Giberg Haute Horlogerie Watches – Models with Technical Specifications, Price, Brand Details, History, News and Archives

Giberg Haute Horlogerie

Giberg Haute Horlogerie brand was founded by the Swiss artist Andreas Altmann. Based in Bienne, this high end Swiss luxury watch brand made its debut at Basel-world 2018 jewellery and watch exhibition.

Andreas Altmann is renowned for creating masterpiece sculptures under his Giberg Swiss Noble Forge label. Most famous among these sculptures is the mythical beast Ahton, which is inspired by the Nordic mythology. It is a unique sculpture entirely hand crafted by the artist and his Giberg Swiss Noble Forge team over a period of almost five years. Five kilograms of solid gold were required to produce the mystical beast, which is studded with 7739 diamonds weighing a total of 108 carats.

Ahton by Giberg Swiss Noble Forge

In 2018, five years after unveiling Ahton, master jeweller Andreas Altmann applied his creativity and expertise to watches suffused with Haute Horlogerie.

Like an extension of the Giberg Swiss Noble Forge, the new Giberg Haute Horlogerie brand is an elegant demonstration of its mastery of time, just as Ahton was proof of its artistic dexterity, and is a worthy guardian of unique expertise. Andreas Altmann’s exceptional and original watches were unveiled at the Baselworld show in 2018.

A trained goldsmith and gemsetter, Andreas Altmann endeavors to create individual pieces in highly limited editions, for which he has no limits when it comes to meeting a customer’s desires. The master jeweller uses the most precious materials available to create incredible sculptures, each influenced in one way or another by history.

Wisdom, power, the strength and courage of heroes, or the virtues are some of the subjects he chooses to give remarkable physical form. With its cutting-edge technical innovation and keen artistic vision, Giberg Swiss Noble Forge has become one of the world’s most accomplished specialists in handling and crafting the finest materials. This recognition is already a powerful affirmation of the haute horlogerie and joaillerie credentials of existing and future watches produced by the Giberg watchmaking brand.

Giberg Swiss Noble Forge has imbued its new Giberg Haute Horlogerie brand with its artistic expertise and brought a new vision of the art of reading the time. The company’s static art is thus brought to life by the calibre of Giberg Haute Horlogerie watches.

This hand-wound mechanical movement, entirely designed in-house by the brand, offers a 72-hour power reserve provided by two barrels that drive the flying tourbillon positioned at 6 o’clock.

Giberg Haute Horlogerie Olora and Alagaro

The newly established luxury watch brand Giberg Haute Horlogerie will be presenting a collection of three timepieces – Niura, Olora and Alagaro – at Baselworld 2018. These timepieces are powered with an in-house caliber made for and by the brand, the Giberg Flying Tourbillon “Trilevis 6118” hand-wound mechanical movement.

From the debut watch collections, we have already covered Niura, a feminine, high-jewellery watch creation. Next two timepieces are Olora and Alagaro.

Showcasing the House’s trademark distinctive visual identity with its sapphire dial and caseback, these two watches invite the eye to marvel at the spellbinding dance of the flying tourbillon.

Giberg Olora

Olora, the brand’s second women’s watch, is also powered with the Flying Tourbillon “Trilevis 6118” caliber like the other watch models in the debut collection. Trapped between the transparent sapphire case-back and dial, the tourbillon seems to dance in the air under twinkling stars.

Seventy brilliant-cut diamonds are set in the white gold 40.55mm-diameter case. The blue ceramic flange echoes the sapphire hour-marker at 11 o’clock, while the case-middle is decorated with a flock of hand-sculpted swans gliding in line.

The attachments set in a swan shape with 64 diamonds bridge the gap between the case and the white calfskin strap. An elegant and refined ode to femininity, the Olora is a single original piece that can be custom-made to order.

Giberg Haute Horlogerie Niura

Established by Andreas Altmann, Bienne based atelier Giberg Swiss Noble Forge has now entered into luxury watch industry by creating the Giberg Haute Horlogerie brand to produce refined timepieces that combine fine watch making technique with sculptural art.

The first timekeeping piece from this venture is an elegant feminine watch with a delicate, Russian-inspired name: Niura.

Encrusted with 2,156 diamonds, this dazzling high-jewellery complication watch is a nod to a glorious age in which jewellery fused both art and breath-taking beauty, mirroring the lifestyles of the times.

To equip this timepiece, Andreas Altmann and his team developed a specific manual-winding mechanical movement named the Giberg Flying Tourbillon “Trilevis 6118” Manufacture Calibre, fitted with streamlined red hour and minute hands.

The tourbillon dial at 6 o’clock features ball bearings and is powered by two barrels mounted in series at 2 o’clock and 10 o’clock, lending the watch a power reserve of 72 hours. The dial and caseback are made from glare-free sapphire, allowing the wearer to watch the mechanical ballet unfurl from any angle.

The case measures 35mm in diameter and is nestled in a majestic structure of 47 × 97 mm. The watch is encrusted with 2,156 diamonds for a total of 8.7 carats, and is embellished with a ruby cabochon crown that sits to the right, with another decorative crown positioned on the left for an exquisitely subtle and elegant symmetrical effect.

The case pivots on an axis with a moving diamond-set arm, like hinges that wrap snugly around the wrist, perfectly encircling the wearer’s arm.

A fine structure, entirely set with diamonds, links the edges of the case to the lizard leather strap, on which a diamond-studded drop balances delicately.

The timepiece showcased here is in 5N red gold, set with 2,156 diamonds  and 76 rubies, mounted on a garnet-coloured lizard leather strap. Other customizable colours will be made available upon ordering.
