Ateliers de Monaco
Ateliers deMonaco is a manufacture of luxury wristwatches based in Geneva. The brand was founded in 2008 by co-founders Pim Koeslag, Robert van Pappelendam and Pier Stas. Thanks to its faithfulness to the noblest criteria of haute horlogerie as well as a passion for mechanical innovations, Ateliers deMonaco won its place amongst the rare and recognized independent watch manufactures. Beyond the artistic vision of any new and original masterpiece, men and know-how are at the heart of the brand’s creations, each stamped with bienfacture and excellence. Daring innovation is a constant quest but it should never be separated from an outstanding watchmaking savoir-faire.
From in-house mechanical movements to hand-crafted decorative components, evocative design features to chamfered and polished bridges, special engraving to sculpted skeleton dials through the appealing shape of a case, each element brilliantly showcases Ateliers deMonaco’s technical expertise and passion for haute horlogerie. The hand finishing is “the added ingredient from the soul” which gives its uniqueness and signature to the creations. That’s why every individual Ateliers deMonaco timepiece is carefully polished, brushed and engraved by hand. In some cases the process can take over a 100 hours per watch.
The brand’s masterpieces feature unique artworks and always come in very limited and numbered editions. Among the numerous exclusive and iconic creations, Ateliers deMonaco had the honor to create a unique piece for H.S.H Prince Albert II of Monaco. Inspired by Princess Charlene of Monaco, La Sirène features a very refined and natural mother of pearl at the center of the dial, highlighting 48 lozenge shaped topaz stones set in a King Protea pattern, the flower of South Africa. And finally the Tourbillon – Grand Prix de Mai 1965 – inspired by the official poster of the 1965 Monaco Grand Prix.
From the Tourbillon to the Admiral Chronographe Flyback through the Poinçon de Genève, Ateliers deMonaco offers 6 exceptional mechanical ranges on top of a bespoke private collection. Ateliers deMonaco is particularly proud to be the fifth brand bearing the demanding Geneva seal – a standard of excellence stemming from the tradition of haute horlogerie and rewarding high-end Geneva based watch brands. Since 2008, Ateliers deMonaco has placed great emphasis on the development of new complicated mechanical movements, such as its own tourbillon minute repeater which let the brand entered in a very exclusive group of watchmakers having the ability to design and manufacture such a complication in-house.
