Artisans de Genève he designed every single modification and made every element in such a way that they could best reflect the refined style of the champion and the technicality of his football. The smallest detail has become an essential value.

The openwork dial and its pure lines reveal every detail of the skeletonized movement, while the rose gold indexes enhance the piece. Finally, the case presents an exclusive combination of know-how: it features polished bevels and cleverly combines brushed and satin-finished elements and sandblasted lugs.

These are the words of the player Andrea Pirlo: “I've always been passionate about watchmaking. Very early on, I started collecting watches. Through time and watches, I have learned to value and recognize the know-how and countless trades that lie behind each timepiece. I care about the details, especially the most refined and hidden ones, and I found this same passion of mine in the work of Artisans de Genève. What I like most about my watch is that it is unmatched, it resonates with me and my career. It's a work of art. "
