The first Chronomètre FERDINAND BERTHOUD arrives on the Place Vendôme in Paris
Karl-Friedrich Scheufele and Pierre Dubail
The first Chronomètre FERDINAND BERTHOUD N° 01/50 has arrived at the DUBAIL Boutique, Place Vendôme in Paris.
Paris, known as the City of Light, provides a splendid setting for the launch of Chronométrie FERDINAND BERTHOUD, the new watch Manufacture paying tribute to the eponymous watchmaker from the Age of Enlightenment when the French capital acquired this name.
An exceptional location for an exceptional watchmaker
What can one say of the Place Vendôme? A place where Ferdinand Berthoud frequently exercised his finest skills in the service of the King of France. His workshop was situated on the Rue de Harlay on the Île de la Cité, between the Quai des Orfèvres and the Quai de l’Horloge. He is known to have spent a lot of time on the Place Vendôme, particularly in the pursuit of his scientific research. This place symbolising the inimitable French ‘art of living’ is an inspirational location that is a magnet for the world’s greatest luxury brands.
A shared passion
The passion for fine watchmaking cultivated by two families, united on the initiative of Karl-Friedrich Scheufele along with Pierre and Patrice Dubail, enables us to announce with great pride the arrival on the Place Vendôme of the two first treasures from Chronométrie FERDINAND BERTHOUD.
How better to mark this milestone than to showcase the Chronomètre FERDINAND BERTHOUD FB 1 in white gold, engraved with the inscription 1/50 signifying its status as the first in this exclusive 50-piece series?
This first model, conveying a wealth of history and dynastic tradition, is stirring considerable interest among the many collectors who have grasped the sheer scope of the task that Karl-Friedrich Scheufele is seeking to accomplish. As usual, his endeavours are governed by rigorous discipline and high standards, values naturally shared by the Dubail family.
