As all watch lovers know, the refined and understated elegance of a Centre Second timepiece never goes out of style and Dornblueth & Sohn’s Centre Second collection is no exception. Beautifully finished cases frame subtle dials that feature clean-cut Arabic numerals and finely cut hands for optimal legibility and clarity.
With every Dornblueth & Sohn timepiece there is a level of customisation available, whether you select a high-grade stainless steel or massive gold case, sterling silver or polished ceramic dial (in any colour, and we mean any colour!) or a set of hands tailored to your taste, the end result is all about you.
The Centre Second collection is beautiful in all its variants and is designed to keep a precise track of time while looking good.
This timepiece features a striking, sterling silver dial that has been finished with the grained, silky matte surface finish typical of historical deck clocks. The result is a durable, elegant and understated timepiece of lasting appeal.
The Caliber • The Center Second is a 3-hand-timepiece coveted for its visual simplicity. The dial shows each hour numeral and minute gradation around the outer dial, with the hour, minute and second hands centred on the dial.
