Found A Unique Philippe Dufour Simplicity In Stainless Steel With Eastern Arabic Dial
After a specific number of years in watches, you think you’ve seen everything. Platinum 2499s, white-gold, hand-wound Daytonas, even a steel Lange Double-Split. And afterward a companion sends you a message and you understand that new sacred goal watches are as yet being made each and every day. Today, I am excited to show you one such watch.
A long-lasting companion of mine, somebody I’ve known since my soonest days in this industry, and somebody with whom I shared the stage on more than one occassion as an individual from the jury of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève during my residency (2013-2016), is a super authority and industry staple, Mr. Claude Sfeir. Claude and I regularly trade Whatsapp messages about watches we come across and things we are searching for and today, indeed, he held nothing back. Claude, as large numbers of you may know, claims the lone Patek Philippe Sky-Moon Tourbillon in titanium. He additionally possesses a Rolex 4113 Split-Seconds. In any case, today, he showed me something significantly cooler. Furthermore, the most awesome aspect? It’s not even his. It’s his son’s.
Ever seen a Simplicity in steel? Presently you have.
The watch you see above and to the privilege is a Simplicity, made by in all honesty Mr. Philippe Dufour. Be that as it may, it was made throughout the most recent year or something like that, and what’s more, it’s made in treated steel. In addition, the dial highlights eastern Arabic markers, and is a brilliant, “vintage” tone, as Claude portrays it. It is 37mm in distance across, and was really made to observe Claude’s child Simon’s wedding. The etching peruses “SCSfeir” on the development plate, where a number ordinarily sits.
This watch, made to commend an exceptional relationship with an extraordinary family in the realm of gathering, is the thing that this industry is all about. And while a considerable lot of you are pondering, “Wasn’t the Simplicity expected to be a restricted version of 200 pieces?” The appropriate response from Philippe himself is that the first run was 100 watches, which he at that point multiplied to 200, however it was never proposed to be carefully restricted. Also, whenever he gets the opportunity to accomplish something exceptional for unique individuals in his day to day existence, as Claude and Simon Sfeir, he does it. He as of late conveyed a special illustration of the Simplicity to a Japanese retailer that caused him fabricate his reputation.
This unique watch, conveyed to Mr. Sfeir at the Four Seasons in Geneva this evening, is an amicable update that no one has seen everything, and that is the thing that makes this world so much fun.
