I’ve explored glaciers for years… it’s been my constant obsession. One in particular is rooted in my memory: Arolla, in Switzerland. I go there as often as I can and it was the main inspiration for my watch personalization. I wanted to recreate this specific blue of the ice caves, their transparency and its fusion of materials. It is a unique place, out of time.Mr. Patrick A
To me watchmaking is all about passion and time passing.I have spent my life running behind time. When I became a father, temporality took another meaning. I have wanted to catch time, and associate it with my life moments. My timepiece is more than an object, it bears witness to the moment, my moments.. Personalization enhances all the details that make this adventure so unique and different.Mr. Patrick. A.
We developed an original cut-out of the caliber 4130, which is complemented by the geometric X-shaped skeletonized rotor. The entire framework of the movement is enhanced by an array of know-how: beveling, polishing and sandblasting.
The automatic and chrono bridges are also the fruit of new developments by our artisans. To meet the challenge, we asked the expert Rubber B to develop an exclusive genuine rubber strap in transparent blue, to give a unique signature to our client’s customization.
Artisans de Genève transformed my timepiece — choosing the perfect materials and finishings to rewrite the Arolla universe, like I wanted. I have the same as when I am on the mountains, I rediscover my watch whenever I gaze at it, I’ve got nothing but admiration for this amazing craftsmanship.Mr. Patrick A
