THE ART OF TAILORING
Here is a selection of our work :
The steps of customisation
Here are the three phases you go through in creating your watch:
The path to creation
This first step consists of a meeting to find out your tastes, your experience, what you like about watchmaking, your ideas and your dreams.
We are here to guide you, accompany you and establish a common language to enable you to express, choose and create.
Over the course of the few weeks of the creative process, we will express your your wishes with the help of computer-generated images.
Each new sketch is an opportunity to confirm your choices, to make new ones and to explore the limits of your project.
The manufacture of the watch
The manufacturing process combines craftsmanship, techniques and art.
The project is transformed into a set of design plans, specifications and specifications and descriptions for twenty or so craftsmen.
Over the course of the weeks, we illustrate each stage of the manufacturing process.
We animate the dialogue between craftsmen, artists and technicians. Each of them working together to forge the soul of the watch.
It is during this period that you give your watch a name.
It is in our workshops that we proceed to the final assembly of the watch.
Beyond the technical aspects, there is a very strong emotional emotional dimension that brings the watch to life.
Born in 1782 in the Joux Valley, Jacques David Golay established himself in Geneva as a watchmaker in 1829.
He is the great-grandfather of my great-grandfather. His son Auguste Golay, founded in 1837 the house Golay-Leresche.
According to the foundation act, this company is "a watchmaker's business", it buys the supplies necessary for the manufacture necessary for the manufacture of watches assembled in its workshops.
At the end of the 19th century, the company took the name of Golay Fils & Stahl, it is with the companies Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin the flagship of Geneva watchmaking.
The first watch, a steel chronograph bearing the N° 2001 - 1001, is delivered on November 23, 2001 and marks the delivered on November 23, 2001 and symbolically marks the beginning of the activity.
After 20 years of existence, we are at the origin of more than more than 160 original and unique creations.
