Contemporary witness to a new chapter 

This high-quality chronograph was first presented in 2013. As part of a large-scale crowd investment, interested parties were given the opportunity to buy shares and become part of the oldest watch factory in Switzerland. On the one hand, the DBF001 stands for tradition and innovation, on the other, a highly limited watch collection. There are no more than 99 pieces of each edition of DuBois et fils watches.

Big Date Chronograph with special attention to detail

The DBF001 dial is elaborately designed and features three different levels. Each individual number is hand-placed on the dial. The big date is comprised of two date discs.

The housing is made of five individual parts, all of which are screwed together. This complex production makes it possible to achieve superior quality in alternating polished and satin-finished surfaces.

A special feature of the DuBois et fils watches are the screws on the back which display the shape of the logo, the fir tree.

Small Manufacture with a Big Impact

The DBF 001 impresses with its complex case, an elaborate dial and the Dubois-Dépraz Big Date. This small manufacturer was founded in Le Lieu in the Vallée de Joux in 1902 and specializes in complications for existing movements. In 1975 Dubois-Dépraz developed a wristwatch movement with a 5-minute repeater. For many years the company supplied brands such as Patek-Philippe, Eberhard, Heuer, Breitling, and Valjoux among others.
