Artisans de Genève – The Tribute to 6263 Albino Project

The custom watch specialist Artisans de Genève introduces The Tribute to 6263 Albino Project. The personalization project is a watchmaking adventure, an encounter with a watch enthusiast who was inspired by «The Oyster® Albino» and its monochrome silver dial. He wanted to capture the singularity and uniqueness of this iconic model while lending his watch all the character of the Albino.

The ceramic bezel has been replaced with a bakelite one crafted in Artisans de Genève’s Swiss workshop. The dial has been reworked with a hand-finished silver sunray pattern.

The counters feature three distinctly shaped hands: a tie at 3 o’clock, a straight stick at 6 o’ clock, and a pointed stick at 9 o’clock entirely flame-blued, rare and traditional know-how giving them a unique color.

As a tribute to the original design, the traditional pushers have been replaced by «Millerighe» MK00 pushers crafted in their workshop.

Artisans de Genève has modified the original 4130 movement into a self-winding one giving the owner’s timepiece a 72-hour power reserve.

For a unique finish, the balance bridge, the heart of the movement has been entirely designed by the Swiss craftsmen and displays several high watchmaking finishes: extra-fine, mirror-polished, and inner angles.
