The CCIFG is pleased to introduce its newest member Deguiret!

Deguiret is a watch brand that launched its first two models in December 2021

The timepieces combine the beauty of Georgian cloisonne enamel with the tradition of Swiss watchmaking.

Lucas Roillet, the French founder of the watch company Deguiret, met Lia Meskhi and Nikoloz (Koka) Panchulidze in Tbilisi, Georgia. He was instantly drawn to the skills of these two enamelers who have mastered the art of cloisonné enamel, also known as minankari. This craft originated in Georgia in the 7th century but was then all but abandoned by the 15th century.

Cloisonné, with its complex beauty, is a labour-intensive craft that can’t be mechanised. Each pattern in either silver or gold is painstakingly hand-made by the enamel artist.
