Roger Dubuis Hommage Minute Repeater

This very special Roger Dubuis Tribute to the Minute Repeater model, limited to 8 exclusive pieces, leads the way in a new line which pays tribute to the brand’s namesake founder.   In addition to the minute repeater, the watch features not one but two micro-rotors in platinum, a stunningly beautiful combination.

The RD08 calibre uses a double micro-rotor in platinum, with both a minute repeater and a flying tourbillon.  Roger Dubuis notes that it “is one of the rare automatic minute repeaters to feature a double micro-rotor in platinum and it is the only one to be stamped with the Hallmark of Geneva.”  This is news to me and begs the question, who else has done a double platinum micro rotor?

Positioned just above each micro-rotor is a minute repeater hammer.  Beautiful architecture, isn’t it?
