Special Reception 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
[HR][/HR]Little Treasury Jewelers is hosting an event welcoming Riccardo Zannetti to the US for his first retail store visit in this country. Mr. Zannetti will present his collection and demonstrate the traditional craft techniques used in his workshops. A reception featuring Italian wine and light fare will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Little Treasury is just one of three authorized dealers for Zannetti in the US and is proud to host this first store visit.

Zannetti Handmade Watches operates from a personal laboratory located in Via Monte d’Oro, in the Campo Marzio area of Rome. In their workshops they produce timepieces that are unique and impossible to copy, using age-old techniques of engraving, champlevé, micromosaic, and other traditional methods. The harmony of the old-style workshop and their products stand in stark contrast to the computer generated designs and CNC machined timepieces that so dominate the current fine watch scene.

And he will actually hand sketch custom dial designs in response to customer requests.
