Recognisable at a glance with its tonneau case and the vertical arrangement of the different functions on the dial, this new interpretation of the Grand Dôme DT chronograph adopts an elegantly vintage design.

Swiss luxury watch brand Dubey & Schaldenbrand presents its new product strategy, along with the market vision of its new owner Jonatan Gil

Dubey & Schaldenbrand, a brand well known for its high-end mechanical watches with high added value, is presenting its new product strategy in 2010, along with the market vision of its new owner Jonatan Gil. While the brand intends to capitalise on its fundamentals and on the factors that have forged its reputation, it also intends to keep firmly in touch with the real and contemporary expectations of the public.

23 year-old Jonatan Gil, owner of Dubey & Schaldenbrand since June 2009, immediately enlisted the support of an efficient team with the aim of presenting an ambitious and attractive marketing strategy in 2010.

The brand renewal naturally involves a new corporate identity with an attractive graphic design, a thoroughly revised product range, a price positioning based on an excellent product/price ratio, as well as a professional international distribution network. It is with genuine pride that Jonatan Gil is introducing in 2010 a brand that has been treated to a complete makeover, while pursuing the task undertaken by its founders in 1946.

That was the year that Messrs George Dubey, professor at the Institute of Technology in La Chaux-de-Fonds and René Schaldenbrand, a man with considerable experience of the watch industry, jointly created Dubey & Schaldenbrand.

These two visionaries soon attracted interest in trade circles and earned recognition for their patented split second chronograph movement, as well as the subsequent invention and development of a number of exclusive and original products. Passionately dedicated to their research and technical developments, Georges Dubey and René Schaldenbrand were not really geared towards international distribution of their products, nor particularly concerned with developing a genuine marketing strategy. In 1995, an encounter with Mrs Cinette Robert was to prove a significant turning point in the brand history.

Fascinated by fine watchmaking, she was immediately enthused by the serious technical and aesthetic approach adopted by these two creators of incomparable timepieces. Won over by this magical world, she found herself in record time the owner of Dubey & Schaldenbrand, and within 15 years was to transform the brand into one of the jewels in the crown of the Swiss watch industry.

People and companies do not always grow by means of exclusively rational and well-reasoned strategies. The finest successes often owe a lot to feelings, to emotions and to common sense. Jonatan Gil is a perfect example of this truth. His fascination for beautiful watches has been nurtured within his family environment, as well as during the eight Basel Fairs he has already attended.

His determination to become a player, and not merely an admirer, in this world with its apparently boundless facets seemed to him a logical next step and a natural objective. A year of working alongside Cinette Robert was enough for Jonatan Gil to measure the real potential of the brand, to immerse himself in it, to establish a clear-cut vision of its future development, and finally to buy up the company in order to ensure its continuity.

Driven by a contagious enthusiasm and a strong will to succeed, the team now in place has already taken great strides towards the future. It is in complete respect for the Swiss watchmaking art that Dubey & Schaldenbrand continues the development of its own specific techniques, while maintaining an open-minded approach to new technologies in cases where they contribute to enhancing quality and innovation.

Product Policy

Dubey & Schaldenbrand is focusing its product policy on three fundamental principles:-

  • Creating a powerful identity through a compact and attractive collection.
  • Providing coherent interpretations of a few star lines designed to enjoy a long life-cycle.
  • A constant quest for optimal quality/price ratio.

The brand identity must be developed by concentrating resources and creativity on a few star lines with well thought-out variations. Its multidisciplinary design and development team is dedicated to rigorous research destined to achieve balanced shapes and proportions, as well as uncompromising respect for the highest quality criteria duly honouring Switzerland’s fine watchmaking traditions. Each line is expressed in harmony with the aesthetic codes specific to Dubey & Schaldenbrand. This obsession for aesthetic and technical details makes all the difference between a watch and a great creation.

