Outlook 2017 Jean-Marc Pontroué, CEO Roger Dubuis
At the SIAR show in Mexico and the SalonQP in London partnered by GMT, brand leaders cast a glance back at the 2016 highlights and look ahead to those of 2017.
2016 : “It was ladies’ year! For the very first time, Roger Dubuis displayed a strong determination to defend the cause of mechanical watchmaking within a feminine Fine Watchmaking environment, yielding good results for this Velvet collection. In parallel, we continued our extension of the distribution network, opening a fourth boutique in Macao, a second in Beijing, and a first in Tokyo, in New York and in the Duabi Mall. Finally, after approaching 25 potential partners, we have experienced a certain number of partnerships, notably with the FFF racing team by Fu Songyang of China, who shares his passion through invitations extended to other car collectors.”
2017 : “We will capitalize on three partnerships in the supercar world, linked to the experiences we wish to offer our clients alongside the products they purchase. These will be unveiled at the SIHH, at the Geneva Car Show and at the Pebble Beach concours d’élégance. We are talking about an authentic alliance, since joint developments will be undertaken between our teams and leveraging our respective expertise. Our supercar partners are as eager to move ahead as we are, which is a very important aspect. Excalibur will be very much in the spotlight.”
The Roger Dubuis Manufacture was founded on the desire for independence and watchmaking excellence. With remarkable dynamism, Roger Dubuis quickly ignited the world of Haute Horlogerie and has developed over thirty completely original in-house movements. Striking a fine balance between traditional watchmaking expertise and avant‑garde design, the Manufacture became a specialist in architectural skeletonised movements.Find out more >
