La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
Dubey & Schaldenbrand celebrate the tradition of watchmaking with their new high-performance Grand Shar DBT Tourbillon model that beats at 21,600 vibrations per hour. This tourbillon movement is housed in an exclusive lightweight case formed from titanium grade five and treated by a patented oxidation process that increases the hardness of the material and its mechanical resistance.
The unique color of the titanium case is due to in-house electro-plasma treatment. This technique is used only in the most innovative of environments, such as the aerospace and medical industries. This process has been improved and optimized for the high quality standards of Dubey & Schaldenbrand, and encompassed into a timepiece with a tourbillon for the first time. The tourbillon’s convex spherical inside and outside upper sapphire crystal, anti-reflective on both sides with a sapphire case-back, subtly contrasts its luxurious black alligator strap.
