  • Catalogue Essay

    Since 1995, the reputed watchmaker Roger Dubuis has created some of the most attractive chronographs in the world of watches, one of such is the Hommage series produced till 2003. Taking muse and heavy inspiration from the Patek Philippe ref. 130 and ref. 1463 as the name implies, the Hommage was available in three case size: the H34, H37 and H40, each gave hints of their diameters and was made limited to 28 pieces each.

    The present H37 Bi-Retrograde Perpetual Calendar chronograph encased in 18K white gold fitted with a white lacquer dial provides a wealth of information. Featuring the symmetric stylistic indication of the date and day of the week, the wearer can simultaneously locate the information under a pair of skeletonized hands finished in attractive blued steel. A subtle tribute can be spotted while the wearer activates the chronograph pushers, reminiscent of the fluted details of the famed pushers of the Patek Philippe ref. 1463 “Tasti Tondi”, the discreet flare adds elegance and delight to this spectacular timepiece. Housed under the ample sapphire caseback display is the manually wounded Cal. RD 5637 taking blue print from the beloved Lemania 2310. Finessed with pride, the movement bears the mark of excellence, the Poinçon de Genève.

    Preserved in an attractive overall condition, the present timepiece numbered 7 of a limited production of 28 pieces indicated on the certificate is accompanied by the original Besançon Observatory certificate, Geneva Seal certificate and it’s presentation box. For collectors looking to track down one of the early Roger Dubuis creation with its original accessories, this is the perfect opportunity.
