Keeping Time:
Dubey & Schaldenbrand’s
Dôme GMT in Blue and Red

Katy Donoghue

10 January 2013

Today we start a new series, “Keeping Time,” where Whitewall chooses one watch per week that we love. Our choices won’t always be new but they will be noteworthy.

This week we bring you the Dôme GMT in blue and red from Dubey & Schaldenbrand. It’s a more compact and wearable addition to the brand’s very sought-after model and is a great starting point to watch lovers not too familiar with the brand. It’s also easy on the eyes – we absolutely love the light blue dial, red hands, and red leather straps (it comes in black, as well but we much prefer the blue and red).

On to the technical stuff: the Dôme GMT features a signature dual-time movement at 12 o’clock and the date with a silver hand rather than red is at 6 o’clock. The day or night counter at 9 o’clock is as off-beat as the watch’s color combo. The 12 and 24 numerals are at the 5- and 11-hour place, rather than the more obvious 6 and 12. We can dig.

Dubey & Schaldenbrand was founded in 1946 by Rene Schaldenbrand and Georges Dubey, a well-known master watchmaker and professor at the watch making school Technikum in La Chaux-de-founds. Dubey & Schaldenbrand invented the split second flyback chronograph and registered several international patents in the forties. In 2004 the brand became the first Swiss watch company to receive the “Merit for Development of Watch Making Tradition” from the International Institute of Promotion and Prestige.
