Description
Svend Andersen is a true master watchmaker who you may never have heard of. He started his career in watchmaking in the late 1950s. Mr. Andersen became famous in Switzerland, earning himself the moniker “watchmaker of the impossible” and simultaneously getting himself fired from his job at Gubelin, when he appeared on a Swiss television show with a clock that he built inside a bottle in his spare time! That was in 1969. He went on to spend a decade in the ateliers of Patek Philippe, before finally starting his eponymous brand in 1979.

If you have heard of Mr. Andersen, it is almost surely because he is a co-founder of the Academy of Independent Horologists (A.H.C.I.), which he started in the mid-1980s, which supports gifted and creative watchmakers. A.H.C.I. exhibits each year at The Basel Watch Fair and has helped many watchmakers turn their avant-garde ideas into watches and into brands/businesses.

This “Krone” model was made in 10 pieces only. With 44mm 18k white gold case with sapphire front and display back crystals, this watch makes a big statement.

Enamel dial, metallic gray, with radiating engraved pattern unique to this Krone model. Huge white gold stylized arabic numerals and huge white gold dauphine hands.

Andersen Geneve in-house 17 jewel automatic winding movement with decorated 18k winding rotor.

Watch is on very gently worn original Andersen Geneve black crocodile strap with 18k white gold “Krone” signed buckle. Condition is like new with box and papers.

If you are into truly rare watches built with a personal touch by a master watchmaker, this is a great opportunity to own a special watch.
