The Tyrannosaurus rex pattern is created by a number of difficult crafts and is vividly presented on the watch cover, as if peeking out through the porthole. The head and scales are made of leather mosaic intarsia: thousands of colored leather fragments of various shapes are all hand-cut and pasted one by one to faithfully restore the original appearance of the work. The protruding eyes of the dinosaur are clearly visible from both sides of the cover, made of cabochon-cut Grand Feu enamel. The lower jaw and tongue are inlaid with leather detailing process: small pieces are cut out from the leather of various colors that have been thinned to 0.5 mm thick, and then spliced on the enamel base. The finishing touch of this miniature leather work is the green matte crocodile leather strap fixed to the rectangular stirrup-shaped lugs, making the overall design more distinctive.
