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 99.2 forms part of the classic collection with centred hour & minute hand, a power reserve gauge at 3 o’clock and an enlarged small second sub dial set at 9 o’clock. 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, the additional information on the dial delivers added functionality without compromising the charming design.
