  • Catalogue Essay

    Regarded as one of the modern greats of traditional Swiss watchmaking, Roger Dubuis created his own brand in 1995 after an illustrious career at some of the most prestigious manufacturers. Early examples of Roger Dubuis timepieces have recently witnessed a spike in demand by dedicated collectors. One of his earliest creations, when Mr. Dubuis established his own brand, was the Hommage Condottieri.

    The present lot Hommage Condottieri is one of Roger Dubuis early timepieces created, it enabled the world to witness what his own creations would look like after 20 years at Patek Philippe in the complications department. Extremely sleek through its design and craftsmanship, the Hommage Condottieri encased in a 3-piece round-shaped case features the cal. RD27 up to observatory standards underneath the snow white enamel dial with painted black Roman numerals.

    Regarded as one of the grail movements by the firm, the original base of the movement derives from a 1940s Tavannes cal. 507 finessed with Dubuis’ touch of modifications, including a swan neck regulator, Breguet spiral as well as polished and chamfered screws, only to mention some. Built up to Poinçon de Genève and Observatoire National de Besançon standards, all early Roger Dubuis pieces bear an observatory movement. The present timepiece comes with an impressive set of accessories, including the Besançon Observatory trial documentation. It is a wonderful opportunity for collectors to acquire one of the early pieces from the manufacturer.
