Jun 21th Sep Rolex Submariner Sea Shepherd Challenge custom watch

Swiss high-end watch modification brand Artisans de Geneve has handled countless cool modification watches, including Daytona, which was modified for Colombian former F1 Formula One driver Juan Pablo Montoya in 2018, and "The Pearl" which made Patek Philippe Ref. 5711 a new face earlier this year. "Plans are all good examples. The latest "Sea Shepherd Challenge" project is a big change for the Rolex Submariner of Paul Watson, founder of the Sea Shepherd Conservation.


Paul Watson has been concerned about the conservation of the ocean for more than half a century, and he is still working hard today. Now, this marine environmental protection fighter is looking for Artisans de Geneve, hoping that they will transform their beloved Rolex Submariner ref. 116610. Because Paul Watson has been in the ocean for many years, he is accompanied by the endless ocean, the starry sky, and the moon in the silence and darkness. These elements inspired Artisans de Geneve and became the main axis of this modified watch. The watchmaker specially created a unique moon phase module for this Submariner. The moon phase plate is made of Grand Feu enamel, and the texture of the silver moon is carved by hand.


Of course, the built-in movement is still the 3135 self-winding movement, and the plate, bridge, barrel, and some gears of the movement are designed to be hollow. In addition, it looks like red gears commonly known as red meat and conspicuous gold. The gears can be clearly seen. The automatic plate is replaced with 18K white gold and decorated with aventurine, and the rest of the watch parts have been chamfered and polished, allowing the wearer to appreciate the 3135 movements on the back of the watch and feel it at the same time To the excellent texture exuded by the details of the movement. It's a pity that you can't see the moon phase module on the other side of the movement on the back of the watch, so you can only enjoy the official pictures.


The moon phase is clearly displayed on the dial, and the gear that drives the moon phase disc is actually the date wheel, which will push back one step after 12:00 midnight. The dial and the unidirectional rotating diving bezel are decorated with aventurine, as if you are in the ocean at night, looking up at the endless starry sky, and you can see the bright moon from time to time. The case is made of brushed stainless steel, and the surface is frosted to create a unique layer.


This Rolex Submariner ref. 116610's part of the material color scheme, movement structure, and moon phase function are different from those seen by ordinary watch fans, showing the extraordinary modification skills of Artisans de Geneve. I believe that this type of modification style will only increase in the future, and there should be a chance to see customized water ghosts with different complex functions!
