Dornblueth & Sohn’s timepieces are renowned for their classical appearance, precise, in-house movements, and exquisite craftsmanship. The calibre 99 collections epitomise these traits and present various complications with Dornblueth’s DNA and signature finish.
The 99.0 is the classic collection with centred hour & minute hand and small second sub dial. Whether you opt for a light or dark dial in a polished steel or massive rose gold case, with or without applied indices or bespoke finishes, you will be thrilled with the wearability and reliability of this model.
The Caliber • The caliber 99.0 is the variant on the movements of the 99-family, reduced to its essentials. As to craftsmanship, the same quality standards were kept for the three-hands movement with the small off-center second display as for the original Dornblüth movement, its big brother caliber 99.2.
