Design

In this section we will give you some background information on the design process of our various watch lines.

We wanted the design for the Dufeau Flight Path to be a reflection of the past but also a new fresh start for the future. For our design we used the following three vintage Dufeau watches:

Dufeau Wright Brothers
Dufeau DC3 Swissair
Dufeau Otto Lilienthal

We combined these designs to form a stunning stainless steel watch. 

It measuers:

Diameter: 38mm / with crown: 42mm
Height: 13,7mm, length 6-12: 48,3mm

For the dial we wanted to have it very legible, both during day and night. We use Swiss Grade BGW9 or Vintage Superluminova. The Dufeau logo is in Silver and embossed on the dial. The dial shows hours, minutes, chronograph and day/date. 

Very bright lume, this is the BGW9 lume.

The movement we use is the very reliable Swiss automatic ETA 7750 chronograph movement. We use the Top Grade version of this movement. Before installing the movement it will be fully checked and further regulated. We use a special Turbine Engine rotor for this movement.

ETA 7750 movement with Turbine Engine red rotor.

The strap on the watch will be a very nice and comfortable leather strap, 20mm lugsize, with a deployment buckle. It’s your choice black or brown. 

Two versions

There are two versions of the Dufeau Flight Path:

Dufeau Flight Path with Swiss BGW9 lume
Dufeau Flight Path Vintage with vintage Swiss Superluminova

It’s your choice if you want to have the BGW9 or the Vintage version. Your next choice is black day/date or white day/date discs. Dufeau watches are custom made and with these choices we will make your watch to your specifications.
