Actually, the "great days" of Dubuis, are for me, the very best in watchmaking. Creative yet classic. Great movements. I love the Sympathie case with the shaped crystal like yours. I also love the "Calatrava" style pieces he made back then I find NOTHING appealing in the latest version of Dubuis - i
Sham, we have our disagreements on THIS particular layout, but we both agree - this is one of the best overall watches made in a LONG time - the brothers did an incredible job on the movement and overall aesthetic.
Yes, the 5270 is worse, but this chin breaks the harmony. I LOVE hand made watches, hand craftsmanship. Who cares where in the world it is made? More important, is that it is handcrafted. The original version intelligently says "Handcrafted" there, and the statement of hand craftsmanship on this one
Remember the Patek 5270 "Chin" and how it was ridiculed and thus discontinued? The original dials on this piece are clean at 6 o clock. This one has "The Netherlands" written on it (totally unnecessary) and a chin created for it (extra chins are never good, on humans or on watch dials)
The remontoire on the dial and watching it in action was the best part of having this watch on the wrist during the day! I hope Lange does not make a 1815 Tourbillion with the tourbillon not visible dial side!
