New Era To Tells Time From Gorgeous & Glittery Artwork On The Wrist





I am Brian AU, Founder & CEO of BRAVURA (GGPW), also the Innovator of Gem Gold Sintering Technology (GGST), and based in Hong Kong. 

I have developed a new approach to making the Watch Dial, which overall quality could be comparable with the Enamel Dial. For more than a decade of R&D, many process improvements and experiments have been done to ensure GGST Dial’s Quality could sustain an extremely long time, even everlasting. I named this Approach “GGST”.




New Era To Tell Time From Gorgeous & Glittering Artwork On The Wrist 



Marie-Laure Cérède, Cartier’s Watch Design Chief

On Bridging The Past And The Future.


“………In the future watches won’t be an instrument to read the time, because we can read the time everywhere. And a jewelry watch will be predominantly defined by its aesthetics, ……”.  

“……. is an innovative way of thinking of time. Because it’s easy to think of another way to wear a watch, by making a pendant or a brooch. But to have a new way of reading the time on the wrist is much more difficult, …….” says Marie-Laure Cérède, the Timepieces Creation Director at Cartier.

Legends Of Tomorrow

“………… Very important. I think we’re entering a new era of watch-making,”  Marie-Laure Cérède explains. “The use of watches are no longer the same as before, they’re more than tools to simply tell the time. Nowadays, you can tell the time everywhere, so we need to propose something special ……….”.

An Innovative Way To Tell Time


Certainly, I do agree with the words Miss Marie-Laure Cérède in the interviews say, thus this was the reason why I had started the R&D on GGST more than a decade ago, and made the GGPW come TRUE today.


Unprecedented Giraffe – GGPW 1

  • Unprecedented Gold Giraffe pattern on black gemstone dial made by GGST, 
  • Swiss Sellita precise mechanical movement, Caliber Number SW210-1,
  • Watch Case SS316L, in W. 41mm X H. 8mm, 
  • Double-sided non-reflective sapphire glass, 
  • Steel heated blue hour and minute Hands, 
  • Double-locked Butterfly Buckle SS316L,
  • Polished Bezel,
  • Alligator leather strap in black.

So I thought Timepieces must have something which the smart products can never be done, otherwise, if they just have the function to tell time only, but without spectacular aesthetic factors, timepieces will hard to survive being under the inundation of smart products.


Unprecedented Giraffe – GGPW 2

  • Unprecedented Gold Giraffe pattern on black gemstone dial made by GGST, 
  • Swiss Sellita precise mechanical movement, Caliber Number SW210-1,

Unprecedented Giraffe – GGPW in assemble

GGPW Assembly – This is the first time to demonstrate to the public the assembly of the Unprecedented Giraffe GGST Dial with Calibre into the watch case, and attach the other high-end watch components, such as Case Cover, Alligator Leather Strap, and double-locked Butterfly Buckle together.






Aesthetic In Horology – Enameling


Despite the mechanical construction of the Calibre being one kind of aesthetic, obviously, only mechanical aesthetics and better designs are not enough anymore.
Because Watch Dials are the first thing your eyes capture when looking at a timepiece, regardless of the price of the watch, most dials start as a disc of raw metal that is then painted by a machine. But if talk about aesthetics to paint dials in Haute horology, for watch collectors only one approach is imminent: the process of enameling.

The reason we have to homage to this ancient technique is the fact enamel has zero space for mistakes, the smallest flaws can result in broken or bubbled dials that need to be scrapped or redone. Furthermore, they draw their inspiration from the fields of art, history, and culture. Finished and refined by the Manufacture’s artisans, these small works of art bear witness to cosmopolitan creativity. Enameling is the most beautiful way to connect Haute horology and art.



