In 2015, DuBois et fils is celebrating its 230th anniversary of and celebrates this historically significant moment with the launch of a very limited anniversary collection, the DBF004 ‘montre anniversaire 230 ans’.
Elaborately crafted with attention to detail, the puristic designed anniversary model has the potential to become a limited edition classic for aficionados of authentic watches.
With its round, multi-piece case (44 mm) made from high-quality stainless steel 316L, the bridge on the side and the notched bezel, the DBF004 ‘montre anniversaire 230 ans’ clearly bears the signature design and personal touch of DuBois et fils. The sense for form and aesthetics, beauty and quality is also reflected in the dial which has been reduced to the essential.
The purist maintained design of the blue high-gloss painted dial – two hands, a small seconds counter and elegant, hand-appliqued indices – punctuates the harmonious appearance of the DBF004. The Swiss hand-wound movement RECORD 662 from the 1960s can be seen through the double sided anti-reflective coated sapphire glass base.
A hand-crafted, brown strap made of the finest calf leather rounds off the timeless beauty of the timepiece’s outer appearance.
The anniversary collection is available in three different dial versions (blue, anthracite and ivory) and in line with the house’s long tradition is limited to 99 editions per version.
The DBF004 models with the according personal Limited Edition number are now available in the DuBois et fils Online Shop and can be ordered at selected retailers. The sales price is 6,950 Swiss francs.
