  • Catalogue Essay

    The Sympathie model was released as one of the first models launched by Roger Dubuis after establishing his own brand in 1995 alongside the Hommage model. Early Roger Dubuis timepieces are rare and highly sought after in the market today as each model and variant were only produced with 28 examples. The Sympathie model pushes the boundaries with a unique angular square case design with elongated lugs, illustrating an unmistakable silhouette for the model.

    The present example Roger Dubuis Symphathie Bi-retrograde perpetual chronograph from circa 2001 in 18K white belongs to an early example of the model. Boasting an attractive symmetrical two register design, the white fan shaped typograph adds a touch of personality and nice contrast against the glossy black lacquer dial.

    Early Roger Dubuis timepieces are chronometer certified to Bulletin D’ Observatoire standards and further stamped by the excellence of the Geneva seal. Offered with its original certificate and accessories, this present example is certainly a rare sight to come across.
