Vitreous or Grand Feu enamel is the art of delicately fusing glass to metal using heat. A disc of copper, silver or gold is fired in the kiln at over 800 degrees between the application of multiple layers of powdered glass. This process is repeated seven or eight times to achieve the correct depth before the final firing renders the dial with a high sheen finish.

Seen here is the Model 1 with Teal enamel dial. The colour takes its name from the Eurasian teal, whose feathers are often used in fishing lures.
