Pierre DeRoche : A new chronograph at the Palace !

After celebrating its 10th birthday in 2014, the Pierre DeRoche brand is making its grand entry this year into the Palace at Baselworld, a venue that generally hosts the most dynamic niche brands. Light-colored wood and transparent materials enable this husband-and-wife team of passionately dedicated watchmaking entrepreneurs to present their latest creations on a brand-new stand providing a delightfully warm, elegant and prestigious setting. Carole and Pierre Dubois have unveiled their eighth chronograph, the self-winding TNT Chrono 43 in steel and titanium. Aficionados will be sure to note a first in this collection: the display of functions on a dial. They will however recognize the Pierre DeRoche DNA in the 60-minute counter or in the generous view of the mechanism (in this instance a Dubois Dépraz movement). To add a practical and convenient touch to this attractive model, Pierre DeRoche now also offers a useful app.
