Hours, minutes and seconds are deliberately deconstructed into three different cycles of time that elapse individually but tell time collaboratively. The regulator complication first appeared in the late 18th century on clocks to improve legibility when checked by watchmakers as a reference time for the accuracy of their pocket watches. In the artistic sense there is clarity and precision in separating each hand to demonstrate the purity of each cycle of time. The centre hand reflects the minutes while the hand that is left of centre indicates the hour of the day. The full 24 hours of the day are reflected giving the wearer a more complete sense of time. The seconds hand moves constantly and smooth – reflecting the inevitable passing of time – as a fluid concept. What must be also viewed and understood is the care and detail taken in even the cleanest of lines and layouts on the Regulator. The dial curves at the very lip creating a domed, three-dimensional outlook. The minute hand matches the same curve thanks to its careful machining of the hand so that it fits precisely underneath the lens and flows with the lines of the dial surface. The case is beautifully streamlined – with a curved glass on the top and see through mineral glass on the case-back that allows for a clear view of the self-winding movement.

Aalto Automatic

The Aalto Automatic impresses with its unique asymmetrical dial composition. Seconds-, minute and hour indications are seperated from each other, making it possible to read the time faster. The hours are reflected as full 24 hours, giving the wearer a more complex sense of time. DuFa characteristically, the dial is plain and simple and doesn’t let the watch seem overloaded.

DuFa – Deutsche Uhrenfabrik Thüringen

DuFa stands for “German Uhrenfabrik Thüringen”, which means “German watch factory Thüringen”. It was founded in March 1989 by Otto Hott, Eckart Haller and his sister Doris Stoll-Haller. During and after the quartz-crisis in the 70’s to mid 80’s it was not easy to found and establish a watch brand. Over the years DuFa never established as their founders would have wished for and they declared bankruptcy in the 1990’s. Since 2016 the company was bought and the spirit revived. Like the phoenix from the ashes, DuFa creates time pieces again like their founders had dreamed it.

German minimalistic design

Thüringen is a state in the heart of Germany where we can find the famous city Weimar, the birthplace of the Bauhaus. The school was founded by Walter Gropius in Weimar in 1919 and was a merger of the Weimar Saxon Grand Ducal Art School and the Weimar Academy of Fine Art. The minimalistic design of DuFa watches correspond to the philosophy of the Bauhaus: Less is more.

Bauhaus spirit today

DuFa watches unifies the best of the iconic Bauhaus school traditions, underpinned by uncompromising modern standards in manufacturing and componentry. Understatement, neo-classical aesthetic, each piece embodies the movement’s philosophy. DuFa horological instruments have always been synonymous with German precision engineering. From its historic origin at the famed Etzold & Popitz watch and clock factory to its current incarnation as a contemporary watch brand, the timepieces have been produced in the midst of Germany’s rich architectural and cultural landscape. With this heritage of sophisticated excellence and spirit, DuFa’s legacy lives on.
