Notes

Albert, Gilbert (1930-2019)

Genevan jewellery, born on September 20, 1930. He died on October 1st, 2019.

In 1955, at the age of 24, he began to apply his innovative talents to the design of wristwatch cases for Patek Philippe. Breaking away from traditional shapes, he introduced asymmetrical triangles and rhombic forms inspired by his passion for modern sculpture and works by his favourite’s artists, such as Brancusi and Mondrian. He also introduced textured organic surfaces on the asymmetrical shapes designed for the Patek Philippe “Ricochet" collection. However, many of his more revolutionary designs of that time remained prototypes and were not produced in a series.

In 1962, Gilbert Albert established his own workshop, designing and producing jewellery under his own name. Over the years, he became very successful, both in Geneva and internationally, and receiving numerous awards for his jewellery.
