Incoming! Roger Dubuis Bi-Retrograde Perpetual Calendar Chronograph in Palladium

 By: toowoundup : January 13th, 2021-09:20
It's finally here!  I've waited a long time to finally get my hands on an early Roger Dubuis.  And this to me is the ultimate expression of early Roger Dubuis (other than maybe the Sympathie Minute Repeater wink). The 34mm Case is a perfect size for the cushion shape and overall I couldn't be more happy.  The watch is also in Palladium which seems to be quite rare.  I cannot find another mention of a Palladium Sympathie ever being made.  I do know there were some Unique Pieces in Palladium for the Hommage line but that's it.  I'd appreciate it if anyone could shed some light on the issue.  Enjoy some photos!

Huge congrats. That is a very original and fine watch you got, in an uncommon metal. Great catch!

Enjoy it and take good care of it - you won’t find anything like it on a wrist near you.



I'll do my best! Cheers!

The Sympathie S34 is my favorite case from Roger Dubuis.

It really is of perfect proportions

One of the greatest case shapes ever...

...especially with the matching shaped crystal. The palladium is bonus. To me it always looked a bit hard to read, but because of its beauty I give it a pass : )

Haha thank you!

Me neither, especially in the Sympathie line. Maybe its a piece unique, who knows?

He only made a max of 28 of each configuration back then. There would be some indication if you have the papers or possibly marked on the case back.

Don't have papers

I do have a movement number, but I don't think that tells me much.

Wow! A stunning and bold watch.

Top notch, both the style and the craftsmanship.


Thanks Daniel!

Love his older watches and wish they did some reissues or did more watches like this one!
