Here is a striking and elegant Auguste Reymond Dixieland automatic watch from an independent discreet artisanal Swiss brand. The dial is silver with guilloche decoration and the crown is fitted with a blue translucent carbon stone. The watch measures 37 x 47 mm and has a tonneau-shaped stainless steel barrel case fitted with a curved sapphire crystal and display back. The case is slightly curved to fit the wrist.
The movement is a 26-jewel Swiss movement based on SW200 and then modified in August Reymond’s workshop and fitted with a gold engraved rotor. It has a power reserve of 42 hours.
This example is fitted with a handmade Belgian blue-grey shark skin strap with a polished stainless steel buckle that matches the watch case.
The small family-owned and independent brand Auguste Reymond, has been in operation for over 100 years. Auguste Reymond has returned to its roots as an assembly workshop working to artisanal principles, with a dozen employees assembling the brand’s watches by hand, in what the brand refers to “the opposite of mass production”. The company’s main objective is to remain independent. Auguste Reymond, also known as ARSA (Auguste Reymond SA) is an independent Swiss watchmaking company, located in Nidau, in the cradle of Swiss watchmaking in the Swiss Jura. For more than a century, their brand is known for manufacturing high-quality “Swiss-made” watches
This particular Auguste Reymond Dixieland automatic watch came from the collection of a prominent horology industry executive and has seen very little use as it was part of a large watch collection. This is an elegant watch that is ready to accompany its new owner on his next adventure.
