Roger Dubuis Velvet Haute Couture Corsetry
Roger Dubuis launched three new Velvet Haute Couture limited editions at Watches&Wonders 2014. Here is the "Corsetry" model.
Last week, WorldTempus presented the Velvet Haute Couture "Mink Fur" watch, which was unveiled at Watches & Wonders 2014.
We focus today on the "Corsetry" watch, a timepiece capturing the spirit of corsetry in a very glamorous model and housing a mechanical self-winding movement.
Manufacture Roger Dubuis turned to the Artisans Selliers – leading Swiss specialists in high-end straps and leather goods dedicated to excellence in their own domain of fine craftsmanship – to create the ‘corset-style’ strap. Hugging the wrist just as a corset embraces voluptuous feminine curves, the intricately detailed Corset strap features elaborate black lacing creating a striking contrast with the surrounding smooth calfskin leather in a flesh-pink shade echoing that of classic soft ballet shoes.
The diamond-paved tonneau-shaped dial centre of this creation is paved with 162 brilliantcut diamonds, framed by a silver-toned satin sunburst exterior bearing the signature Velvet Roman numerals in black or pink gold picking up the colours of the 36 mm case and the strap. The bezel, lugs and décor are also set with diamonds.
The watch is delivered with an additional blushing pink genuine alligator leather strap.
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 >
