The timepiece manufacture Dubey & Schaldenbrand has joined the stream of limited edition watches by launching its Superbia NV model.
The charming horological creation boggles the public’s imagination with its pure lines, which lend it extreme visual grace. The new Dubey & Schaldenbrand watch is featured in two case versions: high-grade 316L steel and 18K 5N gold.
The high-grade 316L steel interpretation comes in a limited series of 150 units, while that, rendered in 18K 5N gold is offered in a limited edition of just 50 pieces.
The case of the model is equipped with a graceful time-setting crown, sculptured in high-grade 316L steel or 18K 5N gold. Both versions are embossed with a DS engraving.
The measurements of the case are 50.5 mm x 35 mm. Its height, meanwhile, constitutes 10 mm. The water-resistance of the timepiece is assured down to 30 meters.
The case is assembled with a convex spherical upper sapphire crystal, with internal anti-reflective treatment. The sapphire crystal is also used for the back side of the timepiece described.
Beneath the high quality top glass there is a sun-brushed dial. It features a painted minute track and 4 applied stick-shaped hour-markers, presented at 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock. At 6 and 12 o’clock the appliques are doubled. The centralized Dauphines hands serve to display hours and minutes. The hands are 18K 5N gold-plated or rendered in high-grade 316L steel. The dial is gently hugged by a bezel, adorned with scintillating jewels.
The functions, provided by the new Superbia NV watch, are driven by a historical ultra-thin self-winding movement - Lemania 8810. The 2.95 mm thick movement incorporates a double barrel and a rotor, marked with DS engraving.
Embellished and assembled in the manufacture’s workshops, the mechanism exposes 25 jewels and a rhodium-treated "Cotes de Geneve" finish. It oscillates at the rate of 28, 800 vibrations per hour and provides a 48-hour power reserve.
Completing the consummate appearance of the new Dubey & Schaldenbrand watch is a folded-edge dark chestnut brown alligator leather strap. It reveals large square scales and tone on tone stitching. The steel version is fitted with a high-grade 316L steel tang, while that crafted from gold boasts an 18K 5N gold tang.
