French watch workshop Skeleton Concept and designer Kevin Novitch have transformed a Rolex Daytona for French Montana.

The $65,000 USD ‘French Montano Concept’ started life as a Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 116520 before the movement was skeletonized, sandblasted and black-coated, revealed through a sapphire crystal dial.

The green and red color palette reflects Montana’s Moroccan roots and its flag, with a personalized and translucent green sapphire bezel, a first for Skeleton Concept that took the atelier five months to achieve. The chronograph’s 12-hour sub dial features Arabic language numerals in a further nod to the diamond-selling artist’s origins.

Two versions of the ‘French Montana Concept’ are available through Skeleton Concept; one in original Oystersteel with an anthracite PVD treatment and a satin-brushed bracelet with polished sides, the second uses a fabricated carbon case and a nylon strap.

“This intricate timepiece created with my cultural roots in mind by Skeleton Concept is all about originality, precision, and quality,” says French Montana. “Bringing the French Montana Concept to life with visionary Kevin Novitch has been both inspiring and rewarding, especially to now have a timepiece that symbolizes my country.”

The ‘French Montana Concept’ is available to order from Skeleton Concept now, priced €65,000 EURO (approximately $65,000 USD).
