Decorating by hand engraving or by the rose engine lathe (tour à guillocher)

If the restoration of mechanisms and cases requires the reproduction of pieces that were originally decorated, we can use traditional methods like hand engraving for anthems, inscriptions and other motifs and the rose engine lathe (tour à guillocher). The latter can be converted to a straight line engine with the use of a straight line chuck.