Dubey & Schaldenbrand SPIRAL VERSO CHEVAL

The SPIRAL signed DUBEY & SCHALDENBRAND has always been a very unusual watch,one of those timeless objects unlike any other that connoisseurs of fine watches can spot at a glance. VERSO refers to the clever mechanism of its two-sided pivoting case.

According to the moment or the mood, it can be worn with the watch side out, or the jewelled side. On one side, it displays the time; then quick as a wink the other side reveals the thousand sparkles of each diamond in the horse (CHEVAL) motif. The extraordinary beauty of this fine work of jewellery is impressive, seductive and invites admiration.

The SPIRAL-VERSO CHEVAL is the star of its range, in a class of its own at the top of the line,a splendid jewel for men to be worn with pride! This magnificent complication chronograph has a crown and pushpieces at 9 o’clock, an hour counter and small seconds hand, a 24-hour hand, a day/month window, a date display and moon phase. It is easily identifiable by the blue “ISOVAL” spring and is impossible not to notice.
The mechanical movement with automatic winding and a chronometer-quality escapement is hand-engraved. Its gold finish is accentuated by a skeletonised rotor and blued steel screws. It boasts 25 jewels, an incabloc anti-shock system, 28’800 oscillations with a 48-hour power reserve, 100% Swiss-made parts, and a 316L surgical steel case. A sapphire crystal covers a finely brushed dial on which four counters and six blue spherical applied chapters punctuate the ballet of the Super Luminova “diamond lozenge” hands.

Spiral-Verso “Jewels by Request”: On the jewelled side, the horse (CHEVAL) can be replaced by another motif if the customer so desires. This fine jewellery work requires many steps to complete, beginning with a study and design and finally becoming reality through mitraillage, meaning preparation for setting, and the placement of the diamonds or other precious stones. While there is no charge for a brief oral estimate with no strings attached, a more specific price can be given upon payment of an advance covering the cost price of the setup work. The same applies for a project with a design, a specific choice of stones, etc. Any special work is usually paid for when the order is placed.

Dubey & Schaldenbrand AEROCHRONO

The Aerochrono marks an important breakthrough in the history of Dubey & Schaldenbrand. It has always been a dream to create a small-size chronograph using the standard tonneau shaped Aerodyn case.

As with all Dubey & Schaldenbrand watches, “AEROCHRONO” uses a self-winding, automatic movement with 3 sub-dials indicators :-

– A 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock.
-A 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock.
-A small second indicator at 9 o’clock.

There is also a date indicator window between 4 and 5 o’clock.
A closer look at the “AEROCHRONO” dial reveals a sensational “Clous de Paris,” guilloche pattern. Add to this the “Stuart” hands and this watch takes on a look which is simply stunning. The beautiful “AEROCHRONO” case is made of 4N 18K Rose Gold, measuring a remarkable 33 x 44 mm with a thickness of 12 mm. It is fitted with a domed sapphire crystal which has an anti-reflective coating on both sides.

“AEROCHRONO” uses a self-winding, automatic chronograph movement with a diameter of 23.3 mm and a thickness of 5.5 mm; 33 rubies; Incabloc; 28,800 oscillations, 37-hour power reserve and a “chronometer”-quality escapement. As a final touch, all bridges are decorated with the famous “Côtes de Genève” pattern that is then rhodium-plated. Thanks to its sapphire-crystal case back, one can admire the beauty, functionality and craftsmanship of the movement.

Dubey & Schaldenbrand GEORGES DUBEY EDITION

This collector’s piece stemming from the native region of Georges Dubey is a particularly eloquent tribute to the brilliant professor of Haute Horlogerie at the Technicum in La Chaux-de-Fonds, a passionate watchmaking inventor with many patents to his name and co-founder of the brand bearing his name. The distinctive radiance that sets its apart conceals an additional source of wonderment: an extremely rare 1950s chronograph movement: Calibre R92.
Entirely clad in an elegantly curved case in 316L polished stainless steel or 18K rose gold, the ultra-rare 17-jewel movement from the R92 collection, complete with incabloc shockabsorbers, may be admired through the glareproofed cambered sapphire crystal caseback. This fascinating calibre equipped with a balance beating at 18,000 vibrations per hour enjoys a 38-hour power reserve.

