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.
The Roger Dubuis Manufacture in Geneva was founded in 1995. It resulted from a meeting between the famous watchmaker of the same name and entrepreneur Carlos Dias.
From the outset, the Manufacture Roger Dubuis's ambition was to become a top-level, fully integrated manufacture. After four years of development, in 1999 the first calibres fully designed and developed in-house were unveiled.
To have resources commensurate with his ambitions, in 2001 Roger Dubuis built his manufacture in Meyrin, on the outskirts of Geneva. This light and airy building in an avant-garde style houses all the watchmaking trades, along with the Manufacture Roger Dubuis's headquarters.
On the strength of its success with true watch connoisseurs, in 2005 Roger Dubuis decided on an extension. In 2008, the Roger Dubuis Manufacture became a part of the Richemont Group.
More recently, Roger Dubuis presented two world firsts in 2013 with the RD-101 calibre, the world’s first mechanical calibre with four balance assemblies and five differentials to link them together, which came in the first watch case in the industry to be produced entirely in silicon.
In 2015, the Manufacture Roger Dubuis reaffirmed its strong position in the field of contemporary skeleton watches with the Excalibur Spider Skeleton, which was also presented in a version with the world’s first gem-set rubber bezel.
Swiss watch manufacturer Roger Dubuis is governed by an audacious mindset that drives innovation while cultivating profound respect for traditions. Since its founding in 1995, the company has shown an unswerving commitment to push the technical boundaries of fine watchmaking, incorporating high-end mechanical complications in uncompromising designs.

La Monégasque: Drawing its inspiration from Monte Carlo, the La Monégasque collection's distinctive feature is its unique shape, highlighting refined, elegant lines. A contemporary interpretation of watchmaking codes rooted in tradition, the La Monégasque collection's watchwords are audacity and excellence.
Pulsion: The Pulsion collection is technical, powerful and dynamic. Its screwed crystal and lack of a crown make it stand out. It combines the dynamism and strength one expects from watches built for action with all the visible complexity of contemporary Haute Horlogerie.
Velvet: The Velvet watches, divas of Fine Watchmaking, attract everyone's attention with their outstanding charisma. Featuring split-level stylised dials; figures and appliques converging on the centre; decorated clasps; and the part-circle, part-barrel shape of the trompe-l'oeil cases, they are a virtuoso, poetic expression of the brand's codes.
