Suzanne Rohr is best known as one of the few enamellists with the ability to produce such exquisite work for Patek Philippe. Her attention to detail is second to none, and her experience in the technique of painting on enamel has made her work perhaps the most desirable for Patek Philippe watches. Each of the watches painted by Suzanne Rohr is a unique piece.

In June of this year, Christie's New York sold a pocket watch depicting Pierre-Auguste Renoir's "Two Sisters" by Suzanne Rohr, which set a record as it beat its $180 000 high estimate.
