Some watch designs from past years are still, even today, genuine eye-catchers. It is therefore no wonder that vintage watches are very popular with numerous watch aficionados.
For the occasion of our 230 year anniversary, every month this year we will auction off a beautiful DuBois et fils vintage watch on our website. The highest proceed amount out of these 12 watches will entirely go into the company’s own social aid project DBF Social at the end of 2015.
The auction series will start with the watch model Aérienne N°2 with pocket watch movement. The silver dial of this timepiece impresses with its different finely chased and colour-coded zones. The classic indexes and Arabic numerals below 12 o'clock were individually appliqued by hand. With the large date and the small seconds counter at 6 o'clock, the Aérienne N°2 discreetly reminds us of the successful watch models of the current DBF001 and DBF003 collection.
