Geneva watchmaker Golay Spierer presents the HEROICA TEMPUS capsule collection, in partnership with Gaël Bonnel Sanchez, French designer and creator.

The idea is unprecedented: to design and manufacture unique watches based on authentic documents signed by historical figures.

The concept, imagined Mr. Gaël Bonnel Sanchez, partner and initiator of this collection, is simple, creative, rare and exclusive. With an autograph expert, they select an authentic signed document. Whether it’s an artist, a politician, a scientist, a person from history or contemporary.

The document is entrusted to Marianne Dubuis, recognized artist with more than 40 years of profession in the traditional Swiss technique of cutting the Pays d’Enhaut. The original signature is taken to realize the dial of the watch.

Each watch is unique, personalized according to the life of the signatory. The signature of each personality is used only once, so there will be only one Einstein watch, a Mozart, a Leonardo Da Vinci …

Their first timepiece is dedicated to Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte to celebrate the 250th anniversary of his birth.
