Each project is unique. It springs from a vision, an emotion, a story, or a precious moment in life. Each realization is a new challenge for our craftsmen: to make a dream that was thought and imagined for years, come true. Our craftsmen exchange extensively with each client to collect the finest detail that will bring the personalization project to life
The Haouk.L Challenge is fore and foremost a delicate tribute to the vintage timepieces cherished by our client. Transforming his timepiece was a major challenge. Each piece was entirely reworked in our Swiss workshop. We have modified the original pushers to replace them with the iconic MK millerighe ones typical of the first daytonas. The bakelite bezel, the dome glass and the jubilee bracelet complete the vintage allure of this unique project.
This project bears unique and personal details, the skeleton dial was thoroughly though and executed, the piece offers a discrete opening of the counters at 6h and 9h.
Our client has chosen to engrave personal details on the rotor and the back of the case.
I have been into art, engineering and collecting for a while. My grandfather is a painter, it got me into art from early days. I am a mechanical engineer, am always fascinated with mechanical works. That two things brought me into collecting classic cars, motorcycles, and recently watches. Artisans de Genève has brought all of my passions: beautiful artwork, mechanically amazing, and best of all we made a unique piece only for me. I have 3 boys, their names meaning is Sun, Star, and Sky, I made them draw their own symbols that appear on the rotor of the timepiece and really appreciate that Artisans de Genève could realize this one-a-kind engraving and make it even more special. I want my children to appreciate the work and effort behind making a piece of art. At the end I want to pass this special timepiece to them and make it a part of our heritage. Hopefully GWA01 will continue with GWA02, GWA03, and so on.
Each piece is for us a new adventure. To share with our passionate clients our craftsmanship and passion for fine details and finishings, even the most unnoticeable element is an immense pride.
