SWISS MADE


WhEN a drEam bECOmEs rEaLITy

Where does our passion for quality mechanical and automatic Swiss watches come from ? Thanks to

our father, who is also involved in this field of work, we had been literally at home in the world of watchmaking

since our earliest childhood and had long harboured the wish to secure the future of the glorious

watchmaker’s achievements with a big family tradition.

In 2009 the opportunity arose for my brother Alexandre and myself to take over the brand for which I was

already working and whose singularity and outstanding quality I championed wholeheartedly.

Dubey & Schaldenbrand has been part of the world of luxury watches since 1946 and today can be

found at leading jewellers around the world in almost 40 countries. The modern design of the collection

combines know-how and watchmaker’s tradition, offering values which I personally do not want to

miss when it comes to timekeeping. I am thinking above all of the absolutely sublime hand-engraved

movements.

The perfect quality of the workmanship and 65 years of watch-making proficiency are a guarantee that

your Dubey & Schaldenbrand is an exceptional watch. Dubey & Schaldenbrand dresses your wrist with

a chapter from Swiss watch-making history, honoured with the seal of quality « Swiss Made » – an added

value that is dear to my heart.

The circle has been used to better record the passing of time since ancient times. Babylonians also used

a circle to measure time : they divided up a circle into 360 degrees, split into six segments of 60 degrees

each. The name of the timewheel, Shar, stood for the universe or cosmos.