Viewed from the front, the timepiece glows with an inimitable glistening radiance created by the shine of polished steel or solid gold reflected in the light playing over on the double-pear hands in blued steel and the finely guilloché-worked dial. The latter is particularly sophisticated, featuring two counters and a brand name cartouche highlighted by a central zone adorned with an exquisitely complex asymmetrical guilloché worked Clou de Paris hobnail pattern – all surrounded by distinctive numerals interspersed with a set of four appliques. Limited series of 150 in steel and 50 in 18K rose gold.

Dubey & Schaldenbrand COUPE 06 Automatic Limited Edition

The Coupe 06 epitomizes what Dubey & Schaldenbrand stands for: the finest quality, superb finish, attention to details, rarity and prestige. Its bodywork (case) draws its inspiration from the famous racing cars of the past: even its base sapphire is curvex.

Its finely guilloche dial with 24 zones has silver powder numerals, or gold powder numerals on the 18K model, or multicoloured numerals where each figure is a different color. Each numeral is finished by hand. Its special hands are very easy to read and are reminiscent of a vintage Dubey & Schaldenbrand advertisement “La montre DS marche bien” (The French slogan is a play on words as the word “marche” means both “works” and “walks” – The DS watch works (walks) well.

This watch is fitted with a Dubey & Schaldenbrand self-winding movement with a large date at 12h and small second hand at 6h. It has a chronometer-quality escapement, 42 hour running reserve, stop second and is water-resistant to 30 meters. The two sapphire crystals are curved and anti-reflective on both sides.

Dubey & Schaldenbrand COUPE CITY

The COUPÉ CITY is a magnificent watch with exceptional design that generally adorns the wrist of business people and tireless travellers.

Combining elegance and strength, the unusual column-style arrangement of the hour numerals further accentuates its exceptional image. Its travelling vocation is further accentuated by the large pear-shaped superluminova coated hour and minute hands and its shimmering dial featuring several hollowed subdials. Seen from close up, and nestled in your hands, this stunning model reveals all its secrets: The dual time-zone display and all the functions of its complicated movement, also equipped with a stop seconds system, are adjustable by means of a single crown.

An aesthetically pleasing and logical arrangement allows one to read off the 60 seconds around the rim of the dial, whereas the date is indicated above 6 o’clock.The indispensable 24-hour subdial at 9 o’clock runs in step with the second time zone placed under the 12 o’clock numeral. Together, they facilitate intuitive read-off of the two different times.

The eye-catching play of light is produced by the exquisite sunbrushed guilloché dial motif. This highly distinctive pattern features rays resembling the steps on a fascinating staircase.

A curvaceous case in polished 316L stainless surgical steel or in 18-carat rose gold clothes this elegant beauty and reveals its complicated 23-jewel mechanical self-winding movement bearing the DUBEY & SCHALDENBRAND signature boasting chronometer-worthy accuracy and incabloc shock absorbers. Its balance oscillates at a rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour and provides a comfortable 42-hour power reserve. Special limited edition of 150 in steel and 50 in 18K gold.

This movement is specially modified for Dubey & Schaldenbrand to include a big date indicator window at 12 o’clock (made up of 2 individual disks which allows for easy reading of the date) and, a small second sub-dial at 6 o’clock which gives the watch a certain “retro” look.

Other particulars of the chronometer-quality movement include 26 jewels; Incabloc; Glucydur balance wheel; Nivarox I spiral; a polished-steel anker and anker wheel; rhodium-plated, brass plates which have a pearled or better-said “Côtes de Genève” finish; blued-steel screws.

“AQUADYN” is available in a stainless steel case (which happens to be made of 316 L surgical steel) or in 18K Rose Gold. Its 3 dimensional, beautifully-contoured, tonneau shape measures 38 x 47.5 mm with a thickness of 14.1 mm.

