Artisans de Geneve has turned a UK 1:1 replica Rolex belonging to World Cup-winning Italian goalkeeper Gigi Buffon into a single-handed timepiece.
The Gigi x Heure Solitaire was created using Buffon’s perfect replica Rolex Datejust 41 as a donor watch.
The AAA super clone watch’s blue-tinted sapphire crystal 12-hour dial is broken down into five-minute increments, which the single hand tracks against, and reveals the skeletonized movement decorated with beadblasted and brushed finishes beneath.
The bezel of Swiss made replica Rolex UK has been replaced with a new stainless steel piece decorated with clous de Paris – or hobnail – guilloche, while the ‘monohand’ is hand-beveled, flame-blued and features a red hand-painted tip.
Artisans de Geneve also machined indentations on the case flanks.
The transformation – which can be duplicated on request – costs CHF 33,250 (approximately $34,337 USD).
