Sympathie Chronograph | S34 56 0 | White Gold
This early, white-gold, Roger Dubuis Sympathie Chronograph watch is a limited edition of 28. It is one of the earlier pieces created by the legendary watchmaker, after establishing his own brand in 1995. It has an off-white, gloss dial and the movement was regulated by Roger Dubuis himself. It is also chronometer-graded, with a certificate from the Besançon Observatory. The watch comes as a full-set, with original box, papers and solid 18k white-gold case back.
Roger Dubuis' career started in a typical watchmaker's fashion - learning his craft at big Manufacture, like Patek Philippe. These formative years are clearly reflected in the style of this Sympathie Chronograph watch, produced alongside the Hommage Series. Inspired by time-honoured pieces (such as Patek Philippe's Ref. 130), the Sympathie offers a different take to this classical styling, with a distinctive angular case and elongated lugs.
The design is that of a two-register chronograph, with a gloss-dial and applied Breguet numerals. The polished surfaces and black-printed detailing contrast well against the off-white dial, visible through the anti-reflective sapphire glass. The feuilles hands are white-gold, with two matching blued hands for the chronograph and 30-minute register. The 35mm square case features an array of polished and brushed surfaces, with a stepped-bezel, elongated, polished lugs and over-sized screw attachments.
The watch is powered by the Cal. RD 56 (based on the Lemania 2310), bearing the Seal of Geneva. The complexity of the movement is revealed through a sapphire case-back, featuring a 21 jewel, straight-line lever escapement, a monometallic balance adjusted to 5 positions, a self-compensating Breguet spring and swan-neck micrometer regulator.
Viewings can be arranged in Central London by appointment.
