Ateliers deMonaco Poinçon de Genève Saphir

Swiss luxury watch brand Ateliers deMonaco adds a new model, limited to 18 pieces, to its Poinçon de Genève collection. Available in 18K white and rose gold and featuring a beautiful sapphire dial, this timepiece is the perfect blend of aesthetic appeal and technical refinement.

A watch bearing the Poinçon de Genève is not only an instrument to measure time; it is a work of art. To obtain this recognition, each watch component must be made with the utmost care and be finely decorated.  The hallmark is a symbol of exceptional aesthetic quality and guarantees that the purchased product is flawless and unique. This timepiece with its pure and dynamic lines features a beautiful sapphire dial, which enables to see the perlage decoration on the movement. Its lozenge indexes and its hand applied roman indexes accentuate its elegance.
To power this timepiece, the watchmakers of Ateliers deMonaco have equipped it with the in-house and patented dMc-708 calibre featuring a 38-hour power reserve and driving central hour, minute and second hands. The ultra-thin characteristics of this calibre enabled the brand to encase it within a 9,2mm case. The sapphire crystal case back enables to admire the hand-decorated bridges adorned with a delicate Côtes de Genève finishing.

To acquire the Poinçon de Genève, each movement from this limited edition, had to be assembled, adjusted and encased in our manufacture in the Canton of Geneva. In addition to this certification, this new timepiece also includes patented “Freebeat” adjustment system. In a conventional regulation system, pins on both side of the hairspring are used to regulate how much it can wind and unwind hence regulating the speed of the balance wheel. By allowing the hairspring to bounce against these pins, in combination to gravity forces, the unfortunate side effect of these collisions is that it interferes with the precision of the movement itself.
The newly patented “Freebeat” regulation system regulates the length of the hairspring with an adjustable crémaillère (straight bar with teeth on one edge, allowing it to be fixated at different length) obsoleting the need for the pins and thus avoiding the interference.

Finally, the watch is presented with a black or a brown hand-stitched alligator leather strap with either 18K white or rose gold ardillon buckle. Every watch stamped with the Poinçon de Genève comes with a certificate of origin, which includes a unique authentication key and QR code delivered by Timelab. These enable the purchaser to check the authenticity of the document and of the watch.