The dial is also contoured at the 4 corners and comes in a selection of 4 enamel-based colors, namely white, blue, black or Bordeaux. Add to this the typical Dubey & Schaldenbrand hands which come together to give this watch a look of complete harmony.

And of course, this watch comes equipped with a tough rubber bracelet with a deployable or folding buckle.

Dubey & Schaldenbrand Spiral Rattrapante (Split-Second “Spiral” Chronograph)

This exclusive timepiece by Dubey &Schaldenbrand is distinguished by its famous blue ISOVAL balance-spring and by it’s extremely high levels of performance.

Introduced in 2005, this exceptional split seconds chronograph pays tribute to the remarkable invention by Georges Dubey, patented in 1946.

Dubey & Schaldenbrand Spiral Rattrapante (Split-Second “Spiral” Chronograph)

The history of the split-second chronograph is very much tied to Dubey & Schaldenbrand. In 1946, the company was founded in order to produce and commercialize the inventions of Georges Dubey”.

Today, the timepieces, chronographs and chronometers of this prestigious brand have found a very respected and envied place throughout the world. Each year, in addition to the remarkable contemporary collections, Dubey & Schaldenbrand introduce one or two very limited series using rare and fascinating vintage movements from the past.

The Inventor of the Split-Second Chronograph

It was more than 150 years after the invention of the spiral by Dutch physicist, geometer and astronomer – Christian Huygens – that the renowned and respected Austrian watchmaker-constructor Josef Winnerl (1799-1886) produced in 1870 the first Split-Second chronograph.

How does a Split-Second Chronograph Work?

The system of a Split-Second chronograph is a very delicate complication which allows the measurement of intermediate time by the temporary blockage of one of the wheels. Given that a “normal” chronograph uses a single second hand for carrying out a timing function, a split-second chronograph has two superimposed hands: one which is the “Split-Second” hand and the other is the regular “chronograph” hand.

When applying pressure to the chrono “pusher”, the timing function is set in motion with both hands running perfectly superimposed. When applying pressure to the split-second “pusher”, the “split-second” hand is blocked and causes it to stop thereby allowing the operator to easily read the indicated intermediate time. Without losing a beat, the regular”chronograph” hand continues to run its course undisturbed.

When applying pressure to the split-second “pusher” once again, the “stopped” split second hand springs to life and rejoins the ”chronograph” hand with both once again running perfectly superimposed as they continue the timing function. This interplay of movement repeats itself as many times as requested by the operator and until pressure is applied to the chronograph “pusher” which stops both hands and thus the timing function. This step allows the operator to read the cumulative time.

1946: Dubey & Schaldenbrand’s Split-Second Chronograph – the “Index-Mobile”

The invention of Georges Dubey was remarkable in that he was able to simplify the technical complexity of the Split-Second chronograph whilst still using the principal of the two superimposed hands. He did this by simply joining the two hands together using a spiral.

This system of the Split-Second chronograph -invented around 1943 … patented in 1946 and made even more precise in 1949 and 1952 – was produced over 50 years. Used initially by Dubey & Schaldenbrand, Edo and Como it was also put to use by other brands e.g. Eberhard and Breitling to name but a few.

Basel 1995: Dubey & Schaldenbrand’s Split-Second Fly-Back Chronograph

In 1995, Cinette Robert, the great-granddaughter of watchmaker Meylan, presided over the destiny of world-renowned Dubey & Schaldenbrand . True to her image as a specialist of the complicated watches of Georges Dubey, the new President of Dubey & Schaldenbrand is fixed on the idea of further reinforcing the association of Dubey & Schaldenbrand with the Split-Second chronograph, this time using a new generation of automatic, self-winding mechanical movements.

The fact that there was no Dubey & Schaldenbrand stand at the Basel Fair certainly did not deter her from fulfilling her ambitions. Without a showcase to display her creations, Cinette Robert sent the prototype of her new Split-Second chronograph to the Basel Fair immediately catching the attention of many watch specialists and enthusiasts.

