Dubbing 2015 the “Year of the Astral Skeleton”, all of the new Roger Dubuis models are intricately skeletonized and immaculately finished, with a decidedly contemporary aesthetic. And not just the dials and calibers — Roger Dubuis has extended the skeleton work to the case components as well. The manufacture — which only makes pieces which meet the stringent standards to bear the Poinçon de Geneve (Geneva Seal) — has segmented its skeleton tourbillons into three distinct intrepretations this year: “technical” “automatic” and “creative”.
If you are wondering the significance of the”Astral” theme, Roger Dubuis replies as follows: “The short, philosophical answer is because the Manufacture has always been committed to reaching for the horological stars. The more technical reason is because this is the term that most aptly sums up the Roger Dubuis approach to skeleton movements. Stars and constellations are the ‘stellar’ (pun definitely intended) inspiration behind its work in this field, and it is high time for them to shine as brightly as they deserve.”
