oday located near Lake Como, La Vallée, a 3-generation Italian family business, was originally founded as a clock-repair workshop in Venice in the 1930s by Antonio Quintavalle.
The atelier bases its work on three guiding principles: exquisite Italian craftsmanship, fine and innovative horology and an unprecedented level of personalisation.
“Attimo” in Italian means “a short and specific moment in time”. The Attimo Golf timepiece is a timepiece that makes the golfer relive the emotion felt in that specific “attimo” in which he struck the winning shot.
The shape of Attimo is inspired by a trophy: in the upper part, it presents a golfer in the act of hitting the ball, while in the lower part, the innovative timepiece mechanism moves the golf ball every hour by simulating the player’s shot, while simultaneously rotating the hour ring.
When the golf ball reaches the sixtieth minute, approaching the golfer’s driver, the mechanism activates and plays and in an instant the golf ball leaves the golfer’s driver. When it reaches the hole, the timepiece mechanism rotates the ring of numbers showing the next hour.
- At the stroke of every hour, Attimo Golf re-proposes the emotion of the winning shot struck by its owner, “the attimo" (moment). A total of 715 components, all individually hand finished. Weight: 13.5 kg. Height 545 mm.
An extra-limited edition, produced in just 50 individually numbered units, Attimo Golf is made of gold, silver, diamonds, blown crystal and stainless steel. Like all La Vallée timepieces, it offers the possibility of unprecedented personalisation.
The entire upper scene hand made in gold, silver and diamonds can be shaped in the image and likeness of the future owner: from the shape of the body to the features of the face, from the irons to the details of the golf bag, down to every smallest detail of the clothing and shoes.
The truest meaning of craftsmanship!
