“Honey Pearl”

Artisans de Genève is an independent company specialized in the personalization of timepieces. We are not affiliated with PATEK PHILIPPE SA nor authorized by them to intervene on their products for any reason whatsoever. This personalization was ordered by a customer, who owns a Patek Philippe® timepiece, for his private use. It is an example of our know-how and the personalization services we offer at our customers' request.

Story

« What I like the most in a timepiece is the aesthetic, the allure, the curves. I imagined my personalization with a technical look embodied by a skeleton movement that would add an intense touch. ». M. T.A
The very essence of our craft is to convey emotions and memories through the customization of a client’s timepiece. A few months ago, an enthusiastic collector, passionate about designs, materials and colors, contacted us to craft a very special project for him. This would be inspired by the Pearl project, a previous personalization based on the Nautilus® 5711 model. The project was a pure stylistic exercise: to skeletonize our client’s caliber based on a unique color and material combination: rose gold, blue and anthracite gray . We agreed upon a powerful and timeless design and named it «The Honey Pearl».

Development
& Innovation

« It was important for me to go beyond a color combination with a whole new dimension through the blend of materials, colors and curves to create a perfect harmony. » M. T.A
Our client defined a color scheme and materials for a perfect balance. He chose blue for the dial combined with the rose case and bracelet contrasted by a slight touch of red. The harmony blends wonderfully with the graphic lines of the skeleton movement.

The Making

We called upon a variety of craftsmen to achieve a result that exceeded our client’s expectations. Each part of the 26-330 SC movement was painstakingly cut, satin-finished and delicately beveled by hand. The original gold rotor was also finely skeletonized and beveled by hand with a circular satin-finish. With our client, we decided to keep the original elegant blend of the satin-brush and mirror-polish finish.
