ANDERSEN Genève, in partnership with Edward Sexton, one of the world’s finest tailors, presents a “Unique Piece” of the iconic Quotidiana watch to support the Only Watch 2021 charity event. This timepiece exhibits the supreme artistry and elegance central to the work of these celebrated ateliers.
Founded in 1980, ANDERSEN Genève is renowned for its ingenuity and craftsmanship, often working on a bespoke basis for collectors worldwide. Edward Sexton, a legendary figure on Savile Row since 1969, continues to make garments of unprecedented quality, defined by beautiful handcraft and his trademark twist of English eccentricity.
This one-of-a-kind creation combines a unique collaborative vision with the skills of artisan case-makers, watchmakers, hand engravers and guilloché masters. These masters in their fields have combined to create a watch of rare charm and character. Beneath Sexton’s needle-and-thread signature at 12 o’clock is a disc of 21ct Blue Gold, displaying the days of the week in constant motion.
Besides the timepiece itself, the winning bidder will also be offered a “made-to-measure” suit, made in London by Edward Sexton. Also included is the opportunity to visit both ateliers. Firstly at Edward Sexton in London, he will choose materials, colours, buttons etc to be used in his made-to-measure suit. Secondly, at the atelier of ANDERSEN Genève in the heart of Geneva, he will discover how his timepiece was created and assembled.
