https://www.rgmwatches.com/rgmblog/2019 ... ional-parkWorking with stone requires great skill as each stone has its own specific hardness, the marquetry craftsmen must have just the right touch. For all their beauty, hard stones are extremely difficult to handle, even with skilled craftsman the stones are fragile and must be cut thin, shaped, and polished.
The reward for this demanding work is a miniature puzzle, each cut piece will have its own place in the tiny mosaic creating a beautiful piece of art made of stone. The possibilities are endless using this technique, the craftsmen can reinterpret the most spectacular and beautiful images, scenes and landscapes.
For the watch pictured here we picked the famous Yosemite tunnel view. Personally visiting Yosemite will leave you with a life long lasting impression of the beauty and wonderful place, the natural beauty is incredible. I would advise everyone to have it on there travel list.
Real watch making
Not so much real watch making

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
