Venice is famous world wide for centuries of glass making and Antica Murrina is renowned for closely following the old tradition of working the unmistakable Murano glass and creating exquisite pieces of jewelry with it.
Some of the most popular accessories it makes are the Antica Murrina watches which combine functionality with some of the most exquisite glass patterns one can imagine into a beautiful work of art.
It was the Romans who discovered the process of manufacturing the Murano glass, but it only became known worldwide in the 18th century when it became so evolved that it allowed some of the most intricate designs imaginable.
The ‘millefiori’ technique is the most complicated of all and with it artist create the famous millefiori beads. The process involves melting together thin canes of colored class and put into a mould. The result is more than spectacular.

The San Roco watch is a real masterpiece of Venetian glasswork that will capture all the attention with a beautiful Millefiori glass presented on a croco stamped leather band.
The Accademia is a sophisticated and alluring masterpiece that will adorn your wrist with a chic addition. Other watches were inspired by the Japanese movement.
The glass pattern of every Antica Murrina watch is created manually by Venice’s top glass working artists meaning that each watch is unique. Although following the same design, the artist adds subtle variations which particularize it.
