of historical culture and modern technology to create a series of hundred-layer Damascus steel watches.

Damascus steel, also known as "the silk of steel", is a handicraft that combines performance and beauty. It is the perfect metallurgical technology pursued by the ancients and is one of the world heritage. It is currently the most difficult metal forging technique. Because the process of making Damascus steel satin is extremely complicated and time-consuming, it is a beautiful craft that combines historical culture and modern technology.

  • Used by the three most famous swords in the medieval world

    In the 12th century Europe, the Crusaders entered West Asia for the first time and met a group of soldiers in Damascus, the capital of Syria. The knives in their hands could chop feathers floating in the air, and the sharpness of the knives made the soldiers on the battlefield invincible. Therefore, The Crusaders named this amazing knife, "Damascus Knife". It is one of the three most famous swords in the world. With its powerful power, sharpness, and gorgeous texture, it stood out in the medieval game of power.

  • The perfect metallurgical craftsmanship of the ancients

    Damascus steel is famous for its resistance to damage, ductility, sharpenability, and unique texture characteristics, also known as Mohammed pattern. As the centuries go by, the forging skills are slowly lost. Nowadays, countries around the world continue to Try a variety of techniques in the hope of recreating the unique power and charm of Damascus steel.

  • Texture drawn by time

    Because the process of making Damascus steel satin is extremely complicated and time-consuming, it is also known as the most difficult metal technique in the Middle Ages. Such strong and soft Damascus steel, with its unique texture details, is like the annual rings of a tree. Like the waves on the sea or the clouds in the sky, they are constantly stacking and changing over time. The new textures born at every moment present the unique beauty and novelty of nature.

DESIGN CONCEPT

The perfect combination of historical craftsmanship and modern design

In order to fully demonstrate the texture and characteristics of Damascus steel, deep corrosion technology is used on the surface to make the texture of Damascus steel more obvious and concave and convex. In the design, the glass mirror is enlarged and the dial is reduced, so that the forged surface of Damascus steel becomes more visible. The inside of the mirror can be perfectly displayed, with a high-grade anti-glare sapphire crystal glass, a Japanese-made ultra-thin quartz movement, a Swiss-made self-winding mechanical movement, a crown made of sculptures, and finally a handmade Italian leather watch. Belt, all designs are to fully present the power and beauty of Damascus steel.

  • We shape the layers through continuous extrusion, forging and cutting of steel, showing different degrees and forms of texture changes, and designed two Damascus steel series watches, namely the quartz watch "Cloud" and the automatic mechanical watch. "Mohammed".

STORY OF TIME

The texture of history, the texture of nature, the texture of time, depict your story

Damascus steel has many restrictions and high costs in production. If it is used in watches with complex structures, the price is often quite high. Therefore, we continue to change the design and manufacturing methods so that this Damascus steel, which is full of history and culture, can be used in a controllable manner. It was successfully built within the cost. In order to reproduce the lost techniques and textures of Damascus steel, experienced metal craftsmen must combine their own skills, wisdom and concentration to perfectly control the fire and create Each style has a unique texture.

  • The texture of Damascus steel is like human fingerprints. Each watch has its own genes and uniqueness, showing everyone's unique and profound taste and romance.

  • I believe that what a watch represents is not just a timepiece that displays time, or a decorative accessory, but a person’s taste and attitude, and a watch with a story is suitable for a person with a story to wear. .
