Lenny Kravits has teamed up with independent watchmakers Les Artisans de Genève to introduce the limited edition LK 01 watch. Combining modernism with reliability, while preserving the features of classic watches, the LK 01 model is based on the Rolex 116523 reference, which has been modified by hand in Les Artisans de Genève's workshops in Switzerland.
The case has been treated in black DLC, while the bezel has been replaced by a handmade golden bakelite one. The dial, also modified by hand, shows gold markings and timers as well as the famous red Daytona marking which has been preserved.
Additionally, the bracelet has been replaced by a handmade Barenia veal leather strap. Furthermore, the movement is wholly treated in black and holds a 22-carat gold rotor which can be glimpsed through the transparent 100m water-proof back.
With the desire to blend watchmaking and musical arts, the team has also turned the case that the watch comes in into a unique piece: the watch sits in a registered Travel With Sound leather case reminiscent of a roadie trunk and is equipped with a Bluetooth JBL speaker.
Limited to 55 pieces worldwide, the LK 01 Rolex is available now through LAG for approximately $41,855 USD.
