    Guilloche patterns. Let's see them

    As might be evident from some of my pics I have a fondness for textured watch dials. They can be seen on watches ranging from $10 to $100k (and more).
    No matter if Hobnail (clous de Paris) or Barleycorn (grain d’orge), Basket weave (vieux panier) or Geneva stripes, Snail pattern or Grand Tapisserie. Or some of the many other variants.

    Let's see your watches with different guilloche patterns or other textures.


    Here's my contribution from the affordable side of the scale to kick things off.

    Guangzhou GMW3001:



    Beijing ZunDa



    Baoshihua



    Beijing Beihai



    Beijing ZunJue



    Suzhou



    Mido Multifort Two crown diver (M005.930.11.060.00)



    HMT White Pilot LE





    (will see if I have the time to do a reference thread with the more common variants at some point)

    No discussion of guilloche is complete without Breguet!

    Not sure the pattern on the 5817 has a name, I suppose a wavy spiral.



    My father's 7337 has quite a few:

    Barley corn on the outside, waves on the moon phase clouds, basket weave (but with curvy lines) on the centre, some kind of radial pattern on the sub-seconds, and of course straight lines around the borders of the chapter rings



    Not sure about the name for the pattern on the Sinn 356



    Circular snailing on the Weltzeit sub seconds

    Was hoping you would see this @tempocalypse;

    I have heard the pattern on your Sinn (and my Sozhou and ZunJue) called a Scallop guilloche, from the pattern on their shell

    That's as good a name for it as any.

    Really like that A.Shorokhoff. Been tempted by his designs many times. Especially the 3133 ones, but this is also very nice.

    Hmm... none of my current watches have it.

    This Longines did, though -

    This style of decoration is usually a bit fancy for me, but done by hand it introduces an element (of what? wonder?) that suddenly makes it very appealling to me. People might enjoying this video from RGM about doing guilloche dials by hand:



    ps this one please, I think:
