A paillonneur arranges gold paillons, or spangles, on dials which are then
enamelled. How paillons are made: the engraver makes a stamping tool which has the shape and volume of the desired motif, and uses this tool to cut the paillon from a sheet of gold. These tiny gold decorations are positioned in the base layers of enamel to form a decoration that will glimmer through the enamel top layers.
