Revered by watch enthusiasts for its heritage and unassuming presentation, the Regulator complication presents timekeeping information in a deconstructed manner. Focusing on the passage of minutes and seconds around the outer dial, the hours are decentralised and shown on a sub dial at 6 o’clock in a most charming manner. Dornblueth & Sohn’s Regulator has the added feature of a power reserve gauge set at 12 o’clock to help you keep track of your run-time.
This is a stunning timepiece with a precise & beautiful movement that will retain its allure and functionality for many generations to come. The solid rose gold case enhances its value and its beauty for your ongoing enjoyment.
The Caliber • Inspired by the repair of an old precision pendulum clock the Regulator expands the timepiece variety of the Dornblüth manufacture. The Dornblüth-team combined the interaction of the original eccentric hours and the inhouse development of the power reserve indicator with a center second and created a new design for the Regulator.
