Franck Dubarry Revolution Fileteado GMT
To create his new model, Franck Dubarry drew its inspiration from “Fileteado Porteño” art born in the back streets of Buenos Aires in the early 20th century and brought over in Argentina by the Italian immigrants in the 20’s.
As a great traveler himself, the brand’s eponymous designer, Franck Dubarry, naturally wanted to develop an automatic GMT watch. He imagined his timepieces as guides, able to satisfy even the most pragmatic traveler’s requirements. This Hommes et Femmes collection stamps its personality on the lineage of GMT watches, breaking classical conventions of a 12-hour revolution with a 24-hour dial that highlights two time zones.

His passion for different cultures draws Franck Dubarry to make regular stops in Argentina, where he feels a strong connection with the country’s artespecially Fileteado Porteño, born in the back streets of Buenos Aires in the early 20th century when it was brought over by immigrants from Italy. The whole decorative repertoire and emblematic style of this artistic movement are manifest in the Revolution Fileteado GMT design. One glance is all it takes to be smitten. First to catch the eye is its novel case, with curved lines and spiraling scrolls engraved like a luminous filigree pattern.

This timepiece is available in two materials : rose gold or titanium. The rose gold case is available in a ladies' version featuring a diamond-studded bezel and a white background to the dial, as well as in a men's version featuring a carbon bezel and an anthracite gray background to the dial. The dial is decorated with colorful arabesques. Flowers, hearts and vanitas symbols intertwine to create an original, hand-painted design. Jaunty colors inject a sense of freshness. The Grade 5 titanium case comes with a dial hammered like a silver coin to produce striking contrasts and reveal unexpected plays of light.

Franck Dubarry reinterprets watchmaking design in the light of the philosophical values handed down to him from the French Revolution, to create a contemporary designer object. Every model features different shades in a harmonious composite, so it has a character all its own. From the resolutely rock’n’roll attitude of the Revolution Titanium to the radiant softness of the Revolution Gold, the myriad styles are testimony of the brand’s creative talent.
The back of the movement bears an engraving of the brand’s motto, “Libertas, Intrepidus, Honor”-an ode to creative freedom, liberty, and the renewal of art. The lugs have been carefully worked to ensure ergonomic comfort. Extending from the lugs, an Elastogator© strap affords comfort and practicality, while bringing a finishing touch of elegance.
Franck Dubarry's mission is to develop sporty and elegant luxury watches with a touch of style that appeal to hyperactive non-conformists who are passionate about watches, just like the brand's founder.Find out more >
