First look…

Roger Dubuis Hommage Tribute to Mr Roger Dubuis 2014Here’s a quick preview of a new piece from Roger Dubuis, the “Hommage Tribute to Mr. Roger Dubuis”.  T his new piece whcih will be unveiled next week is said to be inspired by a particularly sophisticated model the brand’s founder and namesake launched in 2003 and features the same combination of functions: a flying tourbillon, a large date display, and a power-reserve display — in a pink gold case.  The RD 540 movement is comprised of 293 hand-finished components, with almost as many hours involved to meet the strict demands of the Poinçon de Genève (Geneva Seal).   Production of this piece will be limited to 208 pieces, which was Roger Dubuis’s registration number at the Geneva Watchmaking school where Mr. Dubuis began his training.

The tribute model is one of four limited editions in a collection of ten new Hommage references (incredible watches, by the way!!) that will be presented at the SIHH 2014, of which five will be self-winding (look out for the new RD 820 calibre self-winding movement with a microrotor) or chronographs and five will have other complications.  Among these will be the Roger Dubuis Hommage Chronograph, as well as the head-turning Excalibur Quatuor in a new, full-titanium-black DLC interpretation.  And more (#helloextraordinary)…Stay tuned!
