TELEMARK IN THE SNOW

TELEMARK IN THE SNOW

Telemark in the snow

As England struggles with the cold and sometimes staff can’t make it in we press on regardless. Snow makes the world a light-box so there is no excuse for poor photography. When light hits snow it bounces around the crystals and air pockets, some of it reaching our eyes. We perceive it as white because snow does not absorb any particular wavelength and all wavelengths equally mixed make white. The Telemark dial colour is white but not quite. If the dial was (proper) white the watch would look cheap so here it has been muddied a little to give a hint of vintage which also makes it look more like snow. Snow has essentially a non-reflective texture so to emulate this we treated the dials with an extra matt clear-coat lacquer to remove unwanted reflections. That, citizens of style, is cool!
