ANDERSEN Genève x ASPREY “Heures du Monde” Limited Edition

ANDERSEN Genève has launched a special edition Heures du Monde watch in partnership with Asprey, the iconic British luxury Maison.

Limited to just 24 pieces, the “Heures du Monde” is a romantic fusion of ANDERSEN Genève’s unique design and technical DNA with the storied heritage of the House of Asprey.

The ANDERSEN Genève x ASPREY “Heures du Monde” is full of details and inspirations that connoisseurs of both brands will recognise. A restrained 39mm worldtimer with a curvaceous, three-part case in 5N red gold, it features distinctive, angular lugs seen previously in important ANDERSEN Genève timepieces like the Secular Perpetual Calendar (1996) and the Orbita Lunae (2002).

The dial, in 21 carat Blue Gold, is decorated with a complex guilloché engraving inspired by an historic Asprey engine turning pattern. To achieve Blue Gold, the precious metal is mixed with iron elements and heat-treated to turn it a radiant shade of blue.

Asprey’s intricate diamond-shaped pattern, a brand signature never before seen on a watch dial, is then engraved into this surface by a process of traditional hand guilloché, by the finest Swiss Artisans.

The ANDERSEN GENÈVE x ASPREY “Heures du Monde” also features the independent Geneva brand’s distinctive, modernist A-shaped hands, rendered in a perfect brushed finish.

The caseback is again a restrained affair with a highly decorated automatic movement boasting Côtes de Genève and perlage decorative finishes.

The movement has been painstakingly finished by hand with special polishing of the wheels, ratchet teeth and mirror polished screws. The rotor itself is a piece of art, again in Blue Gold with a hand guilloché decoration in the historic “engine turning” Asprey pattern.

Every component of the Heures du Monde watch is manufactured in Switzerland, whether in the ANDERSEN Genève Atelier on the banks of the Rhône, or by Artisan specialists in Geneva or La Chaux-de-Fonds.
