The Spiral model from Dubey & Schaldenbrand is another brand icon that deserved the full attention of a team of enthusiastic designers. A new aesthetic approach, governed by a concern for the smallest details, has given rise to a new brand leader, the Grand Shar model. The rounded lines of the Pilot and its successor the Spiral have inspired the designers of this attractive modern piece.

The gadroons at 6 and 12 o’clock lend a definite touch of class that makes a perfect match for the technical nature of its case.
