Know-how

Gold & Wood

At Gold & Wood, everything starts with a drawing …

Then comes the careful selection of wood species, according to their nobility, their rarity and the emotion they inspire.The different wood veneers are then shaped and delicately plated on thin aluminum strips.

At the heart of the workshop, a true laboratory of creation and innovation, safe and precise gestures made exclusively by hand, perpetuate a know-how that our Master Craftsmen have passed on for decades.

From the sketch to the frame, dozens of technical steps will follow each other to give life to each Eyepiece.
Time is a key ingredient in the equation of the Manufacture, a creation that can mobilize our craftsmen for more than 6 months.

Gold & Wood, a reference in terms of innovation and craftsmanship, which preserves its identity and DNA while constantly reinventing itself.
