A goldsmith’s crown

The crown of an Apose is like a jewel worn by the watch. Classically located at “3 o’clock”, it is technically the only external component directly related to the movement, the heart of the watch. It is the terminal part of the shaft of the winding and time-setting mechanism and thus the decisive link between the external and internal components of a watch.
Visually, it is linked to the case and this specific position aroused the requirement of the Apose brand, which wanted to make it once again an object of elegance and differentiation.

The signature Apose monogram

The crown of Apose watches includes 120 notches on its toothing, which is not common. This choice allows an extreme thinness of the crown that connoisseurs appreciate. The successive operations for its production have the delicacy of goldsmith’s work:
After turning the raw shape, the 120 teeth are carved into the metal using a tool specially designed for Apose.
The crown of Apose watches also bears the fine Apose monogram which has the particularity of being read “from above and from below”. Its engraving is done by laser. The bottom of the engraving is polished by bead blasting to amplify the depth.

A workshop dedicated to fine watchmaking

To create this piece, which is both functional and aesthetic, the Apose brand called on the most prestigious French manufacturer: Cheval Frères, located in École-Valentin, north of Besançon.
Founded in 1848, Cheval Frères designs and manufactures watch crowns and pushers. Its international reputation in the high-end watchmaking world is second to none.
The company has been able to adapt to the most modern technologies by developing extreme expertise in precision bar turning, galvanic treatment, electrolytic polishing, chemical etching and laser marking.
