In our opinion, this is the rarest and most beautiful modern Art Deco inspired watch ever made. This is the Dubey & Schaldenbrand Venus D.275 Aerodyn limited edition watch in 18K rose gold and includes its original box and papers. Only 25 of these watches were made and many were immediately reserved and purchased for the private collection of people directly connected with Dubey including jewelers and distributors. These almost never come-up for sale. The watch was designed by Cinette Robert, Swiss watch industry visionary and the former owner and head of Dubey, and contains a rare vintage tonneau shaped Durowe D.275 movement that Dubey hand-engraved. Cinette Robert had acquired a number of rare vintage movements during the 1970's quartz crisis. While others were walking away from mechanical movements, Ms Robert had the vision to obtain and safeguard these movements for the day they could be used again in Dubey's finest limited edition offerings. We have never seen a more beautiful dial on a watch, at any price, than the one on this watch. This watch can only be described as breathtakingly beautiful.
