Customer Review:

"I purchased the first ancient mariner from you all number of years ago…I have many watches…Uylsse Nardin, Rolex, on from there….but I'll tell you the quality and attention to detail, looks and workmanship in your watches…is so far above these others its almost laughable.  For the heck of it,  I took part in a kickstart of a new company LUXURY watch…I don’t think people understand what luxury means…its not PRICE its workmanship, its what makes the watch.. you all have nailed it.. from many years of work and detail….I enjoy and appreciate my watch more every year…"  R A



  Ancyent Marinere


View Back                         Swiss Made                        Limited Production 

The 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. 

The technical characteristics of the Regulator include a d.freemont specified 25 jewel automatic ETA 2824 movement – which permits the accuracy level we demand.  The 37mm case is stainless steel with a low profile 9mm, sapphire crystal, screw down bezel, and view back with a water resistance of
5 ATM – 150 ft.

Production is limited to 100 pieces. Each case is numbered. 

"Nothing more Noble than Kindness"
is engraved on the view back.

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 prominent – 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 rendition.

Customer Comments:

"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

"The Ancyent 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 regards."  DH

 “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

“Thanks for such excellent service and an excellent product at a bargain price. 
I look forward to doing business with you again.”  JS

"I have purchased 5 of your watches [including Panama, Regulator, and Voyager] and have always been pleased with never a case of buyer's remorse."  BM
