Dupey and schaldenbrand

Carré Cambré Doctor

Long before the chronograph became synonymous with sports timing, it was primarily used for specialized industrial work, the military, and the world of medicine. Extra scales on the dial provided for precise measurements of certain periods of time.
In this particular limited edition, Dubey & Schaldenbrand present a typical mono pusher chronograph of the first generation with a pulsometer scale as used in the past by the medical profession for simplified pulse taking. Unique is the fact that the mono pusher was placed on the left of the case. The movement used in the "Doctor" is a manual wind, modified Valjoux Caliber 23 from 1916. Available in 18K Rose Gold, it is limited to 25 pieces only.

This brand was founded in 1946 and is headed by a woman watchmaker.Based in the Neuchâtel mountains and great-granddaughter of renowned watchmaker Meylan-Lecoultre, Cinette Robert presides over this brand
