Hello,

I am new to engraving world and I would like to get one of my watch engraved by specialist, before that, I have some questions which will help me to know exactly what shall I ask about when I contact artists

1- what are the engraving types? I noticed two types, first one who engrave the drawing and the second type who engrave the surrounding to show the drawing -which is more complicated, am I correct?

2- what do you call below type of engraving?

Hi Sir,
I posted pics of a 1945 colt official police fully engraved and was told you might be able to identify the engraver. Any help is greatly appreciated

The link Mr Bleile posted is a great help to new engravers such as myself, it gives you a visual example of the styles and terms used in discussion. I referred back to it constantly after I found it.

Best idea would be to show the engraver pictures of the style you want. That way there is no confusion about styles & names.

Yes you are right, but I wanted to have some level in order to be able to speak the same language :)
