  • Catalogue Essay

    Based on the Lemania 2310, the present Roger Dubuis chronograph H34.56.6 is an early example made before the brand's sale to Richemont. First and foremost a watchmaker, Roger Dubuis had tirelessly worked for brands such as Patek Philippe and Longines, before setting up his own workshop. It was in 1995 that Dubuis created his own brand, teaming up with Carlos Dias.

    Originally made in a series of 28 examples, the H34 is a sight to behold and displays incredible details that would impress even the most fastidious watch purist. Firstly, the movement is based upon the Lemania 2310 ébauche - just like the famed Patek Philippe reference 5070. The movement proudly displays the Geneva seal - an exceptional feat for a small, at the time independent watchmaker. On top of that, it was certified by the Besançon Observatory. Finally, the dial itself is beautiful. Displaying contrasting finishes and luminous Arabic numerals, the effect is visually stunning.

    The present example H34.56.6 features an attractive and unique two tone dial with a cream hue contrasted by a silvered outer track. Numbered 1 of 1, as engraved on its additional caseback, the present timepiece is a piece unique example of the coveted reference. Offered in excellent overall condition and complete with its full set of accessories, this is one not to miss out for lovers and collectors of fine chronograph wristwatches.
