Now, I am 52 years of age and more than a little weatherworn. I often feel a little detached from today’s society and, like the aforementioned grandmother, I view many objects from the past in a more positive light than their present-day counterparts.
I wonder if Thomas Steinemann, the CEO of Swiss watch brand, DuBois et fils, shares my view of the world.
Recently, his company has looked to the past and used a movement that was invented nearly 70 years ago, the Bidynator. This vintage movement made by FELSA was the first automatic movement with a ‘double-sided winding rotor’, today more commonly known as a bidirectional rotor. The movement was originally intended for watches worn by manual workers, hence it had to be robust.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
