Dupey and Schaldenbrand


Reprising its famous Carré Cambré or "Cushion" shape so popular in the 1920's, this particular model was limited to 100 pieces only. Typical of the Art Nouveau motifs, its guilloché dial features the delicate "fritillary" (Fritillaria Meleagris), an almost extinct flower that can only be found in the Vallée des Ponts-de-Martel.
Based on the hand-wound AS Schild movement, caliber 1216, which was in production in the 1920's, the case is in .925 sterling silver with Palladium plating to avoid tarnishing. 17 jewels, sub seconds at 6 o'clock, sapphire crystal, water resistant to 30 meters.
