Hommage Chronograph | H37 565 | rose 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 white enamel dial. The face is painted with brown roman numerals , which match the rose gold case elegantly, and add a nice contrast against the steel blue chronograph hand. The other hands are rose gold, with the hour and minute hands taking the form of feuilles shape.
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 (as the watch is also accompanied by the Geneva Certificate of Origin). 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 alligator strap and rose-gold, original deployant. It has the original box, instruction book, 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.