“Uhren Chronos”, one of Germany’s leading watch magazines, featured the 1995 Basel Fair in their Issue 4 of 1995. The cover titles included Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak Offshore, IWC’s Mark XII, a comparison of alarm watches with Jaeger Lecoultre, etc.

Still on the cover page, the magazine also made reference to Eberhard’s Split-Second Chronograph with the caption: “The Battle for Seconds!” Included inside the magazine was a 10-page direct test comparison between Dubey & Schaldenbrand’s Split Second Fly-Back Chronograph and Eberhard’s Tazio Nuvolari Split-Second Chronograph.

Making its debut under the guidance of its new President / CEO, the brand from Les Ponts-de-Martel placed all its efforts on the movement itself. Basically abandoning the patented complication of Georges Dubey, Cinette Robert presented a traditional complication which was mounted on a Valjoux movement. Worth pointing out is the fact that the movement used by Eberhard was produced using the very same base.

Despite this, Dubey & Schaldenbrand were able to win “The “Battle for Seconds!”. Dubey & Schaldenbrand had yet to develop their very own model with a distinct watch case, dial and hands. As such, their Split-Second Fly- Back Chronograph was awarded 4 stars exactly the same rating as that given to Eberhard’s Tazio Nuvolari Split-Second Chronograph.

Cinette Robert quickly began work on developing her very own collection. And this she did with the success and typical feminine charm of which we have all come to expect and enjoy in Dubey & Schaldenbrand timepieces. Also worth mentioning is that Dubey & Schaldenbrand’s Split-Second Fly-Back Chronograph with its hand-engraved movement retailed for DM 4’950 compared with DM 10’900 for Eberhard’s Tazio Nuvolari.

From the beginning, Cinette Robert has never confused luxury with “glitzy” factories and “glamorous” advertisements which significantly add to the overall retail price of a product. It was her goal and desire to produce timepieces of an exceptional quality at an exceptional price. Timepieces which were destined for the top watch enthusiasts and specialists.

1996: Split-second chronograph Jubilee

1996 was the first full year that Cinette Robert had control of the house of Dubey & Schaldenbrand. It was also the year that the company celebrated its 50th Jubilee anniversary. Without forgetting the many watch collectors and enthusiasts – of which she was most certainly one – Cinette Robert rummaged through her stock of original watch movements and components and produced a limited series of 150 pieces of the now-famous “Index-Mobile” Jubilee.

For this, she used a Landeron movement which was more or less the same age as the company. Simply re-casing, engraving and regulating the original Landeron movement was too easy and would have certainly been an underestimation of the talent of Cinette Robert. With much difficulty, she succeeded in modifying the base movement to include a very useful date, day and month indicator –functions which were very much in demand at that time.

These functions were regulated not by the regular correction “pushers”, but by a very clever correction mechanism controlled by the rotating bezel itself. Enhancing the celebration, Mr. Georges Dubey – 85 years of age – visited Dubey & Schaldenbrand’s stand at the 1997 Basel Fair.

2005: Honoring the traditional Split-Second Chronograph – with the renowned “Spiral” model

Dubey & Schaldenbrand’s Split-Second “Spiral” Chronograph is distinguished by its’ famous ISOVAL blue spiral, a delightful feature which certainly gives this timepiece its’ distinct look.

Revolutionary in 1946, it continues to simulate and honor the amazing invention of Georges Dubey, the invention which led to the establishment of the company itself. Without doubt, this particular model is an important corner stone representing the overall image and tradition of the Dubey & Schaldenbrand brand. The actual 1946 Index-Mobile movement was replaced by a modified movement using the Valjoux movement as its’ base – a movement which was first tested in 1995.

This prestigious timepiece with its’ unique style incorporates the full “savoir-faire” and expertise of the brand. Every detail of the engraved movement; of the case; of the dial; of the hands; of the bracelet as well as all the fine finishing work, received the greatest of care.
