Founded by a woman in 1949 and run by women today, DeLaneau is dedicated to bespoke women's watches and renowned for its Grand Feu enamel dials.
DeLaneau understands what women want. And when it comes to fantasies of the horological kind, the sky is the limit.
The journey of co-creation begins with a private consultation at DeLaneau’s boutique, located just off Geneva’s smart Rue de Rhône, overlooking the lake. Here, a client’s ideas are discussed with the creative team who, in turn, produce preliminary sketches until the client is completely satisfied with the artwork and the choice of material and precious gemstone combinations.
Clients are invited to participate in all stages of creation, and can even visit the enameller’s atelier, located on the first floor, to see how the in-house artist, Florence, mixes her powders to create her extraordinary miniature enamel paintings. Protected under sapphire crystal glass, these masterpieces will not lose their colour or vibrancy over the years.
The watch of your dreams does exist. At DeLaneau, you will be directly involved in the co-creation of a unique masterpiece brought to life by the hands of artisans exercising the highest level of craftsmanship and artistry available anywhere in the world.
With a limited production of just 50 bespoke watches a year, DeLaneau offers a selection of five different-shaped cases and an infinite array of precious stone settings, plus cuts to meet every taste. Every DeLaneau watch is equipped with a top-quality Swiss mechanical automatic movement sourced from Piguet and Claret, and tourbillon complications from Chronode.
