DuBois et fils kicked off movement sales for the first time with 330 Adolf Schild 1960s AS-1895 caliber tokenized movements. The popularity of these historical movements is ongoing among watch enthusiasts and continue to be valued today for their proven reliability, durability and functionality. The AS-1895 movements sold out in only four days and now tick in the DBF007 Diver watch collection.
DuBois et fils assigns a virtual token to each individual movement. Concretely, you buy a watch movement and receive a token that serves as proof of ownership. This means that you always know exactly which movement belongs to you. The watch work remains in the possession of DuBois et fils. We overhaul the movement and take care of proper storage and maintenance.
At a later point in time you assign a number to the token and can decide in which watch you would like your movement to be installed. A limited, high-quality watch is created from your movement.
We document the process from creation to the end result and map it on a blockchain. The movement and token will experience a guaranteed added value in this process.
By tokenizing historical watch movements, we are redefining the creation of your watch. Be there when we — together with you — make history.
A. Schild S.A. manufactured the "AS-1895" movement in the late 1950s and early 1960s. It’s an extraordinary historical automatic movement. His company, A. Schild S.A., produced a substantial number of mechanical movements for many well-known watch brands. That production was one of the largest in movement manufacturing in Switzerland at the beginning of the last century.
When the movement was created, people worked a lot more with their hands. Despite such manual labor activities there was a demand for wristwatches; especially fine movements. The robustness, the long service intervals and the accuracy of the caliber AS-1895 met those needs. It is those same qualities that also correspond to the zeitgeist of the 21st century.

Schild S.A. were especially valued for their proven reliability.
