«La Blausee»

« La Blausee » is the encounter between our craftsmen and a watch enthusiast who wanted his timepiece to gather the essential values of traditions and watchmaking, while capturing the unique shades of a place that resonates with him. The serenity that prevails in Blausee has inspired us a return to origins: a skeleton version of the Rolex Daytona with a manual winding.
This personalization has been requested by a private customer. It is a sample of our know-how and of the personalization services made upon request of our customers. If you would like tu customize your timepiece in the same way or following your wishes, please contact us.

Custom Rolex Daytona La Blausee
Paying an homage to the classic timepieces and to the first Daytonas, with their manual winding, was a tremendous challenge. It took us two years of research and development to create a barrel that would meet our expectations. The barrel replaces the automatic winding, allowing « La Blausee » to have a power reserve of 72 hours.

An ode to Blausee

We wanted to reconnect with this precious gesture: the manual winding. A ritual that gives way to emotion, a unique moment combining the vibration of the movement, the resonance of the barrel and the gear of the ratchet.
