[Press Release] For the first time in the Pilo & Co Genève range, there’s a very much on-trend, sporty model. Within its automatic heart beats a rare old movement; while atop its screw-down crown sit two capital letters, steeped in meaning.
The Corleone, the first of three collections that will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Pilo & Co Genève watchmaking brand in 2011, has symbolic appeal. Symbolic of a youth that has grown in awareness, assertion and self-confidence.
The bold square face, with its alert, masculine gaze, despite the overwhelming presence on the wrist and a tendency towards classicism, proudly sports a broad bevel.
A promising playground for the fertile imagination of the gem-setter, who, on special request, will delight in filling it with a myriad hand-picked jewels.
The very epitome of Swiss made perfection, the Corleone thus strengthens the DNA behind Pilo & Co. It encases an old ETA 2846 movement obtained from a limited edition of 500 movements crafted well before the brand’s creation and now fully revitalised. A metaphor for survival, a nod to a promise-filled future. On the back of the case, a square aperture reveals an oscillating weight adorned with subtle customisations.
