Marking the 10th Anniversary of Ateliers deMonaco

By Kristen Shirley

This story originally appeared in the January/February 2018 issue of Elite Traveler.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of Ateliers deMonaco, whose launch was the culmination of Fredérique Constant head watchmaker Pim Koeslag and CEO Peter Stas’s lifelong dream of creating a minute repeater. The brand focuses exclusively on high horology, blending Monaco’s enduring glamour with Swiss precision. In 10 short years it has earned four patents, including a perpetual calendar that is adjusted using only the crown, and achieved the prestigious Geneva Seal on multiple timepieces. Each watch is impeccably finished, undergoing over 100 hours of hand-polishing, making the movement as beautiful as the dials.

Tourbillon Casino de Monte-Carlo

Using its patented automatic Tourbillon XP1 movement, which holds one of the most precise tourbillons in the industry, this unique piece also highlights Ateliers deMonaco’s artistic prowess. An 18K white gold dial features three hand-engraved plates depicting the famous Belle Époque casino. The namesake tourbillon takes the place of the central fountain in front of the casino. $154,700

Quantième Perpétuel Turini

The patented movement is a gift to collectors everywhere, removing the difficulty and tools generally required to adjust a perpetual calendar. Push the crown to the desired setting, then turn the crown to make the adjustment. The partially skeletonized dial
allows you to admire the movement through a smoky or black sapphire. Each color is limited to 88 pieces. $34,600

La Sirène Rubis

It wouldn’t be a Monacan brand without a nod to the royal family. La Sirène is dedicated to Princess Charlene of Monaco. On the dial is the king protea, the national flower in her home country, South Africa, rendered in rubies, sapphires and diamonds. The watch features an automatic movement with a 42-hour power reserve, unusual for a high-jewelry timepiece. $178,700
