  • Catalogue Essay

    The Hommage Condottieri is certainly one of the most sought after Roger Dubuis timepieces ever made. It enabled the world to witness what his own creations would look like after 20 years at Patek Philippe in the complications department. Utterly beautiful through its classic design and highest quality craftsmanship, the Hommage Condottieri is encased in a round, three-piece case with a monogrammed exhibition caseback. On view is the exquisitely hand-finished cal. RD27 made to observatory standards, underneath the snow white enamel dial with painted black Roman numerals. Regarded as a grail watch by the firm, the original base movement derives from a 1940s Tavannes cal. 507 finessed with Dubuis’ sophisticated modifications including a swan neck regulator, Breguet hairspring, stunning hand-polished anglage on all bridges, as well as hand-polished and chamfered screws. Precision built to Poinçon de Genève and Observatoire National de Besançon standards, it is a superb masterpiece hand-regulated by Roger Dubuis himself.

    The present watch is fresh-to-the-market, very well preserved, and a wonderful representation of Dubuis’s craftsmanship and attention to detail. The watch is accompanied by its suite of accessories including its additional solid case back.
