Hommage Chronograph | H37 560 | grey gold
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 Hommage Chronograph watch, inspired by classics such as the Patek Philippe's Ref. 130. It is also similar to the Ref. 5070, albeit in a more elegant, smaller size. The design is that of a two-register chronograph, with a silver dial. The face is painted with blue graduations, a pulsometer scale, matching the steel blue chronograph hands perfectly. The other hands are silver, with the hour and minute hands taking the form of rather unusual skeletonised feuilles shape.
The watch is a limited edition of 28 pieces and was delivered at the end of 1998. Its design is classic to early Roger Dubuis and the watch was regulated by the watchmaker himself. The case is very distinct with its polished, stepped concave bezel and brushed concave lugs. The three-body structure gives the watch a larger presence on the wrist than the mid-size 37 mm case would normally suggest.
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.
The watch comes on a brown strap and grey-gold tang buckle. It has the original box, papers, an extra grey-gold case back, as well as the certificate of authenticity, Genevan Certificate of Origin and the Besançon timekeeping certificate.
Viewings can be arranged in Central London by appointment.
