STORY OF A REBIRTH

THE DNA OF A LEGEND
Nearly two years of R&D have gone into creating watches that allow you to own a fragment of an iconic automobile. Each new timepiece allows us to further explore the limitless possibilities offered by the close link between mechanical watchmaking and automotive engineering, whether in terms of the technology it incorporates or its design.
WHERE IT ALL STARTED
The story of Atelier Jalaper began in 2019 with the watches from the DB5 collection. Our watch inspired from the Aston Martin is a tribute to the legendary British sports car, featuring a dial taken from the bonnet of an Aston Martin DB5. This first timepiece showcased the brand's vision and encapsulated the elegance and performance of an iconic car, weaving a seamless narrative between automotive heritage and the art of watchmaking. Choose between the iconic Silver Birch colour of the DB5, which the case of the AJ001-S watches refers to, and the black PVD finish of the AJ001-B watches.

THEY TALK ABOUT US
Our valiant 25 and 27 year old compatriots had the crazy idea of buying an Aston Martin DB5 hood (James Bond's), and cutting it up to make the dial of their watch."GQ magazinesur Atelier Jalaper

THE AJ-P400 WATCH
Our new Lamborghini-inspired watch reflects the bold styling of the Miura, with its revolutionary curves and flamboyant Bertone bodywork. It took two years of R&D to design this men's watch with its Swiss calibre and manual winding that will make you feel the mechanics at your fingertips. Available in a limited edition of 400, each model in our Miura collection reinvents one of the most emblematic colours of the Italian beauty, and is equipped with a hand-wound movement. Each AJ-P400 is meticulously assembled in Switzerland by our watchmakers in our workshops in La Chaux-de-Fonds.
The clean, striking contours of the satin-brushed steel case are a tribute to the elegant lines of this historic Italian automobile. The elliptical design of the bezel encircling the black dial, more than a unique visual ornament, takes up the outline of the spectacular eyelashes added by designer Marcello Gandini to the Miura's circular headlights to give the very first supercar an even more distinctive look. The dial's patinated surface and black colouring reflect the unique history of the piece of aluminum from which it is made, taken from a 1969 Miura P400 S ravaged by fire. The design of the hour-markers and numerals refers to the armada of counters on the Miura's dashboard, and the power reserve at six o'clock echoes the codes of the Lamborghini petrol gauge: winding your hand-wound watch is like refueling your car to get it started.
Through the transparent back of the watch case, slightly smoked to recall the car's unintentional fire, appreciate the complexity and finishing of the Swiss movement and its components at work, similar to the mechanisms that power the car's V12. The watch's black leather strap echoes the car's iconic '60s pudgy upholstery.
Whether you're a car enthusiast or a watch lover, explore our collections of men's watches with dials crafted from authentic classic car parts. Each model is a perfect fusion of advanced technology, watchmaking precision and automotive design.
All our watches are available as limited editions, a constraint inherent in the raw materials we use and an echo of the exclusivity of the iconic automobiles we celebrate.
