Official description

In the 1980s, as Svend Andersen achieved growing renown as a leading independent watchmaker, Japan’s discerning collectors and connoisseurs were quick to recognise the skill, artistry and inventiveness of his work. A close relationship was formed between ANDERSEN Genève  and the watch community in Japan, a country where craftsmanship, detail and beauty carry such value, and where traditional watchmaking skills are held in such high regard. Engine turning techniques (guilloché), mirror polishing, champfering hand engraving can only be achieved with the best craftsmen in their respective fields.

Many important ANDERSEN Genève  timepieces have since been made for Japanese collectors. These include several stunning unique pieces with perpetual calendars or minute repeater, and the famous “Voyage” world-timer, a 50-piece limited edition made in 2005 in collaboration with Mr Yoshi Isogai of the celebrated retailer Shellman. Few are ever resold.

Mr. Isogai was the owner of Boutique “Shellman” in Ginza. He introduced and distributed independent watchmakers like Philippe Dufour, Svend Andersen, Beat Haldimann just to name the one’s belonging to AHCI (Académie des Créateurs Indépendants). Thanks to his passion for details and watchmaking, some of the most beautiful ANDERSEN Genève timepieces are on the wrists of collectors in Japan.

In 2023, ANDERSEN Genève  has once more created a 50-piece limited edition designed to delight its Japanese clientele. The Jumping Hours – Rising Sun Edition was launched on June 13 in Tokyo at the Swiss ambassador’s residence, to an audience of many of the country’s most esteemed watch collectors and aficionados.