New Kind Of Aesthetic From Bravura – GGST


Bravura is at the appropriate timing to debut our first icon “UNPRECEDENTED GIRAFFE”, and to introduce our TWO acronyms “GGST” and “GGPW” to the world by the title of Silver Winner of MUSE Design Awards 2021






We started to develop the GGST in 2008, and many samples and experiments have been done in the past decade to ensure the ability and quality of GGST’s process complied with all expectations.
Besides the enameling, GGST is one of the new ways to connect Haute horology and art in the future.




Silver Winner Of Muse Design Awards 2021 – Unprecedented Giraffe


This is our Honour to win the Silver Winner of Muse Design Awards 2021 in the Category of Watch.     




This Statuette is gorgeous and heavy, to empower us with the strength to create this new era. 





This Certificate is significant and meaningful to Bravura (GGPW).






The Acronym Of GGST And GGPW



“GGST” is the abbreviation of Gem Gold Sintering Technology, it contained several professional knowledge, such as Gemology, Metallurgy, Artistry, Chemistry, and Welding. It’s different than any methodology being used today; thus the appearance and characteristics of the GGST Dials are entirely different than others in the market.



“GGPW” is the abbreviation of Gem with Gold Pattern Watch. It’s assembled with a gorgeous and glittery artistry GGST Dial, Swiss-made Watch Calibre, and high-end watch components.




Materials Used In The GGST Process



Dial :


The GGST has used the black gem as a watch dial, not raw metal as usual. Only the flawless gem plate can be used for GGST process after meticulous cutting and polishing.






Pattern :


Gold as the pattern’s main raw material will be smelted into Special Gold Alloys (SGA) in accordance with the secret recipe for GGST process.

SGA has various colors and will be sintered onto gemstone plates to achieve Gold Pattern as close as the original artwork.



Image :


Only stunning artworks will be selected to design the GGST Dials. All selected artists are invited to participate in designing their own GGST Dial from selected artworks to convert to GGST process.




This cosmopolitan collaboration will make the GGST Dials more meaningful and unique.





R&D Process



This unprecedented project began in 2008. The Challenges during the R&D process of the GGST are as follows: 

1) Fused metal onto a nonmetal surface.

2) This technique can able to sinter exquisite imagery on gem plates.



3) Gold will never peel off from the gem plate surface.





Debut GGPW To The World



Before launching the GGPW to the world, we must overcome and refine most of the concerned quality problems,



Up to now, after more than a decade of working process improvements, quality observations, and product Experiments. The conclusion has been proved the production process has a stable ability and is controllable.



The GGST Dial has the characteristics and the Everlasting Quality of an enamel dial.




GGST Dial Has Everlasting Quality As Enamel Dial


You can imagine the raw materials of GGST Dial (Gem) and Pattern (Gold) are existing underneath the earth for more than thousands of years. So there is doubtless no quality defection of the precious raw material in the coming decades.  I can confirm the gold stuck on the gem dial was not glued. Our Special Gold Alloy (SGA) was “SINTERED” onto the gem dial, and its “SINTERING INTERFACE” between Gold and Gem will never be aged, thus no possibility could occur any peel-off effect on the Gold patterns.



Since Enamel dials were around the end of the 17th century with the advent of the pocket watch, between this period, there was nothing that can be compared with it.



But today after more than 300 years, GGST is the only Approach that can be comparable with enameling, from the raw materials, and the intricate 2D miniature artworks would live on the gem dial inside of the watch case, which shows a new kind of aesthetic and quality to the world.






Compare with Enamel Dial


Today’s most expensive timepieces must be equipped with an Enamel Dial and mechanical movement.

For more than THREE HUNDRED YEARS from the end of the 17th century to the present, only GGST Dial has similar characteristics to Enamel Dial, except for the pattern structure and appearance.

The similar characteristics are as follows: 

1)  GGST can able to produced intricate 2D miniature patterns
2)  The Gold used to make the pattern will never discolor
3)  The gem material of the dial will never fade
4)  The interface will enhance Gold and Gem adhesive strength, and will never age to peel off           affecting the Gold pattern. 
5)  The GGST Dial’s Quality could last decades and even everlasting.
