And now it's really getting interesting…!

Totally in the back of hall 5.1, let’s say even behind the row which you think is the last one, is the booth of Pierre DeRoche (thanks for the tip Ernie Romers of www.watchuseek.com; I wouldn’t have found it myself).

Pierre DeRoche is owned by Pierre Dubois, a brother of the Dubois in Dubois Depraz. He invented a chronograph which indicates all chronograph functions in one single register (at the six o’clock position.

Brilliant! A hughe watch though, which has something to show behind the glass back. Exclusive movement, of course produced by Dubois Depraz. Visit their website at http://www.pierrederoche.com and I’m afraid chances are big you want one. Tomorrow I’ll have an interview with Mr. Dubois, and by then I will have price information available as well.

Regards,

Gerard

Gerard has been in the watch industry for over two decades now. He owns a watch shop in The Hague, The Netherlands, and besides that he has some journalistic and photographic activities in the field of watches. Collecting watches since he was six years old (true!) and triggered by a friend, he bought his first 'real' watch in the late eighties; an Omega Speedmaster Professional with glass back. This was the first watch of a nice, even today ever growing, collection. Later he added Rolex sports models 'with acrylic crystals' to his collection, as well as Gerald Genta designed watches and some watches more suitable for daily use than collecting.
