TNT RendezVous : Limpid Notes in a Mechanical World

PIERRE DEROCHE has combined the most advanced mechanical watchmaking with subtle musical poetry in its latest creation, the RendezVous, which displays a double gong under the sapphire crystal. Coupled with the striking-mechanism's on/off function, this device is unique on this kind of watch and gives this exceptional timepiece its intrinsic value. When the alarm is released, the mechanism reveals its secrets: first, the fast-and-slow, then the striking mechanism's bridge moving into action, and finally the hammers successively striking the two "Chartres" chimes (the two gongs turn more than 360° but are of different lengths). With a few clear, limpid notes produced by the best watch craftsmen from the Joux Valley, the RendezVous will remind you of your day's appointments. Series limited to 201.

Watchmaking in the genes 

For four generations, the family of Pierre Dubois, founder and CEO of Pierre DeRoche, has passionately cultivated the science of calculating time, a savoir-faire initiated in 1901 by his great-grandfather Marcel Dépraz, founder of Dubois-Dépraz. He was succeeded by Reynold his son-in-law, Gérald his grandson, then his great grandchildren Jean-Philippe and Pascal, Pierre Dubois' brothers. A heritage transmitted and developed from generation to generation, and marked by over fifty patents registered in 100 years. Not only a family of dedicated watchmakers, but real trailblazers.

Three brothers, innovative ideas

More than a brand, Pierre DeRoche is all about a family spirit, that of the Dubois and the Dépraz families, living since the 1500's in Le Lieu, a small village in the Joux Valley, in the heart of Switzerland's watchmaking region. Today, it is through the Pierre DeRoche brand that Pierre Dubois and his two brothers Jean-Philippe and Pascal explore the boldest ideas and create technically sophisticated and exclusive timepieces, following in their predecessors' footsteps.

Pierre and Carole, sharing an adventure 

With their deep horological roots and knowledge of cutting-edge technology, Pierre and Carole Dubois are committed to the development of Pierre DeRoche. Their business is a perfect synthesis of family origins and a spirit of independence, both of which form an integral part of the Dubois family's DNA.
