What more is there to say about Philippe Dufour that hasn’t already been said? Simply put, he is possibly the greatest living watchmaker.
Dufour’s excellence covers both the technical and aesthetic sides of watchmaking. On the technical side, he is the first watchmaker to ever make a grand sonnerie wristwatch and the first to put dual balances in a wristwatch. On the aesthetic side, his watches feature insane beautifully rounded bevels and finishing that can withstand any level of magnification and still look perfect.
Sheer watchmaking perfection.
