CRAFTSMANSHIP

Fundamental to the creation of a fine timepiece is the skill of a watchmaker. The vocation of watchmaking harmoniously brings together art, design, science, and engineering to build a piece of machinery that is not only practical and precise, but also beautiful enough to wear. 

Between sourcing the finest materials, applying the latest breakthroughs in innovation, and painstakingly assembling hundreds of components, the passion for haute horology within our ateliers is palpable and is ultimately expressed through our exquisite creations.

Materials

To craft our prestigious timepieces, only the finest metals and materials are sourced and selected for flawless aesthetics and optimal performance.

Stainless Steel

Stainless Steel

When a fine wristwatch is not only expected to have impeccable design and precision, but is also built to withstand tough environments, stainless steel is the ideal material for its construction. Distinctly attractive, robust, and corrosion resistant, stainless steel is the leading choice for luxury timepieces with a masculine and sporty appeal. High-grade 316N steel is particularly exceptional and prized among the majority of Swiss watch manufactures.

Titanium

Titanium

Originally exclusively used within the aerospace industry, titanium has increasingly gained popularity among high-end watchmakers in the last few years. Specifically cherished for its excellent combination of durability, lightness, and corrosion-resistance, grade 5 titanium, however, is notably difficult to work with. Yet the element’s benefits and striking aesthetics are well worth the arduous effort needed for crafting a superlative timepiece.

Forged Carbon

Forged Carbon

Light as a feather and stronger than steel, forged carbon was born from a partnership between Lamborghini and Callaway Golf in an effort to create a revolutionary material that would be lighter, faster, and stronger than what was currently available. Weighing half as much as aluminum, yet three times stronger, forged carbon boasts the highest strength to weight ratio of any material and its lightness and strength are perfectly poised for use in haute horology applications.

Movements

At first glance, a movement inside the wristwatch’s case may go unnoticed, yet it is what gives the timepiece life and raison d'être. It should not be taken for granted the skill it requires to construct the hundreds of essential components that will seamlessly convene to beat at the heart of a timepiece.

Automatic Chronograph Movement

Automatic Chronograph Movement

The chronograph function of a timepiece is used to time a specific event via the center seconds-hand controlled by pushers affixed onto a watchcase. The pushers start, stop, and reset the seconds-hand while subsidiary dials record the lapsed hours and minutes. Driving a chronograph watch is typically an automatic chronograph movement that gains its power from the action of a wearer’s wrist rather than the need for manual winding.  The rotor of an automatic caliber is built to rotate freely so that any motion from the wrist in turns spins the rotor, thus self-winding the mainspring to provide power to the watch.

At GenevaTimepieces we equip our Pan American Chronograph line with one of the best and most reliable Swiss automatic chronograph movements ever made.

Tourbillon Movement

Tourbillon Movement

One of the most admirable complications ever to grace the haute horology field, the making of a tourbillon is an exemplary demonstration of a watchmaker’s prowess. A tourbillon houses the mechanical movement’s escapement and balance wheel in a rotating cage where the constant rotation serves to counteract the negative effects of gravity. A more elaborate version of the tourbillon — and the one R&D Luxury elects to make and utilize  — is the flying tourbillon mechanism where a one-sided anchor is used rather than a traditional dual bridge support on opposing sides. Our flying tourbillon movements, found on the Newton Genève Tourbillon and R&D Genève Tourbillon, boast a power reserve of 100 hours with only a single barrel.

Self-Winding Mechanical Complication Movements

Self-Winding Mechanical Complication Movements

Depending on the requirement of a collection, unique and exclusive in-house modules of complications are added to an automatic mechanical movement for increased functionality. One of the most distinguished proprietary movements from our ateliers in Switzerland is the one that operates the Great Ocean Road Worldtime collection, which is equipped with the world time complication to allow the wearer to keep track of the earth’s 24 time zones. Another notable caliber is found within the HD3 Three Minds timepiece, highlighting a very distinctive hours, minutes, and date display on the innovative timepiece.

Design

We honor the multiple facets of Swiss horlogerie by applying a spectrum of design forms to our collection of timepieces. From classic Newton Genève Tourbillon, to sporty R&D Genève, to futuristic HD3 Three Minds, each of our lines carry a distinct aesthetic code that embodies our quest for excellence.

Classical

Classical

A tribute to the classical and traditional hallmarks of watchmaking

Bearing the style codes once found on traditional timepieces from the 19th and early 20th centuries, Newton Genève Tourbillon effortlessly links two epochs by paying homage to classical watchmaking fundamentals while employing modern manufacturing techniques.
Newton Genève Tourbillon’s elegant round case fashioned in gold, blued steel Breguet-style hands, and guilloché dial set the perfect stage for its centerpiece: the tourbillon. Sitting gracefully just above the 6 o’clock position, the spellbinding flying tourbillon mechanism in constant rotation cannot help but attract admiring gazes and is emblematic of the manufacture’s passion for haute horology.

Innovative

A strong design identity that is contemporary and innovative

Unique to HD3 Three Minds is the exclusive Three Minds movement that reflects a flourishing and highly innovative watchmaking culture. Not only does the automatic movement provide the power, but it is also an integral part of the timepiece’s cutting-edge design – boldly ushering in a new era in progressive haute horology.

The unexpected and imaginative display found on HD3 Three Minds uses three rotating discs for the hours, minutes, and seconds for a surprising way to tell the time. The bodywork of the watch was imagined and executed with the same pursuit of perfection applied to the technical sophistication of the caliber development.  HD3 Three Minds’ avant-garde aesthetics is fueled by the boundless creative spirit of its trio of designers.

A masculine and sporty attitude inspired by motorsports

Comprising of several different models, the R&D Genève collection proposes a selection of quintessential luxury sports watches. The Pan American Chronograph, Pikes Peak Tourbillon, and Great Ocean Worldtime collections offer wearers timepieces that are equipped with diverse functionalities and complications, yet all driven by the thrilling spirit of auto-racing.

From design details such as chrono pushers mimicking car pedals to the use of innovative materials like forged carbon typically found on exotic supercars, the form of the R&D Genève timepieces are matched only by the complex engines running beneath their hoods.
