The Rough Matt Diver Project

The search for beauty is a permanent pursuit. Our exclusive combination of matt and mirror polishing has been made possible thanks to the close teamwork of our polishers and watchmakers. Being able to blend matt and gloss in such a way that none of them takes precedence over the other requires the highest skills.
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 to customize your timepiece in the same way or following your wishes, please contact us. Please note that due to the limited capacity of our workshops, we are not able to satisfy every demands so please accept our apologies in advance.

The Dual Tone polishing is our exclusive inhouse technique. The bracelet, the top and the bottom of the case are sandblasted by hand and each side is mirror finished, giving the timepiece a unique contrast. Unlike any PVD matt finish, the sandblasting brings a subtle satin look that perfectly completes the glow of the mirror. Switzerland has the best polishers in the world, but few of them can make such a technical and artistic feat. It takes 126 hours and more than 14 of the more skilled craftsmen to reach this delicate balance.

Blue ceramic bezel

The Bezel

The Rolex one-way ceramic bezel is a technological masterpiece. It is specifically designed to remain intact even in most difficult situations. It always shows the right time with perfect accuracy. We developed a Sea Blue, with orange indexes made by hand with a needle.

The Dial

We applied a 12h/6h brush before plating the dial in blue PVD. Each point is circled in orange and gets a luminous material that glows in the dark in blue. It took 7 crafts to achieve.
Gold rotor

The Rotor

We put our exclusive signature, a 21ct massive gold rotor, made by hand. It wears a Geneva Stripe pattern and has a circular polishing.

The Balance
of Contrasts

Naturally Elegant

The Rough Matt Diver Project wears orange and blue colors: blue dial, orange indexes, sea blue ceramic bezel with orange indexes. We replaced the hands by very special shaped ones. Each hand has been lacquered in matt black. We applied the hours and seconds hands a gorgeous domed orange lacquer. Each hand is individually painted by hand. Finally, we applied our signature, a transparent case back engraved, numbered and polished by hand.
