ALEXANDER KLINGBEIL: Both are Audemars Piguet models, which we have redesigned into unique pieces according to customer requirements. For the watch we call “drip-drop”, we sandblasted the bracelet and case and then coated it with DLC, which gives the Royal Oak a fantastically beautiful feel. The dial was sanded smoothly before it was given the very elaborate teardrop print. The casino clock was commissioned by an Asian customer who is passionate about games and therefore wants to put together a whole case with a wide variety of clocks on this topic. We are contributing one of them.

And the processing of the original dial is enormous. All in all, it takes at least six weeks to make a Blaken, but we've also been working on a watch for half a year.
