“Lenny Kravitz LK01”

We have always had a great respect for Lenny Kravitz’s work and it was a great challenge to shape a watch to his image. Together we made the extraordinary bet to combine modernism with reliability, while preserving the features of classic watches. We also wanted the case itself to be a unique piece, blending the universe of watchmaking with musical arts.

Service not available

Because we provide crafts services made in a very limited capacity, Artisans de Genève is not able to satisfy all demands.

The LK01 timepiece blends modernity with classicism, while bringing vintage touches inspired by Lenny Kravitz’s favorite models. The case of the original Rolex Daytona 116523 has been treated in black DLC. The ceramic bezel was replaced by a handmade golden bakelite bezel. The dial of the LK01 Model, also modified by hand, shows gold markings and timers as well as the famous red Daytona marking that we preserved.

Portrait of Lenny Kravitz with the LK01 watch
I’ve been collecting watches for more than 20 years now and have always had a special affection for classic timepieces, loaded with history and life. When I met Artisans de Genève, I immediately seized the opportunity to create my own version of the classic watch. It was also extremely important that the timepiece was to be made by true experts without any compromise in the quality.
