Features and Benefits

 
 

Duboule Gents Broughshane Automatic

Flyback Date Stainless Steel Tank/Blue Dial

 
 

 

This innovative timepiece from Duboule is not only a

nod towards wonderful craftsmanship, but also the

amazing advances in timekeeping techniques.

 

Among the features of the ‘Broughshane’, you can see that

the typical date window for many other watches isn’t present;

instead the upper half of the dial is consumed by a smooth half-arc

of numbers running left to right from ‘1’ to ‘31’. To further delight your

senses, you’ll see that after the red-tipped indicator hits ‘31’,

it flies back from right to left back to ‘1’ for the next month to begin.

 

Let’s not forget the elegantly curved stainless steel tank or the polished

bracelet either, as they make this timepiece all the more pristine to

go along with your impeccable sense of style.

By the late 16th century master watchmakers were distinguished by

their diversity and pure imagination; the sky was the limit for style

and function alike. Timepieces were often made inside of pendants

and charms shaped into everything from human skulls to various

animals like dogs, rabbits, and even fish. The more obscure the piece,

the better. As the complexity of timepieces matured, the distinction

between watches and other types of jewelry became more defined.

Actually, many early watchmakers were also goldsmiths and engravers

and yet many of these craftsmen did not sign their work. It wasn’t until

the early 17th century when watches first became true collectors items

that they required engravings of the creator’s name.

 
 

Then a jeweler and watchmaker by the name of Martin Duboule

took signing to the next level when he added the phrase, “à Genève”

underneath his name. This revolutionary decision was first presented

on a skull watch made circa 1620. Martin was also known in his trade

as a lapidary (precious stone engraver). This ability was well

recognized when he created the earliest known Geneva watch

decorated with champlevé enamel that now resides in Paris’

Cluny museum.

 
 

Throughout the early 1600’s Martin Duboule took on apprentices such as

Abraham Patru, Jean Brendon, and Charles Arbalestrier not only to

teach them about making watches but also about engraving. In the end,

one of his most prolific students turned out to be his own son, Jean-Baptiste.

 
 

Jean-Baptiste Duboule soon became a master watchmaker and

engraver in his own right. The astronomical fusee watch he made ca.

1680 now resides in the British museum and is claimed to be the

finest piece ever made for its time. This masterpiece goes so far as

to include separate dials for the day of the week (represented by

the moon, sun, and the 5 known planets at the time: Mars, Mercury,

Jupiter, Venus, and Saturn), moon phase, day & night, the four

seasons, and the month with corresponding sign of the zodiac.

All of these functions are placed within a finely engraved perforated

case so that the tiny bells inside could be heard when they chimed

at the top of the hour. Its creator even went so far as to engrave

every gear and winding mechanism inside that furthermore

accentuates its exquisite beauty.

 
 

jean-Baptiste would also gain recognition for watches created with

hand painted interior and exterior designs. His father made sure

that he received a secondary apprenticeship in 1629 with Marc

Grangier, a watchmaker and painter from Châtellerault. Many

timepieces of the day were created with metallic oxide paints upon

a white enamel bb. The subject matter of these miniature

paintings was just about as diverse as the cases and some were

even portraits of the watch’s owner. Jean-Baptiste, in particular,

would often go so far as to explore multiple enamel techniques

on the same piece.

 
 
 

Jean-Baptiste Duboule also would go on to revolutionize the

fusee watch design. By the mid-17th century, watches operated

with a mainspring made of either a length of catgut or chain.

This spring, after the watch had been fully wound, will slowly

wrap around a conical spiral as the timekeeper runs during

the course of the day. Around 1660, there was a great deal of

concern that the chain would not settle properly within the

grooves of the fusee spiral. By recontouring the groove,

Jean-Baptiste made sure that the fusee chain wouldn’t come

loose through the normal wear and tear of the watch.

 
 

It is due to both father and son’s immeasurable talents and

contributions to the watchmaking world that we pay tribute.

The plethora of beautiful timepieces that make up the Duboule

collection are made with a perfect balance of precise

craftsmanship and refined presence. So join us as we

remember the brilliant watches of the past with these

incredible timepieces of today.
