Philippe Dufour is one of the most respected master watchmakers working in the industry today.  Born in the Vallée de Joux, he attended the Sentier technical school at the age of 15 and pursued watchmaking in 1967.  Dufour was employed by world renowned watchmaking manufactures such as Jaeger-LeCoultre, Audemars Piguet and Gerald Genta.  In 1989 however, he decided to produce watches under his own name.   Dufour joined the prestigious ranks of the AHCI (Académie des horlogers et créateurs indépendants / Horological Academy of Independent Creators) in 1992 after three years working on his masterwork – the world's first grande and petite sonnerie minute repeating wristwatch. 

The present lot is a unique Philippe Dufour masterpiece, superbly crafted in 18k pink gold and fitted with an elegant white enamel dial, one of four pieces ever made and the only one in this precious metal.  This impressive timepiece debuted at the 1992 Basel Fair and stunned the watch industry premiering as the first ever grande and petite sonnerie minute repeating wristwatch produced by any maker.  This Philippe Dufour timepiece makes its auction debut and presents a unique collecting opportunity for truly dedicated connoisseurs of independent horology.   

The hinged case back opens pleasingly to reveal an exquisitely finished and intricate two-train movement.  The highly polished bevelled edges and curved bridges of the movement guide the admirer through an impeccable and sophisticated canvas of horological art.  Through a button in the crown, the trip repeat mechanism is activated and the two sliding levers in the case band adjust the grande and petite sonnerie mode from striking to silent, and hour striking to hour and quarter striking. 

Philippe Dufour是當今鐘錶業最受人尊崇的製錶大師之一。他出生於瑞士製錶重鎮Vallee de Joux,15歲起就讀尚提耶技術學校,並於1967年開啟了鐘錶業的職業生涯。Dufour曾受雇于世界知名鐘錶製造大廠積家,愛彼及尊達。在1989年,Dufour決定獨立經營個人品牌,並在之後的三年傾力打造他的傑作------世界首枚大小自鳴三問腕錶。在1992年,Dufour的名字躋身於AHCI權威榜單之列。

今次為藏家呈現的這枚腕錶是Philippe Dufour的心血之作,18K粉紅金錶殼搭配白色琺瑯錶盤,盡顯高貴優雅。此款腕錶全球僅生產四枚且僅此枚為獨一無二之粉紅金材質,彌足珍貴。此款令人過目不忘的腕錶首次於1992年巴塞爾鐘錶展上面世,做為首枚大小自鳴三問腕錶,令全球同業為之驚豔。這枚首見於拍賣市場的非凡之作必將成為收藏獨立製錶人作品的頂級藏家的心水之物,為您的收藏錦上添花。

開啟背部錶殼即可欣賞做工精緻細密的雙輪雙置機芯。純手工打磨的精美零件及夾板,引領藏家細細品味這幅精密極致的鐘錶藝術畫卷。透過錶冠處的按鈕,即可啟動打簧報時功能,位於錶殼外緣的兩個滑動鈕可調節大小自鳴功能,切換報時與靜音,整點報時與時刻報時之間的功能。
