The reason for naming this rendition of the Ancyent
Marinere, the Regulator , stems from the basic premise that watches schedule
man's activities and coordinate them with others. d.freemont believes that the
basic function needs to be
this could easily be accomplished with one single hand. This issue was
considered in the production of the Regulator , one large hand that pointed to
the position of the “hour at hand” relative to the next division of time. But
in practice the decision to include a less imposing minute hand became the final
Regulator's unique appearance, with the
prominent hour hand, gives the wearer instant recognition of the time… and
when necessary the exact time, by consulting the minute hand. As
with all d.freemont watches, accuracy is the principal focus. The
day your watch is prepared for shipment to you, d.freemont personally makes the
final adjustment to your watch. The Swiss certification board relies upon the COSC standard that a mechanical watch must not lose more than 4 seconds per day
nor gain more than 6 seconds per day. d.freemont sets your watch to gain
between 2 and 5 seconds per day, never to lose time.
Production is limited to 100 pieces. Each case is numbered.

"I want to personally thank you for your first rate service and delivery
of my extraordinary new Regulator timepiece! This is my first - and
certainly not my last - D. Freemont timepiece.
Your thoughtful attention to detail to every aspect of manufacturing,
inspection and delivery of this timepiece is very evident! I ordered my
Regulator with the high grade, supple, black leather strap with
the form fitting deployant closure. I love the decorative touches on
both the bezel and the rotor. The dial is stunning, and the generously
luminescent hands are easy to read in any light. It is a wonder that you
can manage to sell such a fine timepiece at such an affordable price!
Your letter of thanks was a very nice personal touch, as well.
I look forward to ordering various mechanical timepieces from your fine
company in the future. Thanks, again! Very truly yours," SD
Marinere watch I purchased arrived within 3 days! It is
stunning, and I am honored to have the opportunity to own a piece of
your work. Many of your past customers praise you for maintaining a high
standard of quality, value and outstanding service……..and now I know
why. Beautiful workmanship, prompt attention to inquiries, and
very fast service. Over the past 25 years, I have collected well over
two hundred Swiss watches. Finally, I have my first (of many, I hope) d.
freemont watches! Well done. VERY well done. With gratitude and best
“I received the watch as promised. I would like to say thank you to both you and Barbara for such a wonderful experience. I love the watch, and couldn’t be more pleased. I am
already giving the highest praise to you and your company.” DU
“I won several “top end” time pieces which have all been factory adjusted and cleaned and none
are as accurate as my d.freemont’s. My compliments on a truly extraordinary effort!.” DH

I look forward to doing business with you again.” JS
