Gran'Chrono Astro Watch from Dubey and Schaldenbrand

Dec 04, 2009
What sets this spectacular Gran'Chrono Astro watch apart from its famous predecessor, the Gran'Chrono model, is a triple date function of indicating day of the week, day of the month and month, as well as the moon phase function.

All these innovative complications are incorporated into the same, curved tonneau-shaped case, rendered in 4N (18K) pink gold. It is paved with 432 TW/VS diamonds, which total weight constitutes 8.92 carats.

This alluring model from Dubey & Schaldenbrand is armed with anti-reflective sapphire crystals both on the dial side and the case-back.

The case is fitted with push-pieces, which were intentionally created to enhance the aesthetic appeal of the watch and ensure ultimate comfort. Manufacturing the final prototype of the cases double curvature required over 90 operations and 16 months of painstaking effort.

The Gran'Chrono Astro watch case embraces a breathtaking dial, embellished with a black guilloche pattern. The dial reveals the day and month exhibition window, located at 12 oclock. The moon phase aperture is placed at 6 oclock. The dial also exposes a 12-hour counter, nestled at 6 oclock and 30-minute counter at 12 oclock.

Animating the functions of hours, minutes, day, date, months, moon phase and chronograph is an automatic calibre, entirely executed by the Dubey & Schaldenbrand brand.

Featuring hand-decorated gold finishing, the movement incorporates a chronometer-quality escapement, a skeletonized rotor, as well as a stop seconds system to provide absolutely accurate time-setting.

The Dubey & Schaldenbrand Gran'Chrono Astro watch is accompanied by a Louisiana alligator leather strap.
