As you are likely aware by now, there are some superb new watches being unveiled at the Watches & Wonders show going on right now in Hong Kong. And I have for you here perhaps one of the most exciting, visually dramatic, and mechanically complex of them all: the new Roger Dubuis Hommage Minute Repeater Tourbillon Automatic. This spectacular piece features the distinctive platinum double micro-rotors (a Roger Dubuis signature, finished here in hand-guilloché pink gold) as well as a flying tourbillon and a minute repeater. Of course a watch this special will be ultra-exclusive — only 20 pieces of the Hommage Minute Repeater will be made. After all, it is the Manufacture’s 20th anniversary.

Last but not least in the 2014 Roger Dubuis new release lineup is this Hommage Automatic. This is the most basic of the Roger Dubuis’ new releases, but of course nothing that Roger Dubuis does is ever really “basic”. I say basic only in comparison to the Hommage Chronograph, the Hommage Tribute to Mr. Roger Dubuis, and particularly in comparison to the truly remarkable Hommage Double Flying Tourbillon with Hand-Cut Guilloche dial (yes it is one hell of a watch). The Hommage Automatic is a 2-handed timekeeper with snailed small seconds sub at 9 o’clock. And as you can see, it is one sharp looking watch.
In my book, this is as good as it gets folks. Roger Dubuis, the only watch brand that is 100% Poinçon de Genève certified, will officially unveil this killer Hommage Double Flying Tourbillon in 2014. Of course this is not the first double tourbillon from Roger Dubuis (if you missed my hands on with the incredible $252,000 Roger Dubuis Skeleton Double Flying Tourbillon in Black Titanium take a moment now…), but it is a new aesthetic. Aside from the double touby’s in the signature Roger Dubuis style, the dial is, like the 2014 Roger Dubuis Hommage Chronograph I showed you two days ago, made of a gorgeous deep-cut guilloché (done by hand).
