Andrea Pirlo, The Architect
This is the third customization I’ve done with Artisans de Genève. They’ve become like a second family; they know me so well. For this new project, I wanted to keep the codes we had developed together in the past, the blue and rose gold, the skeletonized cut, by adapting them to my Aquanaut® model.
I’m a great lover of Patek Philippe and the Aquanaut® model, which reminds me of a pebble, the sea, and freedom. The artisans have worked on every detail with the most outstanding care. I can’t believe it, the colors, the finishing touches… everything… my personalization ultimately reflects me as a person, and my story.
Andrea wanted a skeleton version of his 324 caliber to be able to admire each piece through a different angle. We started by realizing a special cut of the movement and then reworked each element in the finest detail: from beveling to satin-finish and circular-graining, to give an harmonious allure. The final touch, the skeletonized gold rotor, brings depth and contrast to the anthracite movement.
