    Custom Pieces by Lange/FP Journe/Patek

    Hey guys! Recently sold a company and we're looking to get something cool for our team that helped do it. Any idea if Lange & Sohne, FP Journe or Patek will allow customization and if so, how far will they go?

    Probably just looking to have the back engraved, add a line of text on the dial face, and swap some colors.

    Congrats on the sale! Sounds like it was successful ;) I don't think I've seen any dials with custom text from Journe, but no harm in asking. You can reach his brother Laurent if you call or stop by the LA Boutique.

    Thank you! I'm just grateful my business partners are WIS too. :D

    Rolex will, and does often. A little tame by your request I imagine.

    JLC will as well.

    Something more unique, RGM (also in baked enamel) and Ochs & Junior will.

    I think I have seen custom Jaquet Droz, but it is harder to tell with them, lol

    You could get in touch with Vacheron... they advertise bespoke watches through their Cabinotiers service : https://www.vacheron-constantin.com/...binotiers.html

    I've seen custon watches from Patek as well... you probably need to call and figure out how to talk to the right person.

    Vacheron Constantin definitely will do this. They have "Les Cabinotiers" (https://www.vacheron-constantin.com/...notiers.html): "The creation of made-to-order timepieces is a vocation actively pursued by Vacheron Constantin. Crafted by the nimble fingers of master watchmakers and experienced artisans, these unique models consistently push the boundaries of excellence." They recently released a prototype titanium Overseas Dual-Time (https://forums.watchuseek.com/f381/v...e-4980715.html) with a cool rotor. Perhaps a unique rotor design in an otherwise stock VC would be really cool, and perhaps not too crazy expensive. No idea what your budget is (or what these cost), but VC is certainly in the same conversation as ALS, PP, etc.

    Do you have any examples from Rolex? Often? Have not seen any except the Dominos etc but those were then and probly not available for order of just couple of pieces.

    FPJ will do custom dials when you've reached about 200k in watches, however, all must be approved by Mr. Journe himself. He famously refused a grand sonnerie custom dial that he didn't think was appropriate, turning away a big sale. It makes sense, though, because he is protecting his brand and also his creation.
