A unique timepiece for every stylish man, this Murano Glass Men's Watch is a fine reminder of Venice and Italy. This Millefiori Venetian watch is a very special gift for men fit for any occasion, including birthday, anniversary, father's day, or Christmas. With a pattern of Murano Glass millefiori mosaic in rich colors in the center of the dial, this Venetian men's watch showcases the artistic Murano glass-making tradition and classic Italian style.
  • Measurements: The dial of this Murano glass watch measures 1-1/2 inch in diameter. The entire case measures 1-3/4 inches in diameter and is 3/8 inch thick for a solid masculine look. The band is just under 7/8 inch or 22mm wide.
  • The watch features silver-tone details, white dial, and clear black numbers.
  • This watch features reliable high-quality Japanese quartz movement.
  • The classic leatherette band is comfortable and durable; it has multiple holes to fit a wide range of wrist sizes.
  • The Millefiori insert on the face of this watch is crafted by hand in a family glass-making factory on Murano island.
  • The watch comes with an attractive velvet pouch and a certificate of authenticity.
  • Because the millefiori design on the watch face is crafted entirely by hand from small randomly selected pieces of Murano Glass, no two watches will be the same. This variability of patterns is a feature of Millefiori glass-making technique and not a defect.

Workmanship



The technique of fusing together small colored fragments of glass dates all the way back to Ancient Egypt and Rome. After the fall of Rome, having been lost for centuries, this intricate technique was reinvented by Murano glass masters in the 15th century, and given new life and worldwide fame. While this technique is called "Murrine" on Murano island, outside of Venice it was dubbed "Millefiori", or "a thousand flowers" for its resemblance to a blossoming meadow.
A Millefiori design starts with the rods of different colors, each made by stretching a blob of glass into a cane. These canes are then cut into small segments, and the segments are carefully arranged by hand into a pattern that fits within a desired shape. Finally, the resulting arrangement is put into a special furnace where the tiny glass pieces are carefully fused together in high heat, and then gradually cooled off. This is how Murano masters create their famous Millefiori pendants, earrings, cufflinks, pill boxes, paperweights and many other beautiful and unique Millefiori jewelry pieces that are instantly recognized and valued for their artistic appeal and fine craftsmanship. Enjoy your Murano Glass jewelry creation, knowing that it was carefully handmade by talented Murano Glass artisans in Venice, Italy.
